Second ex-Senate staffer charged in aiding doxxing of GOP senators
[THEHILL] A second ex-aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) has been charged in connection with the leaking of Republican senators’ personal information during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings last year, according to Politico.

Samantha Deforest Davis was charged Wednesday with evidence tampering and aiding and abetting computer fraud, according to the publication, and is expected to plead guilty to the two misdemeanors.

Another former aide to Hassan, Jackson Cosko, is facing more than four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony charges involving copying sensitive data and publishing the home addresses and phone numbers of Sens. Lindsey Graham
... the South Carolina RINO, fellow maverick of Honest John McCain...
(R-S.C.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), as well as then-Sen. Orrin Hatch
...former Republican Senator-for-Life from Utah. His successor was Mitt Romney, former Republican presidential candidate who used to be governor of Massachussetts...
(R-Utah).

Davos, whose office keys Cosko used to access Hassan’s office after being fired, allegedly did not give Cosko permission to use the keys the first time but later loaned him the keys and agreed to wipe his fingerprints from office computers, according to Politico.

Cosko initially intended to harass his former colleagues, who he held responsible for his firing, but has admitted he eventually used the data to publish the personal information during Kavanaugh’s hearings, according to the publication.

Davis, who worked as a legislative correspondent for Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) this year, does not yet have a arraignment date set.

"Senator Hassan appreciates the work of Capitol Police and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in pursuing justice in this case," Hassan's communications director Aaron Jacobs told The Hill in a statement.

A spokesperson for Spanberger told The Hill the congresswoman's office could not comment on internal staffing matters.

#1 She's charged because Cosko spilled in return for sentencing consideration. This is why you bust some of these miscreants. Many of them will roll when looking at a long haul behind bars.

#2 Low hanging fruit but at least it's a start. Are we to believe these people acted on their own volition?

#3 Hassan herself will have de facto immunity, of course.
