U.S. issues stern warning against 'staggering' leaks

"We are taking a stand". We will not allow rogue anonymous sources with security clearances to sell out our country.

The Justice Department earlier this year arrested one person they have accused of leaking classified information - Reality Winner, an Atlanta woman and federal contractor.

"Can you imagine being president of the United States, having a conversation with a foreign leader and that conversation being divulged to the media?" No one is entitled to surreptitiously fight their battles in the media by revealing sensitive government information.

"I have listened to career investigators and prosecutors about how to most successfully investigate and prosecute these matters".

"We respect the important role the press plays and will give them respect, but they can not place lives at risk with impunity", he said. They can not place lives at risk with impunity. "We must balance the press's role with protecting national security, the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the armed forces and all law-abiding Americans". "For the past several months we have made changes and are seriously ramping up our efforts".

Since January, Sessions said the Justice Department has "more than tripled" the number of active leak investigations compared to the number pending at the end of the Obama administration.

Daily Telegraph accidentally publishes story saying Prince Philip is dead
The Daily Telegraph accidentally reported that the Duke of Edinburgh died this morning when his obituary was published online. Jeremy Corbyn applauded his "clear sense of public duty" and Theresa May praised his "steadfast support" to the Queen.


Coats said he would also not hesitate to use his authority as national intelligence director to "deal with" people within the Intelligence Community who leak classified information. "Simultaneously, the Department is reviewing policies that impact leak investigations", he continued.

"I've listened to our career investigators, FBI agents...and our prosecutors about how to most successfully investigate and prosecute these matters", Sessions said. We will investigate and seek to bring criminals to justice. Unauthorized disclosures include leaks to the media as well as to foreign adversaries, Sessions said.

"From aggressively pursuing the leaking of classified information that puts innocent Americans at risk, to efforts that will secure our borders, to cracking on down on drugs and gangs, and especially being more supportive of local and national law enforcement, the DOJ under Jeff Sessions has been a breath of fresh air and he will make all Americans proud", said former Sen. "Let me be absolutely clear this morning, these disclosures pose a major threat to our national security".

"Understand this, if you improperly disclose classified information, we will find you, we will investigate you, and we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, and you will not be happy with the result".

Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" that "it's easier to figure out who's leaking than the leakers may realize".

President Donald Trump has criticised Mr Sessions as "very weak" on leaks.
