Former Director of US Intelligence: US Government is “Hemorrhaging” Classified Info

Former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte said that the federal government has been “hemorrhaging classified information,” adding that the problem extends back “a number of years.”

Negroponte’s comments came in the wake of reports leaking regarding surveillance of communications between Trump campaign members and Russian officials.

“People are giving out top secret information without any compunction, and I think that’s a problem and I think it’s got to be brought under control,” Negroponte said.

Negroponte expressed hope that the Trump administration would be able to plug the holes, “It’s something I hope the new administration gets under control.”
