President Trump’s choice for Director of National Intelligence Congressman John Ratcliffe of Texas had some choice words Wednesday on “investigation of the investigators.”
Ratcliffe wants the Justice Department to investigate the leak of President Trump’s first national security adviser, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s pre-inauguration phone call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Flynn’s “phone call with the Russian ambassador was a highly classified NSA intercept,” Ratcliffe said. “Someone in the Obama administration leaked that call to the Washington Post. That’s a felony.”
Radcliffe also harkens back to President Kennedy’s famous speech on the Deep State when he alleged that leaked FBI texts revealed the existence of an anti-Trump “secret society” within the FBI.
Radcliffe needs the Senate Intelligence Committee to approve his nomination after the August break.
