Senator Mark Warner of Virginia is the first Democrat in Congress to come forward and demand an investigation into the leaks of sensitive government information, like the transcripts of Trump telephone conversations. Warner is the senior Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee and sees these leaks as “disgraceful” and very damaging to the ability of the President to deal with foreign leaders.
He also understands that if this type of behavior goes unpunished it could be just as pervasive in future administrations. Even some former members of the Obama administration are calling for the leaks to be plugged to protect our national security.
