Seems sensible to me.
The level of leaks and selective reporting to try and take down the administration would seem to warrant such security.
Looks like the media can't get information so the new angle is... "We can't get illegal leaks from our sources - there must be a conspiracy!"
Do you not ever get tired of beating a dead horse???
The fact that you guys are 100% A-ok with trump having secret meetings with Putin and confiscating meeting notes just confirms that you've been brainwashed.

Well bully for you.
Meanwhile a perfectly normal state of affairs, created by the media as a big issue, has you running around calling others propagandists.
The minute all the leaks stopped now suddenly that proves hes up to something. The hypocrisy is funny. Originally it was the leaks were occurring because he couldn't control the information. I guess it just shows certain people will come up with any excuse to attack Trump.
The President has the Authority to classify anything.
Sec. 1.6 Limitations on Classification.
(a) In no case shall information be classified in order to conceal
violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error; to prevent
embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency; to restrain
competition; or to prevent or delay the release of information that does
not require protection in the interest of national security. (b) Basic
scientific research information not clearly related to the national
security may not be classified. (c) The President or an agency head or
official designated under Sections 1.2(a)(2), 1.2(b)(1), or 1.2(c)(1)
may reclassify information previously declassified and disclosed if it
is determined in writing that (1) the information requires protection in
the interest of national security; and (2) the information may
reasonably by recovered. These reclassification actions shall be
reported promptly to the Director of the Information Security Oversight
Office. (d) Information may be classified or reclassified after an
agency has received a request for it under the Freedom of Information
Act (5 U.S.C. 552) or the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.A. 552a), or the
mandatory review provisions of this Order (Section 3.4) if such
classification meets the requirements of this Order and is accomplished
personally and on a document-by-document basis by the agency head, the
deputy agency head, the senior agency official designated under Section
5.3(a)(1), [FN1] or an official with original Top Secret classification
