The Young Turks (4/2/19)
“The FBI appears to have an active criminal probe into hoaxer Jacob Wohl‘s private intel agency Surefire Intelligence.
The Young Turks journalist Ken Klippenstein recently filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to Surefire Intelligence. The FBI, however, declined to provide those records, and the excuse used by the law enforcement agency to justify their denial suggests a criminal probe is currently underway.
“The FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the specific records you seek as mere acknowledgment of such existence would trigger harm to the interests protected under FOIA Exemption (b)(7)(A),” the FOIA denial letter reads. “Acknowledging the existence or non-existence of records could reasonably be expected to interfere with law enforcement proceedings.”
