Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., on Saturday said he would like to bring in former Obama senior administration official Ben Rhodes to testify before the House Oversight Committee about the leaks coming out of the White House, the Hill reports.

"If you look at some of the leaks that have come out, for example, when the president’s having a conversation with a foreign leader, there may be a memo that’s created, distributed to the National Security Council. The next thing you know, it’s on the front page of the paper," DeSantis told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on MSNBC.

"Look, there’s only so many places that would come from. And the Obama holdover working with Rhodes, that's a place we’ve been encouraged to look," he added.

Rhodes, Obama’s top national security communications aide, has repeatedly slammed the Trump administration for its connections with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In April, he defended his former boss Susan Rice after Republicans charged she spied on Trump and his staff.

"I would like to bring him in to talk to him about it, because I want to figure out how all this information was getting out from the FISA intercept," DeSantis said, referring to information obtained under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
