Conway: Trump Is Taking 'Dangerous' Leaks Very Seriously
In the wake of Michael Flynn stepping down as national security adviser, President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers are turning their attention to the potentially "illegal leaks" that revealed Flynn's discussions with a Russian diplomat and other sensitive details from inside the administration.
On "Hannity" tonight, Kellyanne Conway said the leaks are "extremely concerning" and that Trump is taking them very seriously.
The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?

Conway said it's not for her to say where the leaks are coming from or if there will be an investigation, but that the incident is something that should concern all Americans.
"If people are running to the media to leak and not providing that information to the proper authorities, that should concern all of us," Conway said. "This is not a partisan issue. It's dangerous stuff."
She called on the media to focus less on "contentious interviews" and "tense exchanges" with Trump administration officials and more on the real issues at hand.
Conway said that her appearance on "The Today Show" Tuesday morning is an example of the press going into an interview with a conclusion and seeking evidence to retroactively justify it.
