The Justice Department is reportedly spying on a group of journalists in an effort to uncover who is behind the leaks of classified information to the media.
According to the New York Post’s John Crudele, the Department of Justice has acquired warrants from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing electronic surveillance of a select group of journalists who have recently received leaked information from anonymous sources.

The journalists, however, are not the ones being targeted, according to a source in Washington cited by Crudele.
The Trump administration is instead looking for the leaker, focusing on a retired, high-ranking military officer who worked in intelligence. He is suspected of getting information from three people who were part of former President Obama’s administration.
The three White House sources will either be fired or have already been fired, according to Crudele who noted that the cases were also turned over to the Justice Department for possible prosecution.
While the New York Post report has not been confirmed, many on social media were glad something is finally being done about the Deep State leaks that have plagued President Trump and his administration.

My guess about that warrant is, it is already done and they know the ‘who, what, where, when’ .. #MAGA ????

It’s funny when Obama did it, it was okay. The hypocrisy is laughable. Liberals heads exploding yet again!! Will never get used to this! ???

They’re trying to see whether or not the journalists are simply fabricating their “sources.” Which is probably a good way of going about it

Wrong. This was the Obama regime. Didn’t seem to bother Obamedia then. So they’re really in no position to whine now

Excellent… Maybe the leaker will get caught. Maybe the leaks will finally stop.
