Sessions: “Culture of Leaking Must Stop”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is focusing his attention on leakers. Sessions held a press briefing today and highlighted the damage leaks do to the intelligence community saying that “no government can be effective when leaders can’t speak freely.” He announced that a task force has been implemented to go after leakers. He said four people have already been charged in connection with recent leaks. His comments come after a release of transcripts of President Trump’s phone calls with two foreign leaders.
