Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ future has been great for the rumor mill.
What would be his next move?
Sessions made an announcement that left everyone speechless.
The Trump administration has been under siege from Deep State operatives illegally leaking classified information to the press.
In the first 125 days of the Trump administration there were 126 national security leaks.
Lives are being put in danger so the media and Washington establishment can stage a silent coup against Donald Trump.
Attorney General Sessions – after criticism from Trump that he wasn’t being aggressive enough in going after leakers – held a press conference where he announced the Department of Justice was aggressively pursuing leak investigations and that four people had already been charged with leaking classified information.
USA Today reports:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a broad crackdown on unauthorized disclosures of classified information Friday, warning both would-be leakers and the media as he demanded that the “culture of leaking must stop.”
Referring to an “explosion” of leaks since January, Sessions said the Justice Department has “more than tripled” the number of active leak investigations compared to the number pending at the end of the Obama administration.
Justice has already received nearly as many criminal referrals involving unauthorized disclosures of classified information than in the previous three years combined, Sessions said.
“I have this warning for would-be leakers: Don’t do it,” Sessions said. “I strongly agree with the president and condemn in the strongest terms the staggering number of leaks,” he said.”
Trump responded by applauding the announcement.
After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the A.G. taking action! For National Security, the tougher the better!

The crimes also hurt American national security and hurt the ability of the President to do his job.
Attorney General Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats made that clear.
USA Today also reports:
“Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, who also condemned the unauthorized disclosures, appeared together a day after The Washington Post published complete transcripts of Trump’s first calls with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
“No government can be effective when its leaders cannot discuss sensitive matters in confidence or to talk freely in confidence with foreign leaders,” the attorney general said.
Coats, meanwhile, characterized the steady stream of disclosures during the last several years as “the worst compromise of classified information in the nation’s history.”
“Let me be absolutely clear,” Coats said, “these disclosures have resulted in a major threat to our national security.”
Coats said the information has given adversaries an intelligence advantage while exacting monetary costs to “compensate for blown (intelligence) programs.”
Trump supporters were thrilled to see the administration adopt an aggressive posture toward Deep State leakers.
These leaks aren’t meant to inform the public or blow the whistle on unethical behavior.
The media and Deep State are colluding to drive Trump from office and steal Democracy from the American people by nullifying the results of the election.
