FBI Director James Comey said that leaks of classified information to the media had increased considerably since President Trump was inaugurated, during his testimony before the House Select Intelligence Committee on Monday.
“Leaks have always been a problem,” Comey told the panel. “I do think, in the last six weeks, couple of months, there’s been at least, apparently, a lot of conversation about classified matters that’s ending up in the media.”
Comey did say that a lot of what the media is reporting on is “dead wrong.”
“It does strike me that there’s been a lot of people talking, or at least reporters saying that people are talking to them, in ways that have struck me as unusually active,” Comey concluded.
