The Consequences for America are Greater than their Motives

Too much highly classified information and Intelligence processes capabilities are being leaked in troves. Our adversaries and enemies are reacting, adjusting and changing their tactics, techniques and procedures to the leaks of sources and methods and who and how we watch, monitor and surveillance.

This has got to stop immediately.

Our intelligence programs, capabilities, and processes are being compromised and destroyed as we speak. The leakers are going insane, in their Alinsky-style political mission of seek and destroy. Attorney General Sessions needs to establish a Grand Jury and call for a Special Prosecutor immediately — it must be done today.

The impact of leaks on the ability of our Intelligence Community to protect the nation, as a result of the compromised capabilities is costing the nation and taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a day, every day for as long as this goes on. Further, the ability to repair the compromises and damage is staggering when you include the now revealed capabilities that our adversaries will exploit, counter, and retaliate against. The culprits are known, their actions are felony criminal acts, we have their names — they need to be arrested, charged and prosecuted, immediately. There is no waiting and no time to contemplate or think about. The time is of the essence.

Do it, Do it NOW … Mr. President!
