DC: A former Senate aide charged with doxxing Republican senators and extorting a witness comes from an elite family with ties to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

Prosecutors signaled Tuesday that they might give the aide, Jackson Cosko, a plea deal that would prevent the facts of the case from ever being learned publicly.

During Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s September 2018 confirmation hearing, Cosko — a former IT aide who once managed Democratic New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan’s office computer accounts — allegedly posted to Wikipedia the home addresses of Republican senators who supported the Supreme Court justice.

“I own EVERYTHING,” Cosko told a Hassan aide who caught him in the act, according to prosecutors. “If you tell anyone I will leak it all. Emails signal conversations gmails.”

Information revealed in court since then suggested that might not have been a bluff. U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan on Jan. 24 said Cosko allegedly possessed terabytes of information, including Senate data so sensitive that it could not be discussed in open court.

“He downloaded more information than was originally understood. There is no combination of conditions that could ensure the safety of the community,” Hogan said in December 2018.

Prosecutors underscored that he was a flight risk and that they had concerns he would engage in obstruction of justice.

Cosko — a supporter of Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders — is the son of an enormously wealthy and politically connected California family with ties to Feinstein. Republicans suggested the California Democrat leaked a letter soon before Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing that alleged the Supreme Court justice sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford.  read more


  1. Are you suggesting that a Senator of the US serving America on the highly sensitive Intelligence Committee would stoop to encouraging the wholesale theft of personal data on other Senators as though the data might be used in extortion, blackmail, or political pressure?

    How does the guy even know what data to grab, or how and where it is stored? Just lucky? That’s it! He just stumbled on it.

  2. Since the DOJ and FBI are staffed primarily by democrats, why would they let the sting of truth get out?? “”Where are those fill in the blank immunity deal forms??””

  3. Huh? A “connected” IT guy?
    Who woulda thunk it?
    I figured it was the charwoman who takes out the trash every night, just ran across it!

    Gaius Caligula made his horse a Senator – and in Feinstein we have the horse’s ass.
    And America is trying desperately to imitate Rome’s more sordid history.

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. Is this the same senator from the Intelligence Committee that had a Chinese spy on her payroll?
    Does this qualify as artificial intelligence?

  5. So this bastard can hold the government hostage? What’s stopping him from dumping the info later on? Who else is in cahoots with him? Super max his ass away from all computers.

  6. This bad penny will turn up again, doing the same shit somewhere else, unless AG Barr steps in. Seth Rich is gunned down in the street, and this pencil-necked crook walks free.

    A hundred times worse than Reality Winner and he beats the rap. Oh, he’s a rich white male and she’s a white trash female. That explains it.

  7. feinstein should be barred form entering government buildings.

    I was writing about this earlier today, and wanted to check a few references. I used dudduckgo. At the top of the list was IOTW. I searched for information, not author or site.
    Just though I’d pass that on. Maybe this place is getting legitimacy.
    This guy should be hanging upside down in a dungeon somewhere.
    He is the son of greg cosko, a close business associate of feinstein’s husband, richard c. blum.
    That is the same feinstein that had a chinese spy as her office manager
    No wonder they emptied the courtroom to talk about him.
    It appears that the doxxer daddy’s construction firm teamed up with another firm to build the Salesforce Tower/ Transit Center in SF. That’s the building with the 2 structural cracks. Big time problem there. That firm also appears to be tied into the building of the adjacent Millennium Tower- that’s the building that is leaning.
    He is yet another appendage of the fungus that is in our government. And feinstein has a lot to do with it.
    A whole lot.
    If wolfe (who previously worked for feinstein) got only 2 months jail time, this guy will get off to. He’ll jump the turnstile of the justice system, just like the clintons and obamas. Just like wolfe, he knows too much to punish appropriately.
    please tie him in to the awans and their take over of the House computers.
    Too big to prosecute? It is just about the whole frggin’ government.

  8. I wonder when Trump (he does run the joint right?) gets on the phone and tells his new AG that there are no deals and the little fuck ends up doing very serious time in the Colorado SuperMax because someone with his contacts, resources and skillset can’t be allowed near the outside world. Let the little fucker rot in there and let daddy drop the maximum monthly amount into his kids’ prison canteen account.
