WHOA! Secretary Kelly Has HARSH Words For Leakers

Commenting on the recent Manchester bombing leaks, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly used the term “treason” to describe them,

From The Daily Caller:

“I believe when you leak the kind of information that seems to be routinely leaked – high, high level of classification… I think it’s darn close to treason,” Kelly declared.

He continued that after he saw the leaks, “I immediately called my counterpart in the UK. And after offering my condolences about the attack … She immediately brought this topic up.

And, if it came from the United States, it’s totally unacceptable. And I don’t know why people do these kind of things, but it’s borderline, if not over the line, of treason.”

Kelly’s comments come after the U.K. temporarily suspended Manchester bombing intelligence sharing with the U.S. Thursday after photos of the crime scene appeared in The New York Times.

British Prime Minister Theresa May considered the leak so serious that she said she would raise the matter with President Donald Trump to stress that information shared between the two allies must remain secret.

As reported here earlier on Sunday, three of the leakers have been identified. Reports are that they will be fired before the end of the long weekend.
