REPORT: The FBI Has Raided The Home Of Other US Leaker


On July 4, Greenwald tweeted that it "seems clear" there were multiple leakers from inside the US intelligence apparatus, a statement that implied Snowden may have started a wave of disclosures from national security insiders that the US intelligence community would be powerless to stop.

Now, Yahoo investigative journalist Michael Isikoff is reporting that Greenwald's second leaker is under federal investigation, specifically for passing along information on the US government's terrorist watch list that became the basis for a major story in The Intercept on Aug. 5.

Isikoff reports that "The FBI recently executed a search" of the home of "an employee of a federal contracting firm," while "federal prosecutors in Northern Virginia have opened up a criminal investigation into the matter" of the alleged leaks. One source told Isikoff that investigators are pursuing the case, "but are not ready to charge yet."
