Leaked news - Justice Dept investigating the leakers

The Justice Department has gotten a warrant from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — also known as the FISA court — to conduct electronic surveillance on a group of journalists who’ve been the recipient of leaked information, the source said.
The journalists are not the target, according to my source — and I say, thank goodness for that. Instead, the Trump administration is looking for the leaker. Who could it be?
Some in the administration are focusing on a retired, high-ranking military officer who held important posts in the intelligence service, according to the source.
Not sure what to make of this. A journalist is getting leaked information from a source telling the journalist that the Justice Department is monitoring journalists who are the recipient of leaked information? Why would this particular journalist know that he is not one of the journalists who are under surveillance and that his source is now under scrutiny?

But If true, and they are really after one particular person (and they seem to know who this person is) then hopefully they can bring him or her to justice. Although by leaking out the information that the leaker is probably known and that FISA warrants have been issued to help catch him or her... one might think that this might set off a warning to the "high-ranking military officer" in question.

Or perhaps that is really the point? To scare the leaks into submission? Obviously whoever leaked this news isn't worried.

Yep... when the leaks were made on Obama or Clinton, the silence from the right was deafening. Now they are all treasonous and must be stopped. And our esteemed host once again gives all an insight to his bias and cheerleading everything trump. Sad how selectively CH's memory works. LOL
