The liberal media has been a willing accomplice in the leaking of classified information from the Trump administration, but that’s about to come to an end.
On Friday, Attorney General Sessions held a press conference with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates, and they promised to put an end to the leaking one way or another. Of course, they said they’d be going after leakers within the government, but the anti-American leftists in the media are about to get a massive wakeup call as well.
From the Daily Caller:
“In the first six months of this administration, DOJ has already received nearly as many criminal referrals involving unauthorized disclosures of classified information as we received in the last three years combined,” Sessions said.
The attorney general said that the DOJ has tripled investigations into these leaks, adding he has “listened to career investigators and prosecutors about how to most successfully investigate and prosecute these matters.”
“At their suggestion, one of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas.”
“We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance their role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in our intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law abiding Americans,” the attorney general continued.
In other words, the First Amendment is only going to protect them so much. When they’re publishing national security issues and things that place lives in danger, their protections end and they become criminally liable.
So grab your popcorn, because we’re about to finally see the liberal media squirm!
