After leaks strain U.S.-UK relationship, Trump and Sessions vow to find the culprits

It will only take prosecuting a few leakers to send the message it will no longer be tolerated

(National SentinelIntelligence: As we noted earlier this week, based on an exclusive report from One America News Network, President Donald J. Trump is set to fire at least three people within the White House who are allegedly behind at least some of the highly damaging leaks of classified information that has dogged the Oval Office.

Now, after the British made the unprecedented decision to suspend intelligence-sharing with the U.S. following leaks of sensitive information regarding the Manchester bombing – an investigation that is vitally important to the national security of the United Kingdom – that were irresponsibly published by American media, the Trump administration will go after other leakers with both barrels.

As reported by Lifezette, Trump has assured the British government that not only is it America’s top ally, but that his administration is set to declare war on the leakers within the Deep State who have sought to undermine him since before he was inaugurated.

“The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling,” Trump said in a statement. “These leaks have been going on for a long time, and my administration will get to the bottom of this. The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security. I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

To which Attorney General Jeff Sessions added: “These leaks cannot be tolerated, and we will make every effort to put an end to it.”

The main media culprit this time is a regular intelligence compromiser – The New York Times, whose Trump-hating editors have decided that any risk to our security is worth taking if it makes the president look bad. Lifezette:

The Times, thanks to U.S. intel leakers, identified Salman Abedi as the Manchester attacker and showed pictures of his backpack. The story had details about the bomb. It also printed the location of where Abedi’s torso ended up.

Twenty-two people were killed in the attack after an Ariana Grande concert at the arena, where Abedi approached a lobby area where he would not have to pass through. As people exited, Abedi detonated the bomb, which was full of nuts and bolts for extra deadly impact.

Former Justice Department officials believe it is high time for the Trump administration to telegraph a message: You leak, you pay.

“If we start to punish, other people will get the message,” said Ron Hosko, a former assistant director of the FBI, speaking to Neil Cavuto Thursday on Fox News.

As we have stated, we believe the media should share some liability for publishing information that is directly related to national security. The public does not have a “right to know” sensitive information that, if leaked and publicized, puts Americans at risk, period.
