Sekulow: Reality Winner Arrest ‘a Good Start’ but Other Leakers ‘Need to Be Pursued Vigorously’

Reality Winner

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Wednesday to discuss the coming testimony of former FBI Director James Comey and the case of Reality Winner, who was arrested for leaking secrets from the National Security Agency.

Said Sekulow on Winner, “I also thought they should have brought espionage charges, not just improper handling and dissemination of information. But, again, they’ve got the file, the Department of Justice and I don’t.”

Adding that Winner is not part of any “deep state,” he continued, “The problem is, this is a good start but it’s not getting to the people inside the agency. These are contractors. But there are people inside the agencies that are guilty of leaking and they need to be pursued vigorously. I’m hoping that that grand jury is already empaneled.”

As for Comey, Sekulow said, “He’s not exactly a credible witness,” while pointing out several previous issues with testimony he’s given that has to be corrected later.

As for what to expect now, said Sekulow, “You don’t want to be left alone with the President of the United States? Well, that’s why you’re not the FBI director. Grow up and act like an adult.”

“It’s going to be whining testimony,” added Sekulow, saying he’s not sure what the intelligence community is even going to gain from the testimony. Comey is already leaking parts of his testimony and is said to not believe Trump tried to obstruct justice.

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
