Lordy! James A. Baker, the FBI lawyer who is reportedly under investigation for classified security leaks just so happens to be a close confidant of none other than failed, fired and corrupt ex-FBI director James Comey. That’s yet another amazing coincidence to this story that the media is basically ignoring (like they are with the Awan story.)

Baker is a close confidant of former FBI Director James Comey, and recent media reports suggested he was reportedly advising the then-FBI director on legal matters following private meetings the former director had in February with President Trump in the Oval Office.
Baker was appointed to the FBI’s general counsel by Comey in 2014 and has had a long and distinguished history within the intelligence community.
After working as a federal prosecutor in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice during the 1990s, he joined the Office of Intelligence Policy and Review In 1996, according to his FBI bio.
In 2006 Baker received the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in counter-terrorism—the CIA’s highest counter-terrorism award, according to his biography. During Baker’s long and distinguished career he received the “NSA’s Intelligence Under Law Award; the NSA Director’s Distinguished Service Medal; and DOJ’s highest award— the Edmund J. Randolph Award.”
The chickens are coming home to roost. Don’t be surprised if Taliban John Brennan gets caught up in the leaking scandal either.
