Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich launched into the latest leaks from President Donald Trump's administration, saying the perpetrators "ought to go to jail" on Fox News' "The Story" Friday.
The ex-presidential candidate addressed the most recent leaks, including one about the attack in Manchester, U.K., and one about Trump's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner being the subject of FBI "scrutiny in the Russia investigation," according to NBC News.
The Washington Post reported last week that a senior White House official close with Trump was a "person of interest" in the inquiry.
"Do they have a single named source for the story?" Gingrich asked.
"This is The Washington Post at its most disgusting," he added. "You see these kinds of stories . . . that happen to crop up every day either in the Washington Post or The New York Times, they play, you know, ping pong. They say, 'unknown sources told us today.' I find that frankly sickening.
"These people, you have the president on a great, amazing, historic tour. He was very successful tour, he was very successful with NATO, he was very successful with the pope yesterday, he was unbelievably historic in Riyadh with 58 leaders."
"But three unnamed sources this afternoon having a drink with a Washington Post reporter secretly leaked, how do you know any of its true? And furthermore, if it's from Mueller's investigation he should be enraged, and he ought to lock somebody up. I mean the people who leaked the British story are not in the White House, they were in the intelligence community, and they ought to go to jail."
