    Apparently that is the buzzword for this #SCAMdal.

    Leaking classified information is a crime.  It is against the law.  There are credible arguments that the government overclassifies documents/information.  I agree.  But it is not illegal or improper for the government to investigate crimes.

    Defenders of the freedom of the press, in my opinion, are making the wrong argument when they portray this as a scandal and/or call for DOJ firings.
