These are very serious leaks that are exposing U.S. intelligence gathering methods and that could involve an intentional effort to undermine an official whose views are quite contrary to those of Obama administration officials.
From the Washington Examiner:
House and Senate Republicans are following President Trump’s lead by demanding investigations into the damaging leaks that have been pouring out of the federal government since President Trump took office.
Leaks that exposed former national security adviser Mike Flynn’s phone call to the Russian ambassador in December, as well as conversations between Trump and foreign leaders, have frustrated Trump in his first few weeks in office. When Democrats pounced and said further investigations into the White House are warranted, Trump said the “real” issue is the leaks themselves.
“The real story here is why there are so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington,” Trump tweeted.
Republicans in Congress made it clear they are ready to oblige. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is drafting a letter to the FBI that will ask the bureau investigate the leaks.
