Trump and Ses­sions are wrong — leaks help ex­pose the truth

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Thomas M. Holz­faster,

“Ses­sions de­clares war on leaks, says probes have tripled this year,” Aug. 5 news story.

At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions and the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion have de­clared that leaks are a na­tional se­cu­rity dan­ger. This is clearly not true. With­out peo­ple will­ing to risk im­pris­on­ment and ex­ile over the years, we would never know of some of the hor­ri­fy­ing things our gov­ern­ment has done in our names, and in se­cret. We cer­tainly would never get the truth about any­thing vol­un­tar­ily from the cur­rent de­cep­tive, se­cre­tive, cor­rupt, crony-filled ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The so-called “pres­i­dent” him­self can­not get through a month with­out ev­i­dence of his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s lies sur­fac­ing in the news, and must reg­u­larly hold ral­lies among his deeply delu­sional sup­port­ers in or­der to feel his in­sane agenda is jus­ti­fied.
