Intel Chief Says He Has Filed Multiple ‘Crimes Reports’ Over Classified Leaks

J

ohn Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, said Sunday he has filed multiple “crimes reports” regarding alleged leaks of classified information to the media.

“When I become aware of intelligence community information that is disclosed unlawfully, I do what’s called a crimes report. I’ve done that now on a number of occasions, and so those investigations are moving forward,” Ratcliffe said on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Ratcliffe said that the timing of any prosecutions from the investigations “would be something that the FBI would have to address.”

“I think that they will down the road,” he added.

Ratcliffe said he wants to avoid “a repeat of what happened a month ago,” a reference to a briefing he gave to all members of Congress regarding foreign governments’ efforts to interfere in American politics.
