Trump Administration Won’t Say How A Random CBP Agent Would Know Of A
Reporter’s Personal Travel

The Justice Department says an apparent Customs and Border Protection
agent identified as Jeffrey Rambo was not involved in its leak
investigation.

President Donald Trump’s administration is refusing to explain how and
why Jeffrey Rambo, apparently a random U.S. Customs and Border
Protection agent, may have known about a reporter’s personal travel —
or whether he was authorized to access that information at all.

In June 2017, Rambo, whose official role CBP also refuses to explain,
contacted national security reporter Ali Watkins, identified himself
as a government agent and implied that he could be a source, according
to The Washington Post. But when they met, he grilled her about her
work and her personal life, noting the dates and locations of
international trips she took with James Wolfe, then the director of
security for the Senate Intelligence Committee, whom she was dating.
Rambo didn’t give Watkins his name, but he mentioned that the Trump
administration was aggressively investigating journalists and their
sources.
