U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced that four people have officially been charged over leaks that have occurred against the Trump administration, this as they launch their crackdown on such issues.
As written by BBC.com:
Jeff Sessions said the suspects were accused of divulging classified material or concealed contacts with foreign intelligence officers.
America’s top prosecutor said the administration has tripled the number of active leak probes since January.
President Donald Trump has criticised Mr Sessions as “very weak” on leaks.
At Friday’s news conference, the attorney general said no government could be effective when its leaders could not talk freely in confidence with foreign leaders.
“I strongly agree with the president and condemn in the strongest terms the staggering number of leaks undermining the ability of our government to protect this country,” he told reporters.
