Prove your claim.
For much of the law’s existence, while it was used perniciously against anti-war demonstrators, it was not applied to journalists or their sources. It was not until 1971 that a person was indicted under the Espionage Act for providing classified information to a journalist. Between 1917 and 2009, only one person was convicted under the Espionage Act for leaking to a news organization.
But the Obama administration was determined to change that. Under pressure from Congress and intelligence agencies, Attorney General Eric Holder directed the Department of Justice to aggressively prosecute government employees who discussed classified information with reporters. In 2012, after news organizations reported on U.S. drone strikes and attempts to disable Iranian nuclear reactors, Holder assigned two U.S. attorneys to track down the journalists’ sources. President Barack Obama strongly supported Holder’s war against journalists’ sources, despite once promising to protect whistleblowers when in office and running for president on the national security scandals of the Bush administration — misdeeds that became public only because of leaks.

Nobody can. I wonder why that is?
Luckily a President can’t be impeached because “in my opinion his actions stink”
Yep. They want to impeach first, then find a crime.
They don't like what President Trump is doing policy wise,
they don't like the judges he is appointing!
They don't like it that the economy is booming, that people
have work options, that scares them.
They don't like Trump, he is mean!
So therefore he must be impeached!
He won’t be impeached.
