A conservative legal group Amicus Curiae Landmark Legal Foundation ("Landmark") has issued an order to the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to direct a "full investigation into the leaking of surveillance activity," a document revealed.
The order comes in response to the recent disclosure of classified information used in news reports that cite anonymous sources, including those belonging to the intelligence community.
The order read, "Landmark respectfully urges the Court to exercise its inherent power to protect the administration of justice and the integrity of the FISA process and direct the federal government to conduct a thorough investigation into these leaks, which include felony violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), 50 U.S.C. Section 1809 and pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Section 798."
The right-wing group isn't the only one who has been disturbed by the frequent links. President Trump took to Twitter in response to the seeming uptick in disclosing government information.
The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 15, 2017
