At Wednesday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Mueller report, Attorney General Bill Barr revealed that there are "multiple criminal leak investigations underway" related to unauthorized media contacts by the department and FBI officials during the Russia investigation.
SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY: Okay. There have been a number of leaks coming out of the Justice Department/FBI during high profile investigations. The inspector general found that during the department's investigation of Hillary Clinton for mishandling highly classified information there was a culture of unauthorized media contacts. During the Russia investigation the leaks continued. Leaks undermine the ability of investigators to investigate. Further, leaks to the papers all congresses questions to the department go unanswered is unacceptable. Why--what are you doing to investigate unauthorized media contacts by the department and FBI officials during the Russia investigation?
ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR: We have multiple criminal leak investigations underway.
