A new poll from Rasmussen Reports found 53% of likey US voters believe the leaking of classified information to the media is an act of treason.
30% disagreed and 18% were undecided.
"[W]hile 73% of Republicans consider the leaking of classified information which plagues the Trump administration as treasonous, only half as many Democrats (36%) feel that way now. Voters not affiliated with either major party agree by a 50% to 27% margin that the leaks are an act of treason," Rasmussen Reports said.
The White House has reportedly identified three leakers of classified information.
The NY Post's John Crudele reported Wednesday:
[A Washington source told me] [t]he Justice Department has gotten a warrant from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — also known as the FISA court — to conduct electronic surveillance on a group of journalists who’ve been the recipient of leaked information, the source said.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter and Facebook.
