Congressman Peter King (R-NY) Wednesday on CNN accused the Obama administration of providing classified information to Sony Pictures and filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow for a film on the mission that killed Osama bin Laden.
“I’ve been contacted by so many people in the intelligence community over the last 90 days, outraged over so much sensitive material” being leaked, King said.
King, the Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, has called for an investigation into the leaking of “top-level access to the most classified mission in history.”
“This administration has revealed classified information, sensitive information, step-by-step, for the last 90 days,” King continued.
White House Spokesman Jay Carney said the claims were “ridiculous,” adding that he hoped the House Committee on Homeland Security had more important topics to deal with.
