The Department of Justice has since January charged four people with disclosing classified information or concealing contacts with federal officers, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a news conference on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Sessions also said that the US Department of Justice is reviewing policies concerning subpoenas for the press about intelligence leaks.

“We’ve already charged four people with unlawfully disclosing classified material or with concealing contacts with federal officers,” Sessions stated.

“One of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas,” Sessions stated. “We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited, they cannot place lives at risk without impunity.”

Meanwhile, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said that leaks of classified information come from outside the Intelligence Community as well as from within, and include material shared by the executive branch and the US Congress.

“These national security breaches do not just originate in the intelligence community,” Coats stated. “They come from a wide range of sources within the government including the executive branch and including the Congress.”
