Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had the perfect solution to solve the Trump administration’s problem with individuals leaking stories to the media.
Gingrich appeared on “Fox & Friends” over the weekend, where he suggested that we should start throwing leakers in jail.

“I wrote my newsletter this week on the very real notion that we should lock people up who leak secrets. Let me draw the distinction; there’s political garbage from people who go across to the Starbucks near the White House and they sit and they tell insider stories. That’s unfortunate you ought to fire them if you can find them.”
“But that’s not the same as violating the Secrecy Acts. People who violate the Secrecy Acts ought to go to jail. What happened with the Manchester information for example, after the bombing in Manchester, undermined the British investigation, weakened our relationship to our allies and it’s dangerous.”
“Whoever leaked that should go to jail. You start putting a few people in jail, and you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically.”
He is right. Too many shady individuals are trying to take Trump down from within. It is unacceptable that all of this information is being leaked to the “Washington Post” and other liberal rags each week.
