Paul calls for jail time for leakers

“During an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) expressed deep concern about government surveillance and the intelligence community leaking information to the press. With discussion among conservatives shifting more and more towards the ‘deep state’ in recent weeks, Paul told host George Stephanopoulos that it’s known that the Obama administration spied on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. He was referring to transcripts of pre-inauguration phone calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador being discussed with the press, as the envoy was being surveilled by the U.S. Those calls led to Flynn’s resignation. ‘It is very, very important that whoever released that go to jail,’ Paul said. ‘Because you cannot have members of the intelligence community listening to the most private and highly classified information and then releasing that to The New York Times.'” (03/19/17)
