Susan Rice Agrees With President Trump That Leaks Are “Very Concerning”

“These leaks are very concerning,” Rice told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos during an interview on Sunday.

Susan Rice, former national security advisor to President Obama, told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that she finds the leaking of classified intelligence “very concerning” during an interview on Sunday.

Stephanopoulos asked Rice how serious leaks from the intelligence community are, and what can be done to stop them. Stephanopoulos noted that President Trump has been upset with leaks for some time, and the United Kingdom briefly halted its intelligence sharing with the United States because of leaks after the Manchester attack.

“These leaks are very concerning,” Rice told Stephanopoulos.

Rice continued, “we are able to work so closely and effectively with partners like the United Kingdom because they trust us and we trust them.”

“This is very concerning. I think Prime Minister May was correct to express concern to the president. The president is correct to express his outrage at this,” Rice concluded. “It is incumbent on the administration, as well as our state and local law enforcement, to hold carefully and closely confidential, classified information.”
