WH: Media puts national security at risk by publishing classified info

Source: The Hill




BY JONATHAN EASLEY - 02/12/18 04:34 PM EST

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday accused reporters of putting national security at risk by publishing classified information.

Revelations that former staff secretary Rob Porter received an interim security clearance despite an FBI investigation that turned up allegations of past spousal abuse has led to questions about who at the White House is handling sensitive information.

But Sanders suggested the media is feigning its concern about the handling of top secret information within the White House, while at the same time putting national security at risk by publishing leaked information from intelligence sources.

“We're taking every step we can to protect classified information,” Sanders said. “Frankly, if you guys have such concern about leaking classified information, there's plenty of it that has leaked out of the Hill, out of other communities, well beyond the White House walls. If you guys have real concerns about leaking out classified information, look around this room. You’re the ones that publish classified information and put national security at risk. That doesn't come from this White House.”

3. This white house isn't concerned with security,

since Putin already has his PDB each day, well before the end of Dotard's 'executive time'.

8. Oh sure, the GOP is all about "national security".

The Nunes memo, Trump talking with Russian operatives ALONE in the Oval Office. The number of times the Trump White House has jeopardized national security is astounding. Then there's the Bush White House. Lying us into a war in Iraq, outing an active CIA agent working on counter-terrorism, saying she was "fair game" in their efforts to justify claims of WMDs in Iraq.

Yeah, tell me all about the GOP's concern for national security. Their concern only extends far enough to cover their own lies, and after that everything is "fair game".

I don't think so. I will take their word over yours.
