A Feud Emerges In The Republican Party As Ryan Disses Sessions To Side With Journalists

On Friday Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent out a threatening message to journalist who report leaked information. But, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan took sides with the press, saying that it’s “the problem of the leaker, not the journalist.”

“Leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security, but that’s the problem of the leaker not the journalist,” Ryan said at an event in Muskego, Wis., on Friday afternoon.

Sessions sent out a dire warning to journalists and the intelligence community on Friday.

“We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited. They cannot place lives at risk with impunity,” Sessions said. “We must balance their role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in our intelligence community, the armed forces and all law abiding Americans.”

“I have this message for the intelligence community: The Department of Justice is open for business,” he added. “And I have this warning for would-be leakers: Don’t do it.”
