FBI Director James Comey Slams WikiLeaks As Intelligence Porn

On Wednesday, FBI Director Comey called WikiLeaks “intelligence porn” that is pushed out without consideration for innocent civilians’ lives and done to damage the United States of America.

Saying WikiLeaks pushes information out in order to damage the United States, Comey branded it “intelligence porn”, “This activity I’m talking about WikiLeaks involves no such considerations whatsoever; it’s what I said intelligence porn, just push it out in order to damage.”

Watch here:

“In my view, a huge portion of WikiLeaks’ activity… is simply about releasing classified information to damage the United States of America.

“People sometimes get cynical about journalists. American journalists do not do that. They will almost always call us before they publish classified information… and then work with us to try and accomplish their important first amendment goals while safeguarding those interests (innocent civilians lives, etc.).

This activity I’m talking about WikiLeaks involves no such considerations whatsoever, it’s what I said intelligence porn; just push it out in order to damage.”

Comey said Julian Assange has not been apprehended because because he is inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, but that WikiLeaks is an important focus of their investigation.
