Acting DHS Head Under Investigation For Leaking ICE Raid Details

Acting DHS Head Kevin McAleenan is now under federal investigation for the leak of confidential information about the ICE raids in June, the Washington Examiner reports:

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is at the center of a federal investigation into the leak of confidential government information in late June that forced Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to call off a nationwide operation, three senior administration officials told the Washington Examiner.

Following the publishing of sensitive leaked law enforcement information on June 21, then-acting ICE Director Mark Morgan’s team followed department protocol and reported the incident to the ICE Joint Intake Center so they could investigate. JIC is an agency office that handles internal investigations of personnel misconduct, sexual abuse, staff neglect, or violations of responsibilities that may have contributed to such incidents.

“There is an ongoing investigation. An internal investigation has been launched,” one official said in a phone call Friday.

This is a bombshell, and sure to rock D.C. Leaking details designed to thwart the President and his policies is a big deal and McAleenan needs to go TODAY!

The Examiner points out that this is NOT a criminal investigation, at least not yet:

The investigation, which is not a criminal probe, is centered around the leader of the department’s 240,000 employees, as well as at least one aide, for possible involvement in the leak.

ICE did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It’s not clear if JIC has referred the matter to the DHS Office of the Inspector General.


“Any investigation into the malicious, unauthorized disclosure of the operations is completely justified. Any causal observer would logically deduce that McAleenan’s dodgy response and coy behavior warrant additional scrutiny,” a second senior official said late Thursday.

A third official said the department’s decision to pursue the investigation of the acting secretary in itself was “very troubling.

“It’s worrisome that it took days for the acting secretary to acknowledge and then deny the allegations, and it’s telling that he didn’t call for the investigation in the first place. More than anything, it’s unfortunate that people are even having this discussion at all,” the official wrote in a text.

This is a REALLY big deal and we’ll update you as we know more.
