The leaks of sensitive information after this week's Manchester bombing is "a disgrace," "jeopardized" our greatest ally, England, and the leaker needs to be found and prosecuted to every extent of the law, former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., said Sunday.
"It is a disgrace, the leaks that are taking place," D'Amato told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y.
"There really should be an outrage. I don't hear the outrage. Our intelligence has jeopardized one of our great allies, England."
D'Amato called for the journalists reporting on the leaked sensitive information to be brought in and interviewed on "polygraph tests," even if they refuse to reveal their sources.
"Who the hell did it?" D'Amato asked candidly. "There should be outrage. This is wrong. This is scandalous. It is shocking.
". . . It is absolutely unfathomable. I would get that leaker. You got to break it down."
D'Amato does not blame England for being wary of sharing intelligence with the U.S. right now amid the deep state working against President Trump. He highlighted the danger of the leaks and the authority we should have in rooting them out of our intelligence community before more damage is done.
"[England is] threatening to curtail the normal operation of sharing sensitive information," D'Amato said. "That's a shame. That endangers our national security."
