The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee said he will soon formally ask the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate who publicly exposed the identity of a confidential FBI informant and hold the person or persons behind the leak responsible.
"Ladies and gentlemen, a deliberate decision to expose the identity of a confidential source is reckless, stupid, and dangerous. Moreover, the decision to out this operative may be a crime," Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said during a press conference on Thursday.
"Later today, I will ask the Department of Justice to investigate the source of this disclosure - which never should have happened - and to hold the perpetrators accountable," he continued.
Nadler blasted President Trump for seeking to distract or even undermine the federal probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as Kremlin interference in the 2016 election.
