VIDEO: Sheila Jackson Lee Responds to Doxxing Charges

UPDATE: 10/5/18 -- Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is speaking out about the arrest of a former intern charged with illegally sharing the personal information of Republican lawmakers.

"My office, and myself, are fulling cooperating with law enforcement in their thorough investigation and prosecution of this matter."

27-year-old Jackson Cosko was arraigned Thursday on five federal counts for allegedly publishing the personal cell phone numbers and addresses of GOP Senators Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Mike Lee.

(Houston, Texas) 10/4/18 -- U.S. Capitol Police arrested a former staffer from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee's office, accusing him of "doxxing" Republican senators during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. 

Investigators say 27-year old Jackson Cosko illegally published the private information of South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and Utah Senators Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee online. 

Cosko is scheduled to appear in federal court today. 

According to the Washington Times, he was listed last month as a staff contact for the Houston Congresswoman, but her chief of staff says he was fired.  Jackson Lee's office has not commented further.  Online records have Cosko listed as a legislative correspondent for New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan.

Jackson Lee has been an outspoken critic of the Supreme Court nominee and sat in on last week's hearing.  She also caused a stir when she was seen handing a note to a lawyer representing Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
