The White House has cracked down on a series of embarrassing leaks in recent weeks, with the US Attorney General announcing that four people had been charged following an investigation.
Four people have been charged over leaks as the Trump administration launches a crackdown on embarrassing disclosures, the US attorney general has said. Jeff Sessions said the administration has tripled the number of active leak investigations since the beginning of 2017. He said the suspects were accused of divulging classified material or concealed contacts with foreign intelligence officers.
Reality Leigh Winner, a contractor who drew headlines in June when prosecutors accused her of leaking classified information she had access to in her job. While Winner’s case involves a leak to the media, the other three that Sessions referenced involve alleged mishandling of secret information. The other defendants are Candace Marie Claiborne, a State Department employee from Virginia; Kevin Patrick Mallory, a contractor from Virginia; and Harold Thomas Martin III, a contractor from Maryland.
