House Intelligence Committee Chair: Leakers of Flynn Call ‘Belong in Jail’

Breitbart: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said Tuesday that those who leaked the contents of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s phone calls “belong in jail.”

“That’s nine leakers that all belong in jail,” Nunes said. “Those nine people broke the law, clearly, by leaking classified information to anybody.”

Flynn resigned late Monday night, after a Washington Post report on Feb. 9 said he had privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with a Russian ambassador during phone calls in December — despite assertions by Trump officials, including the vice president, that he had never done so.

The Post’s report cited nine anonymous current and former officials “who were in senior positions at multiple agencies” who “had access to reports from U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies that routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats.”

“All of those officials said Flynn’s references to the election-related sanctions were explicit,” the report said.

Nunes said he also wanted to know how U.S. intelligence agencies were wiretapping Flynn’s calls, which he said may also have been illegal.

The chairman said there are only two ways that intelligence agencies can listen in on an American’s phone call — after obtaining a warrant, or inadvertently, such as in the case of Flynn speaking with a foreign official being spied on, which the report suggests was the case.

Nunes said “it’s pretty clear” that there was no warrant.    MORE

  1. No way Trump lets these weasels settle back down in their burrows, right? Life must be made hard for them. They have sacrificed nothing for their cause. Take their jobs at the very least and their freedom if warranted. These are nit heroes we are talking about. Get busy, Chairman Nunes.

  2. No. They “deserve” to be hanged by the neck, until dead.

    A shame we don’t take treason seriously any more.

    Julius and Ethel got off easy.

    izlamo delenda est …

  3. If you take the traitorous bastards out of their office in hand/belly/ankle chains, have the sons of bitches tried and hung, it will have a dampening effect on the little Hitlers who infest the Government agencies that think they know it all better than the people that hired them.
    Good hunting. I will postpone all activities to watch the coverage of their hangings.
