Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, had some harsh words for those leaking information from the White House on Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos, he called for the leakers to be “handcuffed.”
From The Daily Caller:
“I want to see that this person is prosecuted. I think the president makes a very good point. No matter who is in the White House, you cannot have the type of leaking of information, sources, methods, classified information,” he said. “I don’t care who it is, Democrat or Republican, you cannot have that happen. So, not only do you need to wall them off, you probably ought to put handcuffs on them and put them in jail.”
The representative is scheduled to speak with former FBI Director James Comey on Monday in reference to an ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
