Various bodies of the U.S. government are starting to take action against WikiLeaks. Incoming House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Pete King, R-N.Y., introduced a bill Thursday which makes it illegal to publish the names of military or intelligence community informants, The Hill reports.

King, Assange, WikiLeaks, BillA Senate version of the bill was proposed last week. King already called on Attorney General Eric Holder to prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (pictured) under the Espionage Act. His bill, the Securing Human Intelligence and Enforcing Lawful Dissemination (SHIELD) Act, would give the Justice Department that authority.

“[Wiki founder] Julian Assange and his associates who operate and support WikiLeaks have not only damaged U.S. national security with their releases of classified documents, but also placed at risk countless lives, including those of our Nation’s intelligence sources around the world," King says in a statement.
