WH: Leaking classified data hurts national security

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany insisted on Tuesday that leaks of classified information damage the national security of the United States.

McEnany reiterated that the sources who provided the New York Times information that Russia offered the Taliban in Afghanistan "bounty" for killing American soldiers committed a "crime."

"The leaks have disrupted the inter-agency work," McEnany stressed, adding that the matter shouldn't be politicized. "Rogue intelligence officers" are endangering the lives of US troops by releasing the confidential data, she said.
