Here's How Trump Will Start Swinging at the Media & Leakers
The Trump Administration has a new plan for dealing with leaks, the Washington Examiner reports:

The Trump administration is looking into ways to more aggressively subpoena journalists as part of its effort to crack down on leaks of classified information from the government.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that review is taking place in an announcement he used to warn government leakers that they are aggressively being investigated and will be prosecuted.
"I have listened to career investigators and prosecutors about how to most successfully investigate and prosecute these matters," Sessions said.

"At their suggestion, one of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas," he added. "We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited."
