Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on ABC's "This Week" program and said he is deeply concerned about leaks from the intelligence community, as well as domestic surveillance. Paul told show host George Stephanopoulos that the Obama administration spied on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign.
The Kentucky senator referred to transcripts of phone calls between Russia's ambassador and Flynn that took place before President Trump's inauguration.
“It is very, very important that whoever released that go to jail,” Paul said. “Because you cannot have members of the intelligence community listening to the most private and highly classified information and then releasing that to The New York Times.”
Paul surmised that there are only a few people who may have leaked the material. He wants them to “take lie detector tests” so that law enforcement and Congress can better understand the situation.
