White House Staffers Suffer Steady Drumbeat of Illegal, Classified Leaks--Fed emplyees commit felonies
At Lifezette by
A group of career federal employees and national security officials have been whipped up into such a frenzy against President Donald Trump, they are committing felonies in leaking classified materials to outlets such as The Washington Post.
So says Joseph diGenova, who served as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia under President Ronald Reagan.
The leaks have recently scored their first target: Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the national security adviser, long targeted by the media and outgoing Democratic officials.
But it has not just been about Flynn. A Republican congressional staffer told LifeZette there is an uptick in damaging leaks, using highly classified material, since Trump was elected on Nov. 8.
