President Trump issued a statement on Thursday in which he denounced U.S. leaks of photos and information regarding Britain’s investigation of the Manchester terrorist bombing.
Calling the leaks “deeply troubling” and promising that he would “get to the bottom of this,” Trump stated the following:
“The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security. I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is no relationship we cherish more than the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she would suspend the sharing of information between the two countries, and British law enforcement officials have reportedly been outraged by the leaks. After attending a cabinet meeting on Thursday, May said that she would “make clear” to Trump “that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure.”
