Sessions says U.S. has ramped up investigations of classified leaks

WASHINGTON, Aug 4 (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Friday the Justice Department had tripled the number of investigations into unauthorized leaks of classified information and that four people had already been charged.

“We are taking a stand,” Sessions told reporters as he announced the administration’s efforts to battle what he called “the staggering number of leaks undermining the ability of our government to protect this country.”

“This culture of leaking must stop,” he said. (Reporting by Julia Ainsley; writing by Tim Ahmann)
