NEW: “Look around the room”: Sarah Sanders slams media for classified leaks http://washex.am/2nZGOEy
washingtonexaminer.com reports: White House press secretary Sarah Sanders accused reporters on Monday of recklessly publishing classified information, while defending the approval of an interim security clearance for former Trump aide Rob Porter, who resigned last week amid allegations of domestic abuse.
“I think we’re doing every step we can to protect classified information. If you guys have real concerns about leaking classified information, look around the room,” Sanders said during the daily briefing. “If anyone is publishing, or putting out publicly, classified information, it’s members of the press.”
Sanders said the media has repeatedly “leaked” classified information provided by sources on Capitol Hill, a move that “put[s] national security at risk.”
