Rep. Schiff: Trump Might Have Leaked Classified Info on TV

Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight"

By    |   Thursday, 16 Mar 2017 02:15 PM

The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee told The Washington Times on Thursday that President Donald Trump might have given out classified information during a televised interview with Fox News earlier this week.

"In his effort to once again blame Obama, the president appears to have discussed something that, if true and accurate, would otherwise be considered classified information," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said. "For anyone else to do what the president may have done, would constitute what he deplores as 'leaks.'"

Trump said Wednesday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight": "By the way, with the CIA, I just want people to know, the CIA was hacked, and a lot of things taken. That was during the Obama years."

The president did not specify if he was referring to documents published by WikiLeaks recently. Just last week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to confirm the authenticity of the WikiLeaks documents.

"For obvious reasons, it is our policy as a government not to confirm the authenticity of any kind of disclosure or hack," he said, according to The New York Post. "That would be highly inappropriate for us."

Like Trump, Spicer noted "all of these [leaks] occurred under the last administration — that is important. All of these alleged issues."
