The release of sensitive CIA documents by Wikileaks may have compromised national security, national officials said.
“This alleged leak should concern every single American in terms of its impact on national security,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer at Wednesday’s Press Briefing, Sinclair Broadcast Group reports.
Senators from both sides of the aisle condemned the leaks.
“For anybody who’s been under the illusion that Wikileaks is some kind of public service operation, this is a propaganda arm of the Russian government – that’s what they’re doing,” said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, added: “This is a devastating blow and we should have learned from the last leaked where an employee leaked reams of classified information.”
Several national security agencies are investigating the leak in hopes of identifying who provided the documents to Wikileaks.
