It is a significant story. One that certainly has national security implications.
There's new fallout from intelligence leaks that occurred last summer - the unauthorized release of sensitive information from what is likely to be the highest level of our government.
There are reports now that the FBI and the Department of Justice are looking into the leak of President Obama's order launching cyber attacks on the Iranian nuclear program which used a computer virus developed by Israel.
By all accounts, the cyber attacks were successful. But the leaking of the information raises serious concerns about our national security. The key questions remain: Who leaked the information and why?
The investigation is reportedly looking at email accounts and phone records - and it's reported that investigators are looking at those who work at the highest level of government - those who would have had access to this very sensitive information.
I discussed the issue today on America Live on FOX News and made it clear that this is a very significant issue with serious implications.
The fact is that the White House and top government officials need to cooperate in this probe. Investigators need to get to the bottom of what happened and why.
It's important to remember that these top government officials and advisors are all required, as a condition of employment, to sign documents agreeing to protect confidential information and not disclose it.
The FBI needs to fast track this investigation. It's important to find out who is responsible for this leak. And, the Justice Department needs to prosecute those responsible to fullest extent of the law. Without delay. There must be a "no tolerance" policy when it comes to leaking confidential information concerning our national security.
Fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee accomplished one thing: With his testimony, Comey’s case against President Trump collapsed like a house of cards. Not only did Comey’s testimony clear President Trump – admitting under oath that the President was...
Former FBI Director James Comey is preparing to tell his side of the story before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday regarding his encounter with President Trump. His prepared remarks were released today – and make no mistake about it – this is Comey’s opportunity to get back in the...
President Donald Trump has just fired FBI Director James Comey. President Trump’s letter states that Comey is “not able to effectively lead the Bureau.” President Trump's action is not only appropriate, but represents the correct action taken against Comey who has become a renegade FBI Director.
There is a ruthless, coordinated attempt by those on the Left – in Congress, in the mainstream media, and in the bureaucracy – to undermine and undercut President Trump. First it’s a leak. Then a deceptive smear. And finally an all-out assault intended to hinder and even remove from office senior...
