GENERAL PLEADS GUILTY TO LYING TO FBI
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
In a bombshell development that could impact this year's presidential election, a retired Marine four-star general has admitted he lied to the FBI in an official investigation.
James "Hoss" Cartwright, who was once called "Obama's favorite general," stood before a judge in U.S. Federal Court Washington, bowed his head in shame, and in a chastened voice, told the court: "It was wrong for me to mislead the FBI. I accept full responsibility for my actions."
He had been charged with making false statements during a federal investigation into a leak of classified information. The general deliberately deceived investigators when he denied he was the source of classified information contained in a book by New York TIMES reporter David Sanger.
The journalist focused in CONFRONT AND CONCEAL on a covert cyber attack on Iran's nuclear facilities and the use of a computer virus called Stuxnet to temporarily disable centrifuges the Iranians were using to enrich uranium.
ONCE HE WAS ON TOP
How far the once-mighty have fallen. We urge our readers to be sure to check out our related stories box below. Over the years, we at MilitaryCorruption.com have chronicled Cartwright's escapades, including accusations he had intimate relations with a female aide and ran his mouth about U.S. security issues while drunk on an official military mission to Moscow.
Political observers say the Cartwright troubles come at a strange time, just three weeks before the election. The last thing Team Hillary needs is a reminder to the public that two generals - Cartwright and David Petraeus - were prosecuted and punished for crimes that compare with the former secretary of state's endangering our national security by illegally maintaining a private computer server.
Under the plea agreement, Cartwright faces a possible six-month jail term when he is sentenced January 17 of next year. Whether he ends up behind bars or not, it has been a meteoric fall for a mighty general who once held the second most powerful position in the United States military at the Pentagon - vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Will the voters wonder why "Hoss" gets slammed for his lies, while the biggest liar in U. S politics - Hillary Clinton - got a free pass from FBI Director James Comey? We'll find that out November 8th.
