Finally one of the leakers has been discovered and immediately the Department of Justice is acting and pressing charges on the federal contractor Reality L. Winner.
She was able to print out classified information at the DOJ and simply walk out and hand it to a reporter that then released it without question.
The NSA and DOJ claim that they have safeguards in place to stop this but with all of the leaks that come out seemingly every week, those promises have been proven wrong time and time again.
That is where Jason Chaffetz stepped in during his appearance on Fox News earlier tonight.
Chaffetz wasn’t messing around and immediately went for the throat of these leakers that think that they can get away with handing out classified information.
His response to the exposing of Reality Winner and the leakers that are still out there was simple.

“I want people in handcuffs.”
And this is exactly what should happen. No matter what party you belong to or what your problem is with the president, leaking classified information is a serious crime and should be punished with the full force of the law.
Chaffetz also brought up the lack of safeguards or the apparent lack of them with the ease that this classified information was leaked.
If a government contractor can walk in print out classified documents and then hand them to a reporter that should know better, these safeguards either don’t exist or aren’t working.
It is time to plug the holes that these leakers are leaving and make sure they are all caught and brought to justice.
They are not only breaking the law but also betraying their country and the secret information of our country that they are not to share with anyone.
Share this everywhere if you think these leakers are committing treason!
