Jeff Sessions Announces Investigation into Leaks

SOON Attorney General Jeff Sessions will reveal information regarding the stepped-up efforts on leak investigations. Just hours after President Trumps attack on Sessions on his failure to investigate Democrat nominee Clinton… he demanded that crack down on leaks from intelligence agencies.

President Trumps announced that,”I want the attorney general to be much tougher on the leaks from intelligence agencies. These are intelligence agencies. We cannot have that happen.”

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci also commented when asked about Sessions investigation,”I wouldn’t say just the White House. He’s putting a plan together for the interagencies and I want to work very closely with him as the director of communications and I want to work with the other agencies and departments to get our message coordinated amongst ourselves and we want to uproot some of these leakers because, yes, I’m not naïve, I know that we’re never going to end all the leaking, I didn’t suggest that, but I want to put a culture in place where people trust each other.”

Sessions has been vocal about the situation and has vowed to close in on intelligences leaks for months making statements like: “these leaks cannot be tolerated” pledging to “make every effort to put an end to it.We have already initiated appropriate steps to address these rampant leaks that undermine our national security.”

So who should be worried? So far, at least one former government contractor has been charged with leaking classified information to a news outlet since President Trump took office. Some people are hoping that the strain between President Trump and Sessions will inevitably curtail these investigations so they can remain in the shadows. Sources say that Sessions wants to do his job and is moving forward cleaning house.

“I don’t think the President realizes it’s more important for Sessions to do what he believes is right than what (Trump) believes is in his best interest,” the source said. “(Sessions) will withstand a lot of negative comments and jabs by the President if he thinks he can do a good job of upholding law and serving people of the United States.”
