Recent security leaks of classified intelligence information have been of great concern in Washington D.C.. New York Republican Representative Peter King is accusing the Obama administration of purposely leaking the information in order to bolster his image of being tough on terrorism.
He's trying to be like George Patton or John Wayne," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News.
Further fueling the matter is Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to appoint two U.S. Attorneys to look into the leaks rather than using outside investigators.
Some Republican lawmakers have questioned whether the attorneys assigned by Holder will be able to act independently of the Obama administration. King added his voice to those skeptics Sunday, questioning what kinds of powers those attorneys might have should they come across wrongdoing.
If King's accusation are false, this could be a career killer for him. But, if true, the consequences would prove to be a greater disaster for the president.
