Judson Hill: Congress should investigate intelligence leaks

on February 16 | in In Focus | by | with No Comments

Former State Senator Judson Hill, who left his legislative seat to run for Congressional District 6, is calling on Capitol Hill lawmakers to look into intelligence leaks that led to the ouster of Trump’s national security adviser.

“The flood of sensitive, classified information coming out of our intelligence agencies could inflict long-term harm to the relationship between these agencies and the civilian leaders we elect to run the federal government,” Hill said. “If the president of the United States can’t trust intelligence agents to follow the law, that poses a direct threat to our national┬ásecurity. I believe strongly that Congress must provide oversight and root out this illegal behavior.”

Hill went on to say that Americans should support stopping the leaks regardless of their views on the information that has come to light.

“By no means am I stating that members of this administration or any other should operate with impunity, nor do I take lightly the danger posed by Russia to the United States and its allies,” Hill added. “If inappropriate or illegal acts occurred, there’s a legal way to blow the whistle, and it’s not through selective leaks from intelligence agencies to the media.”
