CIA, FBI Launch Manhunt For Leaker Who Gave Top-Secret Documents To WikiLeaks

The CIA is searching for a traitor inside their own spy agency as it was revealed Wednesday that the saboteur who handed a trove of documents to Wikileaks in March works for the government.

Both the CIA and FBI have launched an investigation to find the potential mole who leaked thousands of top-secret documents which revealed how the government can hack into your laptop and smartphone, according to CBS News.

The leaker either works for the CIA or is a government contractor, CBS said.

Although the stolen material was classified and secured, the network claims hundreds of workers had access to the data.

Wikileaks published the information in March. The documents outlined how the CIA has developed tools to penetrate Apple products such as iPhones and MacBooks.

In comments last week, CIA director Mike Pompeo expressed his anger at the shadowy Wikileaks organization headed by the fugitive hacker Julian Assange.

“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo said while speaking to the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

President Trump, however, had a different take while the website was spilling secrets about Hillary Clinton’s campaign before the 2016 presidential election.

“I love Wikileaks!” Trump said to a rally of supporters in Wilkes-Barre, Penn. in October.
