It’s OK If – Oh, Hell, You Know the Rest of It

From Holden:

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Traitor) did indeed disclose classified information, to both CNN and Fox:</p<

Federal investigators have concluded that Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., divulged classified intercepted messages to the media when he was on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, according to sources.

Specifically, Fox News chief political correspondent Carl Cameron confirmed to FBI investigators that Shelby verbally divulged the information to him during a June 19, 2002, interview, minutes after Shelby’s committee had been given the information in a classified briefing, according to the sources, who declined to be identified.

Cameron did not air the material. Moments after Shelby spoke with Cameron, the senator met with CNN’s Dana Bash, and CNN, citing “two congressional sources,” broadcast the material about half an hour later, the sources said.

The Justice Department empaneled a grand jury in the case, but they decided not to pursue criminal charges. Any punishment for Shelby’s crimes is now left to the Senate Ethics Committee, and they are keeping their mouths shut.</p
