On Monday, Trump&#8217;s national security adviser was forced to resign after The Washington Post reported on leaks of classified intelligence revealing that Flynn had engaged in talks with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the transition period, while Barack Obama was still president. In a tweet this morning, Trump wrote, &quot;The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers! They will be caught!&quot; On Wednesday, he wrote, &quot;Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes &amp; @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (<span class="caps">NSA</span> and <span class="caps">FBI</span>?).Just like Russia.&quot; We speak to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept.
