Romney Joins Top Dem in Pointing to White House as Source of Leaks

Romney seized on a comment Monday from Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. “I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,” the senator told a World Affairs Council forum.

The California lawmaker said she was certain that Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn’t disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House.
