'Look around the room': Sarah Sanders slams media for classified leaks

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders accused reporters on Monday of recklessly publishing classified information, while defending the approval of an interim security clearance for former Trump aide Rob Porter, who resigned last week amid allegations of domestic abuse.

 

“I think we’re doing every step we can to protect classified information. If you guys have real concerns about leaking classified information, look around the room,” Sanders said during the daily briefing. “If anyone is publishing, or putting out publicly, classified information, it’s members of the press.”

 

Sanders said the media has repeatedly “leaked” classified information provided by sources on Capitol Hill, a move that “put national security at risk.”

 

 

The president’s top spokeswoman declined to detail the process through which White House aides obtain interim security clearances, days after she revealed that Porter had been operating on a partial clearance throughout his tenure in the West Wing.

 

“This is a process that doesn’t operate within the White House. It is handled by our law enforcement and intelligence community,” she said. “It’s the same process that has been used for decades by previous administrations.”

 

“I do think that it’s up to those same law enforcement and intelligence agencies to determine if changes need to be made to their process," she added.

 

Porter resigned last Wednesday after his two ex-wives came forward with allegations of verbal and domestic abuse. The White House has since struggled to offer a clear explanation about the timeline of the allegations and whether anyone in the West Wing was aware of the issues with his ongoing background check.
