Yep! Lock them up! Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend with some hard hitting advice on how to deal with White House leakers : “You start putting a few people in jail, you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
Newt Gingrich: “I wrote my newsletter this week on the very real notion that we should lock people up who leak secrets. Let me draw the distinction; there’s political garbage from people who go across to the Starbucks near the White House and they sit and they tell insider stories. That’s unfortunate you ought to fire them if you can find them.
But that’s not the same as violating the Secrecy Acts. People who violate the Secrecy Acts ought to go to jail. What happened with the Manchester information for example, after the bombing in Manchester, undermined the British investigation, weakened our relationship to our allies and it’s dangerous.
Whoever leaked that should go to jail. You start putting a few people in jail, and you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
