Sting Operation reveals D.C.'s Renegade Tweeter

We are learning new details about the White House staffer who was busted for tweeting insider information and slinging vicious insults at his colleagues.

It turns out some of President Obama's top advisers set up a sting operation to catch the rogue tweeter.

Jofi Joseph was a staffer with the National Security Council when he was busted.

His tweets, which went on for two years, ranged from political attacks like:

"Come on Republicans. Don't disappoint me. This Hillary "concussion" is awfully convenient, eh, with Benghazi testimony next week, no?"

To just plain mean:

"Was Huma Abedin wearing beer goggles the night she met Anthony Weiner?"

David Nakamura is a reporter with the Washington Post. He broke the story today.
