Great Britain threatened to stop giving information to the U.S. government after supposed secret information about the Manchester bombing found its way into U.S. newspapers.
Prime Minister Theresa May raised her concerns with President Trump at the NATO summit in Brussels.
Information was given to the U.S. government about details of the bombing while the investigation was still under way. That information found its way into several U.S. news outlets within hours and potentially compromised the investigation.
Reuters reported that the President was outraged at the leaks.
I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
— President Donald Trump
The New York Times published crime scene photos that were supposed to be classified and could harm the investigation. The Times defended its actions saying its coverage “has been both comprehensive and responsible.”
