IT’S ABOUT TIME SESSIONS DID THIS. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THE PEOPLE WHO BREAK THAT LAW AND LEAK CLASSIFIED MATERIAL ARE HELD TO ACCOUNT OR ELSE OUR NATIONS SECRETS WILL BE USED AGAINST US.
Continuing an unprecedented wave of leaks just seven months into President Donald Trump’s administration, the mainstream media remains committed to publishing highly classified information in order to derail Trump White House.
The Washington Post this week published the classified transcripts of Trump’s phone conversations from the Oval Office with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in early January.
The Post published the report on Thursday, laying out in detail the full conversation Trump had with both world leaders on highly secretive issues.
In one exchange, Trump and Nieto discussed the wall that will be built along the southern border between Mexico and the U.S..
“Because you and I are both at a point now where we are both saying we are not to pay for the wall. From a political standpoint, that is what we will say. We cannot say that anymore because if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that,’ Trump reportedly said to Nieto.
As usual, The Washington Post didn’t name its sources and knowingly published classified information in order to harm the Trump administration.
Joe diGenova, a former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, told Fox News that the person(s) responsible for leaking the classified transcripts to the media violated federal law.
“The unauthorized release of these documents to the press is a crime.” diGenova said. “The series of acts involving release of notes of the president’s conversations with foreign leaders, and these transcripts, are a serious threat to national security.”
Other prosecutors agreed.
“There is a federal statute that makes it a crime, a federal crime, to disseminate classified information to an unauthorized person,” Doug Burns, a former federal prosecutor in New York, said in a phone interview with Fox News. READ MORE @ CONSERVATIVE TRIBUNE
