Ronald Kessler's Column: Former U.S. Attorney Says Leaks Are Outrageous
Ronald Kessler, the veteran journalist and author of several books on the CIA and the FBI, interviewed former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova in his latest column at Newsmax,com.
The White House has engaged in “outrageous” leaking in an obvious attempt to enhance President Obama’s re-election efforts, Joe diGenova, the former U.S. Attorney in Washington, tells Newsmax.
“There has been a pattern of stories — not just a story — but a pattern of stories clearly leaking sources and methods information in order to make the president look like he is a tough cookie,” says diGenova, a noted commentator on legal and political issues.
“When you look at the series of stories, they run over a set period of time,” diGenova says. “Not once during that time that these three or four articles were appearing did you hear an objection from the White House, not from the press podium, not from the president, not from the national security advisor, not from the CIA director, not from the Department of Defense, and not from the National Security Council.”
That clearly indicates the leaks were authorized, says diGenova.
