Jackson Cosko, the Democrat intern accused of sharing the home addresses and private phone numbers of three Republican senators, is not getting away with anything. In fact, he’s potentially facing a very harsh penalty.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Staffer who ‘doxed’ GOP senators faces nearly 50 years in federal prison
The former Democratic congressional staffer who posted personal information about Republican senators online faces nearly 50 years in prison.
Jackson Cosko, a 27-year-old Washington, D.C., resident, was arrested Wednesday by U.S. Capitol Police when he was caught sneaking into the offices of Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., after 10 p.m. Tuesday and using an aide’s computer and log-in.
He was charged with five federal offenses: making public restricted personal information, making threats in interstate commerce, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, and witness tampering.
The criminal complaint against him also charges him with second-degree burglary and unlawful entry, which are both criminal offenses in D.C.
Cosko appeared Thursday afternoon before Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, who ordered him detained pending a Tuesday hearing.
Why have so many young people thrown their careers and lives away to aid the so-called resistance? They might think it was the right thing to do now, but they will eventually regret it.
