Chaffetz on Leakers: ‘I Want People in Handcuffs’

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) discussed reports that an intelligence contractor was charged with sending classified information to the media about the National Security Agency’s findings that Russian officials attempted to hack a voting software company in 2016.

He said individuals leaking classified information should be “behind bars.”

Chaffetz said, “They have got to get after these leaks. I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat—doesn’t matter what administration. When you have classified information, you cannot put that out there just because you think it would be a good idea. I want people in handcuffs and I want to see people behind bars.”
