President Donald Trump had a few choice words this morning for those behind recent leaks of classified information. In no uncertain terms, the president told leakers that their days are numbered.
Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years. Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 16, 2017
The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 16, 2017
Trump's crusade against leakers within the intel community comes after leaks to the media confirmed that former White House National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was not entirely forthcoming to Vice President Mike Pence as to the nature of his communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Although Trump accepted Flynn's resignation on Monday evening, recent reports suggest that the retired general did not commit a crime and is unlikely to face any criminal charges.
