WASHINGTON The Democratic leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the White House appears to be responsible for some leaks of classified information.

"I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks," Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.

The California lawmaker said she was certain that President Barack Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn't disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. "I don't believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it," she said.

Republicans have criticized the disclosures, arguing that members of the Obama administration were intentionally leaking classified material to enhance the president's reputation in an election year. Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed two attorneys to lead the investigation into who leaked information about U.S. involvement in cyberattacks on Iran and about an al-Qaida plot to place an explosive device aboard a U.S.-bound airliner.

Holder will be sure that any info is buried. It makes me sick when they used to yap about John Ashcroft. He was a good man, knew him from meeting at many political events in St Louis. I know it was sort of weird that he had the naked bust statues draped, but he didn't pull the junk that Holder is pulling. Ashcroft was a stand-up guy who I believe could be trusted. Holder isn't.

Feinstein said her committee would meet Tuesday to craft legislation that would address the leaks of classified information, including additional authorities and rules to stop the leaks.Her comments came as U.S. officials said the number of people with access to some of the nation's most carefully guarded secrets topped 4.86 million in 2011.That's up from 4.7 million people granted security clearances the year before, likely reflecting new hires approved by Congress as part of expanded clandestine operations in the Obama administration.

That's a helluva lotta secrets, Barry. Who you spying on? Besides Romney, of course.

Perhaps congress should subpena some classified information. That will surely cause him to keep it under wraps. It' probably issue an executive order to quash the subpena.

It sounds like they Corey Booker'd her. Fox News said on The Five that she's backtracked on her original comments. They must have one hell of a woodshed. They look like they've been lobotomized after the dems work on them.

Personally I think the leaks are coming from Biden. I know that sounds weird but that's what I think.
