REPORT: Sessions Considers Drastic Measures To Find Leakers

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is floating the idea of putting the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to ferret out leakers, Axios reported.

According to the online news outlet, Sessions talked about the idea to multiple people — and as recently as last month.

The attorney general’s idea is to do a one-time, one-issue, polygraph test of the more than 100 people on the NSC staff, and ask them, individually, what they know about the leaks of transcripts of President Donald Trump’s phone calls with foreign leaders, Axios reported.

He has told associates he prefers the idea of targeting the foreign leader phone calls because there is a small enough universe of people who would have had access to these transcripts, the outlet reported.
