Secret Service Sought to Defame Congressman Who Was Probing Agency

Sputnik – 01.10.2015

A government watchdog report released on Wednesday contains information suggesting that an assistant director of the Secret Service wanted “embarrassing” information leaked about a congressman who was critical of the agency.

“Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out,” Assistant Director Edward Lowery wrote in an email to another director regarding Representative Jason Chaffetz. “Just to be fair.”

The email was sent on March 31, and two days later media outlets reported that Chaffetz had applied to be a Secret Service agent in 2003, and was rejected.

The Agency’s anger followed a House hearing on March 24 during which Chaffetz scolded Lowery as well as the Agency for their record of security lapses and misconduct.

Following the hearing, 45 Secret Service agents looked into Chaffetz’ file that was contained in a restricted database. Some of them shared the information amongst themselves.

Chaffetz’ personnel file was restricted and required to be kept private by law.

Lowery maintained during an inspector general’s probe that he was simply venting in the email and did not tell anyone to leak the private information.

Immediately following the revelation, Chaffetz released a statement condemning the agency’s actions.

“Certain lines should never be crossed,” he wrote. “The unauthorized access and distribution of my personal information crossed that line. It was a tactic designed to intimidate and embarrass me and frankly, it is intimidating. It’s scary to think about all the possible dangers in having your personal information exposed. The work of the committee, however, will continue. I remain undeterred in conducting proper and rigorous oversight.”

  1. That’s how the USA works…………..Get embarrassing information on anyone in positions of power, and keep it for an appropriate time to release it, and destroy that person publicly…………………..Elliot Spitzer, who wanted to prosecute NYC Banksters when he was NY Attorney General, is a Prime example……………….
    It’s the same system used by J Edgar Hoover when he ran the FBI. He had SO MUCH “dirt” in his files, even U.S. Presidents didn’t dare cross him……………………

  2. Bill Clinton and (Jewess) Monica Lewinsky…. The Zionists are the masters at set-ups/entrapments, dossiers, blackmail, character assassination, physical assassination (as necessary), etc. Just one more (international) example: Mordechai Vanunu.
