That statement from someone in the GOP would be expected and ho hummed... but from Diane Feinstein?
"I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks," Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.
The California lawmaker said she was certain that President Barack Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn't disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. "I don't believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it," she said.
Feinstein said her committee would meet Tuesday to craft legislation that would address the leaks of classified information, including additional authorities and rules to stop the leaks.
Her comments came as U.S. officials said the number of people with access to some of the nation's most carefully guarded secrets topped 4.86 million in 2011.
That's up from 4.7 million people granted security clearances the year before, likely reflecting new hires approved by Congress as part of expanded clandestine operations in the Obama administration.
It'll be interesting to see how she (Feinstein) holds up under the pressure that is sure to be applied by the Chicago thugs in the White House.
Hope she stands her ground.
