I’m not saying there wasn’t malicious intent behind the article written by The Intercept, just that they are claiming that all the info came from a FOIA request, not a leak from within the intelligence community. Here is a quote from their article:
“The records were not confidential, medical, nor leaked. They are publicly available law enforcement records obtained under a routine Virginia FOIA request to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and provided by the office’s FOIA coordinator. Copies of The Intercept’s correspondence with the sheriff’s office are being published with this story.”
They do go on to provide the documents showing the FOIA request.
Congressmen Burchett has shared the view that it was leaked by the intelligence community, but I don’t know if that’s true, but there seems to be evidence to the contrary.
A FOIA request is certainly less entertaining than “the intelligence community leaked dirt on Grusch to try and discredit him”.
