Trump Promises to Identify, Prosecute Leak Culprits After U.K. Concern
From Free Beacon by C.F. Lehman
President Donald Trump on Thursday morning met with leaders of NATO and spoke out about the on-going problem of illegal intelligence leaks. Trump promised in a statement to launch an investigation led by the Justice Department into the matter and prosecute all culprits "to the fullest extent of the law."
Trump's statement was likely a response to the British government condemning U.S. intelligence for leaking lassified information about the terrorist attack in Manchester. The name of the attacker and photos of the crime scene were allegedly leaked to the press after being passed to the U.S. by British investigators.
British Prime Minister Theresa May publicly warned Trump that "intelligence that is shared between law enforcement agencies must be shared securely."
