The truth will eventually come out. What do we do when it does?
President Trump has vowed to hunt down whoever is leaking classified information about him and his team, and if he succeeds in unmasking the sources of illegal disclosures, they could face hard time.
…“The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy,” Trump tweeted this week. “Very un-American!”
…Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., have written to the Department of Justice Inspector General requesting an official probe into how classified information has been handled.
“The release of classified information can, by definition, have grave effects on national security,” Chaffetz wrote in the letter.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington. said national security is at risk. Any leakers who are exposed could face serious time in prison.
…“They [the penalties] can be pretty serious,” said Dupree “There are a number of provisions in the federal, criminal statutes – Title 18 and elsewhere – that provide everything from fines, to even jail time, for people who leak classified, highly sensitive, national security information.” —Fox News
Considering Rex Tillerson just fired the entire ‘Shadow Government’ for their dishonest behavior / Obstruction of justice, some Old Guard loyalists must be soiling their shorts.
‘Misbehavior’ that was rewarded and even encouraged in the OLD administration is not tolerated any longer. Actions have consequences… some of them criminal.
Jay Sekulow added another wrinkle to this conversation. Seventeen days before leaving office, Obama changed the rules for who gets the raw data. WHY did he (and Loretta Lynch) do that, and why THEN?
We need a real deterrent for people in positions of trust engaging in these criminal acts.
