CNN Forgets Pertinent Information ON Guy Who Doxxed Republican Senators

I bet CNN’s Sophie Turner, who wrote the story, wonders why Republicans call them fake news

Capitol Police arrest man suspected of ‘doxing’ lawmakers during Kavanaugh testimony

The US Capitol Police announced Wednesday that they had arrested a suspect for allegedly “doxing” — a form of publishing private identifying information online — lawmakers during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

“Earlier today, the United States Capitol Police (USCP) arrested the Suspect who allegedly posted private, identifying information (doxing) about one or more United States Senators to the internet,” said Eva Malecki, communications director for Capitol Police, in a statement.

According to the statement, the Capitol Police arrested 27-year-old Jackson Cosko of Washington on Wednesday.

Cosko has been charged with making restricted personal information public, making threats in interstate commerce, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft and obstruction of justice/witness tampering, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. He’s also facing charges of second-degree burglary and unlawful entry for incidents in Washington.

There’s only 4 more short paragraphs in the story, two of which are composed of one line each, none of which note

U.S. Capitol Police arrested Wednesday a former Democratic staffer suspected of posting the personal information of at least one United States senator to the internet. (snip)

Cosko has most recently worked as an intern for Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. He has also worked under Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and former California Sen. Barbara Boxer, according to Fox News.

Jackson Lee’s Chief of Staff Glenn Rushing told Politico that Cosko has been fired.

Cosko is a “Democratic Political Professional & Cybersecurity Graduate Student,” according to his LinkedIn page, which states that his job duties in the U.S. Senate included assisting senior staff “with issues before the Commerce Committee including technology, telecommunications, transportation; as well as with cybersecurity matters before the Homeland Security Committee.”

Strange that such relevant information is missing from the CNN article, eh? In fact, it’s the only article on Cosko, so, it’s not like CNN is mentioning this anywhere else. Nor is it even front page. Imagine had a Republican intern done this: the treatment would have be completely different.
