Due to U.S. intelligence leaks, the United Kingdom has suspended all intelligence-sharing with the U.S. on the Manchester bombing.
CNN reported Thursday that UK intelligence services have halted intelligence-sharing with the United States related to the Manchester bombing, due to leaks from their U.S. counterparts.
“There’s a lot of frustration here from UK officials who can’t quite understand why photographs of the crime scene, of the very sensitive details of the bomb, and more so the name of the bomber, why these informations are being released by U.S. officials,” CNN reporter Clarissa Ward said.
“There is an understanding that the U.S. has a sort of rather large national intelligence bureaucracy, and that potentially it’s not high-level officials but lower-level officials who are leaking this information,” she continued.
Various political figures and government officials in the United Kingdom have called for a stop to leaks from the United States, but that request went unheeded as details of the bombing ended up in American media reports.
Liberals still blamed Trump for the development.

Tanden, whom former DNC Chair Howard Dean endorsed with a retweet, seemed to be thankful for leaks coming out of the White House earlier this month when she proposed criminal charges for Trump based on leaked information.
