Carl Bernstein: ‘Remarkable’ Hypocrisy from House Intel Members Decrying Leaks of Classified Info


Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein said during the House Intelligence Committee hearing today that there’s some hypocrisy in the complaints from committee members about leaks of classified information.

Among the many issues addressed at today’s hearing, FBI Director James Comey got a number of questions today about leaks of classified information to the press, especially from Trey Gowdy.

Bernstein tweeted that “many intel members” decrying such leaks have “knowingly” leaked classified information themselves, and he mentioned Gowdy by name in the context of the Benghazi investigation:
