Like the rest of us, Congressman Trey Gowdy of upstate South Carolina is disturbed that so much classified and otherwise sensitive information keeps getting leaked out of our intelligence agencies and other government sources.
Gowdy recently appeared on Fox and Friends and said, “The unnamed source is one issue and I’m going to let the media sort out whether the moral quandary that is that. I tell you what is not a moral quandary, that is printing of classified information.”
He added, “I will tell you this: We had a hearing yesterday on one of our surveillance programs up for reauthorization programs this year. The reauthorization of these tools that we need to keep us safe is in jeopardy if we don’t stop the leaks. Leaks are illegal and they are dangerous and they are deleterious to our national security.”
