Investigative Journalist John Solomon's Laptop Stolen Night Before Impeachment Hearings?

Investigative Journalist John Solomon’s Laptop Stolen Night Before Impeachment Hearings?

February 3, 2020 – Paul Sperry, an investigative journalist for Real Clear Investigations is reporting that the laptop of investigative journalist John Solomon was stolen right before the Senate Impeachment hearings.

According to the article by Paul Sperry:

On the night before the Senate impeachment trial began, someone broke into veteran Washington investigative journalist John Solomon’s car, which was parked near the White House, and stole his laptop, according to a D.C. Metropolitan Police Department report obtained by RealClearInvestigations.

The computer contained notes on Ukraine and former Vice President Joe Biden and other sensitive information, Solomon said in an interview. He said he was preparing to launch a new podcast and news site at the time.

Though the laptop has since been recovered, the investigation is still open. “The case has been assigned a detective and is under investigation,’ MPD spokesman Sean Hickman told RCI.

The Secret Service is also involved in the matter, which appears suspicious. Break-ins are rare in the high-security area where the crime occurred, just outside the White House perimeter, and a sophisticated device appears to have been used to get into the vehicle.

In the early evening of Jan. 20, the police report states, Solomon’s Apple MacBook laptop and computer bag, valued at around $1,800, were stolen from his 2019 Toyota SUV parked at 1776 F St. NW, across from the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building. No windows were broken, and there were no other signs of forced entry. Authorities suspect the thief or thieves used an electronic jamming device to open the car door lock.

Solomon said that, other than the bag, nothing else was stolen from his car, including cash he used for the Metro.

The computer and bag, which also contained his U.S. Capitol press security badge, were discovered the next day nearly a block away from where his car had been parked. The contents of the bag had been dumped out on a picnic bench near the FDIC building. The location had no security cameras, so there is no known video surveillance footage that can be reviewed. Authorities described it as one of the few ‘dark spots’ in the area.

Solomon, who noted that an iPod was missing from his bag, says he is working with computer forensics experts to determine if any of his laptop information was exploited or if his hard drive was scanned within the period the laptop went missing. – Paul Sperry, Real Clear Investigations

This is highly disturbing. John Solomon has been the subject of a recent media smear campaign due to his very accurate reporting on the Spygate scandal. For the past three years, John Solomon has been reporting on the corruption and abuses of power of some of the most powerful members of government.

Those who have been following the posts of Anonymous internet whistleblower and alleged White House insider ‘QAnon’ will recall back in 2017 being told that both investigative journalists Sara Carter and John Solomon were being given protection. Here are the Q posts that mention John Solomon and Sara Carter:

This was our first hint from ‘Q’ that John and Sara are being given some kind of information about this from real inside sources. John and Sara later seem to corroborate this claim on the Sean Hannity program when they mentioned being approached by the members of the Intelligence Community who told them to keep digging.

So, ‘Q’ asked us to define protection, and then indicated that surveillance of SC/JS had been terminated and that they can sleep well. That was August 2019, the month Q said was HOT. After that post, John Solomon has his laptop stolen.

The Secret Service is said to be involved in the investigation into the theft of the laptop, and I’m sure everyone recalls one of the stories in 2017 about a laptop being stolen, involving the Secret Service.

That laptop was also stolen from a car, so perhaps there is a pattern here.

Kane of Citizen Free Press reports on the contents of Solomon’s laptop:

The computer contained notes on Ukraine and former Vice President Joe Biden and other sensitive information, Solomon, 52, said in an interview. He said he was preparing to launch a new podcast and news site at the time.

Though the laptop has since been recovered, the investigation is still open. ‘The case has been assigned a detective and is under investigation,’ MPD spokesman Sean Hickman told RCI.

The Secret Service is also involved in the matter, which appears suspicious. Break-ins are rare in the high-security area where the crime occurred, just outside the White House perimeter, and a sophisticated device appears to have been used to get into the vehicle.

The computer and bag, which also contained his U.S. Capitol press security badge, were discovered the next day nearly a block away from where his car had been parked. The contents of the bag had been dumped out on a picnic bench near the FDIC building. The location had no security cameras, so there is no known video surveillance footage that can be reviewed. Authorities described it as one of the few ‘dark spots’ in the area.

The break-in, which happened across from the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building, was described as a ‘professional job’ and authorities believe the individual used a sophisticated electronic jamming device to open the car’s lock.

‘It’s a pretty professional job,’ John Solomon told RCI of the break-in, ‘but it’s probably just a coincidence. It was probably just a street criminal searching for pass codes,’ he added. ‘Or it could be someone searching for my Ukraine stuff, we don’t know at this point.’ – Citizen Free Press

Is this theft just a coincidental to the Senate Impeachment hearings beginning the following day? Does the theft indicate perhaps that the perpetrator felt bold because ‘Q’ said John Solomon was no longer under surveillance? Hopefully, after a full forensic examination we will learn more.
