The Attorney General is ramping up efforts to smoke out the leakers
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a press conference about intelligence leaks on Friday that the Department of Justice was reviewing its policies on subpoenas for media outlets.
“I’ve listened to our career investigators, FBI agents and others, and our prosecutors about how to most successfully investigate these matters,” Sessions said. “At their suggestion, one of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas.”
“We respect the role the press plays, and we’ll give them respect, but it is not unlimited,” he added. “They cannot place lives at risk at impunity.”
The Trump administration has been rocked by leaks in its first 6 months, and the president has made it a law enforcement priority to root out those doing the damage.
“We must balance the press’s role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law abiding Americans,” Sessions said.
