Are we past the point now where it is forbidden to criticize the FBI or any of the country’s intelligence agencies? Because there’s more news out Wednesday night about leaks to The Intercept.

Remember last year when government contractor Reality Winner was alleged to have passed a classified NSA report to The Intercept? Looks like we’re doing that again.
A Minneapolis FBI agent who started his career with the agency as an intern in 2000 has been charged with leaking classified information to the news website The Intercept.
Terry James Albury, who was assigned as Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport liaison working on counterterrorism matters, was charged this week by the Justice Department’s National Security Division with one count of “knowingly and willfully” transmitting documents and information relating to national defense to a reporter for a national news organization. Albury was also charged with a second count of refusing to hand over documents to the government.
“The Intercept does not discuss anonymous sources” says a statement posted on their website, but they sure do seem to burn them.

Terry Albury is the second person charged for leaking secret documents to Intercept. In June 2017, an intelligence contractor was charged with leaking a classified report about Russia's interference in the 2016 election to the Intercept.

The genius reporters at The Intercept — armed with all their soooooper strength crypto gear — burn a second whistleblower in one year (all while hoarding Snowden’s files)
