Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway acknowledged to host Sean Hannity that various leaks out of the Trump administration, including one that alleged former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had discussions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak about sanctions prior to the inauguration, were concerning to President Donald Trump.
Conway pointed to a tweet from Trump and called the leaks “dangerous stuff.”
The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?

“The president made it very clear in a tweet and in other comments,” Conway said. “The press secretary made it clear today. We’re very concerned about leaks, particularly as goes intelligence and security information. And it’s extremely concerning. It’s not for me to say where they’re coming from or whether there will be an investigation. But, it’s obviously taken very seriously by our commander-in-chief and by our president because he has said as much as recently as this week. And he’s right, Sean. We saw this before. We’re seeing it again this week. These leaks about intelligence and security, it should concern everyone. And if people are running to the media to leak and not provide that information to the proper authorities — that should concern all of us. This is not a partisan issue. This is dangerous stuff.
