CIA, FBI Search for Leaker Who Gave Classified Documents to Wikileaks

The CIA and FBI are on the hunt for a traitor inside the spy agency who turned over a trove of classified documents to Wikileaks.

Government officials told CBS News that the leaker either works for the CIA or is a government contractor.

Making the investigation more difficult, hundreds of workers had access to the data, which was published by Wikileaks in March.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo criticized Wikileaks for releasing the documents.

“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo said while speaking to the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

President Trump, however, had a much different opinion of Wikileaks during the presidential campaign.

“I love Wikileaks!” Trump said to a rally of supporters in Wilkes-Barre, Penn. in October.

Trump’s Pick for CIA Pledges to Continue Investigating Russia

President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for CIA director, Rep. Mike Pompeo, said Thursday he won’t balk at investigating Russia over  hacking and other issues.

His remarks are in direct contrast to Trump, who downplayed the seriousness of the hacks and said he wants to improve his relationship with Russia.

“So far, nothing in the C.I.A.’s 69-year history has prepared it to deal with a president who is as openly derisive of its work as Mr. Trump,” The New York Times reports. 

Trump has publicly criticized America’s spies, which is “very dangerous,” said former CIA director Leon E. Panetta.

“It sends a message to our adversaries, to our enemies, that somehow they might be able to take advantage of us because we are so in conflict in terms of the president and the intelligence community,” Panetta said.

Pompeo said the CIA will continue to aggressively investigate Russia.

“I will continue to pursue foreign intelligence with vigor no matter where the facts lead,” Pompeo said. He added that he would do this “with regard to this issue and each and every issue.”

Under his leadership, Pompeo said the CIA would provide “accurate, timely, robust and clear-eyed analysis of Russian activities.”
