National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster has some stern words for Trump administration staffers who leak information to the media.

“I think what’s very important is that everyone that’s involved in these sort of policy discussions understand the sacred trust that is placed in them and they realize that speaking to the media about government deliberation is treasonous when it involves national security,” McMaster firmly stated.

McMaster made the comments Tuesday during a panel discussion at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Press leaks have become an issue with the Trump administration’s 367 member National Security Council.

McMaster has begun to reduce the number of members on the council, and has required remaining members to undergo new training on handling sensitive information.
