Sessions announces hunt for leakers, says cases have ‘exploded’ | Fox News

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other top administration officials lashed out Friday against illegal leaks and issued a stern warning that offenders will be “held accountable,” announcing new efforts to hunt them down.   “No government can be effective when its members cannot speak in confidence” with other government leaders, Sessions said, referring specifically to the bombshell leak a day earlier of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders.  He said referrals of classified leaks from U.S. intelligence agencies have “exploded” this year. “We are taking a stand,” the attorney general said. “This culture of leaks must stop.”
