Well, at least we've rid the government of 2 leakers, Reality Winner and James Comey. Thank God for that.
I agree with the sentiment , not the last sentence.
One person's "leaker" is another's "whistle-blower".
True, but in this case they're both just pathetic leakers.
Winner, had a bigger agenda , to hurt this country..
They haven't released, what that was, at this point.. classified!
Comey, is a small child that threw a temper tantrum because he was fired. As FBI Director he was stunned, confused, afraid, stomach was queasy... what a guy!
I have tapes..
Do we know what winner leaked?
Secret NSA documents
But, like, what kind.
It doesn't matter to some people, but to me it does.
Granted, she still leaked info, just trying to gauge how wrong I feel it was.
According to the paper that reported it the documents lay out how Russians hacked voting machine vendors. As far as on going controversies not a lot has been cleared up.
That doesn't seem nearly as bad as, for example, the names of covert operatives abroad.
In fact, that seems like something that should be known.
Granted, it wasn't her right to make it known, but Jesus, our government has a severe complex when it comes to secrecy.
Nothing that hasn't already been reported in the media. Pretty stupid hill to die on.
Yes, I agree.
Yeah, let's get rid of the people who are trying to keep America from doing something illegal.
That's what I said. Good riddance to the leakers.
Why do you hate America?
I love America. That's why I want to get rid of the leakers. I hope Comey will be prosecuted for leaking classified documents for political reasons.
The information wasn't classified. Facts matter.
Yes, it was classified. Facts matter.
Wrong. The memo was his personal notes regarding the conversation. Not classified information. In addition, it was given to his law professor friend after Trump's tape tweet and after he was fired.
Wrong. The "memos" were written on government classified laptops on government time. They are the property of the government. Whether he was employed at the time or his reason for releasing them has no relevance.
Rape in the privacy of your own house is still illegal.
Ebola1 It doesn't seem you actually know how classification works. Writing something on a classified system does not make it classified the content is what matters.
And making an illegal action classified doesn't make it legal. Or acceptable.
No so Blue, you need to check your facts and Suppressed, there is no evidence of illegal activity.
Not a shred of evidence of illegal activity after all these months!
Ebola1 you need to check your "facts" because I have actual experience with classification and your claims are just not the case.
Is it illegal to leak government documents to the press?
It depends on the circumstances such as on the classification, which is determined by the content of the documents not how or when it was typed. It also depends on if what was released was a matter of public concern which is protected under the Constitution.
There was just a discussion on this in another poll and the law was quoted that conversations with the President in the Oval Office were classified. Are you saying that is not the case?
I was merely saying content matters when it comes to classification not how and when it was written. I assume you are talking about executive privilege. I have never dealt with presidential communications so I won't pretend to know the ins and outs of it. I assume it also depends on what was being discussed. Such as a civilian meeting the President I assume can tell everyone what they discussed as it most likely was small talk and not about possible classified information.
What a weasel. Now subpoena his stupid friend for helping leak sensitive information and Loretta Lynch for obstructing the Hillary investigation. I hope James Comey has good body guards.
Winners case is at least clear cut, that little twit is going to jail. Comey will probably get a book deal.
