Sessions declares new Trump war on 'leakers'

Noted racist and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is sucking up to President Donald Trump this week by going on the attack against “leaks” on Friday. Sessions, who was too racist to get a job in Washington in the 1980s but is just racist enough to fit in 2017 warned of an impending crackdown on reporters and their sources, within the federal government.

From Reuters:

In a move derided by critics as an attack on the free press, Sessions said the administration was reviewing policies on forcing journalists to reveal their sources.

It is, however, difficult to prosecute members of the news media in the United States for publishing leaked information.

Sessions also told the employees of government agencies to stop leaking and called the issue a matter of national security. (...)

"One of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas," Sessions told reporters as he announced administration efforts to battle what he called a "staggering number of leaks undermining the ability of our government to protect this country."

"We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited," the nation's top law official said.
