President Donald Trump suggested Friday that it was “terrific” that the Department of Justice had caught senate aide James Wolfe leaking classified information to the media. “It’s very interesting that they caught a leaker — it’s a very important leaker,” Trump said, noting that he was still getting more information about the case.“It could be a terrific thing,” he said to reporters as he left the White House to travel to Canada for the G7 summit.
