An employee working inside the United States Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network has been arrested following a DOJ investigation. She's now charged with disclosing banks’ ‘suspicious activity reports,’ according to reports.

The United States of America's Treasury Department is under the spotlight of the Department of Justice today, this time surrounding the “Russian” investigation.

This comes after the Attorney General announced criminal charges against Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, who allegedly stole “Suspicious Activity Reports” (SARs) related to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and a former Manafort associate, Rick Gates.

<span style="margin-top:15px;rgba(42,51,6,0.7);font-size:12px;"> Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards appears on her LinkedIn profile with Michael Sullivan, former interim director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.</span>

Edwards is reportedly a senior-level employee at the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network inside the FinCEN, who leaked compromising Russian investigation materials surrounding sensitive bank information to Buzzfeed.

The DOJ says that in a single day in August, Edwards "exchanged approximately 541 messages" with the reporter through an encrypted application.

The mainstream media has intentionally attempted to garnish information pertinent to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian meddling.

To date, no evidence has suggested that anyone from the Trump Campaign violated any laws during the 2016 elections.

Edwards has been released after she posted a $100,000 bond, and she will now be expected to appear for a November 2nd court date in the Southern District of New York.

Investigators say that Edwards stole 24,000 SARs on a department-issued thumb drive, where she then saved them to various folders.

As investigators looked into her devices, they found folders renamed to“Debacle – Operation-CF,” with subfolders named “asshat,” “debacle,” and “emails.”

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), and Eric M. Thorson, Inspector General for the Department of Treasury announced the arrest.

United States Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said, “Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a senior-level FinCEN employee, allegedly betrayed her position of trust by repeatedly disclosing highly sensitive information contained in Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to an individual not authorized to receive them.”

“SARs, which are filed confidentially by banks and other financial institutions to alert law enforcement to potentially illegal transactions, are not public documents, and it is an independent federal crime to disclose them outside of one’s official duties,” Berman said.

“We hope today’s charges remind those in positions of trust within government agencies that the unlawful sharing of sensitive documents will not be tolerated and will be met with swift justice by this Office,” he added.

As for Edwards, she is now charged with one count of unauthorized disclosures of suspicious activity reports and one count of conspiracy to make unauthorized disclosures of suspicious activity reports.

The charges, of which carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison, could result in additional counts.

The Office’s Public Corruption Unit is handling this case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kimberly J. Ravener and Daniel C. Richenthal are in charge of the prosecution.

Buzzfeed ran six articles between October 17th and this last Monday which are implicit in the data leaked by Edwards, leading authorities to a hot trail of research to find those responsible.
