Rand Paul has bad news for the people who leaked intelligence information to media

On Cavuto, Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) reacted to the leak of an intelligence dossier used to perpetuate fake news about Donald Trump. Paul says the intelligence agent who leaked it to the media should be jailed.

"Anyone who leaked it [to the public] should be prosecuted," Paul said, "If an intelligence agency head talked to the media, they should go to jail; if it was [someone in the] Obama administration, they should go to jail."

"Somebody is releasing information [someone] is using to blackmail," Paul said.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., admitted he handed the unverified information to the FBI last year.

“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,” McCain said in a statement Wednesday. “Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI.”

“That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue,” he added.
