A bombshell report just released by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs details how an explosive uptick in leaks of classified information during the Trump Administration has been extremely dangerous to our national security.
The report, “State Secrets: How an Avalanche of Media Leaks is Harming National Security,” provides shocking details about how dangerous and extensive these national security leaks have been.
In the first 126 days of the Trump Administration there were 125 leaked stories from within the deep state shadow government that were “potentially damaging to national security.” That’s a leak a day.
Compared with the first days of the Bush and Obama administrations, the total of combined leaks in both administrations in the same period was only 36 leaks. We knew the leaks were bad, but this is beyond the pale. It’s quite frankly astonishing and extremely dangerous to our national security.
