Trump asks Justice Department to investigate intelligence leaks

Via Billy


President Trump vowed on Thursday to investigate "alleged leaks" just hours after the United Kingdom said it had stopped sharing intelligence with the U.S. related to the Manchester terror attack, over fears that information might also be leaked.

"The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling," Trump said in a statement circulated by the White House. "These leaks have been going on for a long time and my administration will get to the bottom of this."

"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," Trump said. "There is no relationship we cherish more than the special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom."
