Jim Jordan and Jamie Raskin Join Forces to Protect Reporters: ‘You Cannot Go After the Reporter’

‘We really cannot survive as a republic without a free press’

EXCERPT:

JORDAN: "The government should go wholeheartedly with everything they've got after people who are leaking information, particularly if it's classified. Let's go get those if they do. Bring the full force of the -- of the government and the law on people who do that. But you cannot go after the reporter. This is his fun -- freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of practice your faith. This is the First Amendment for goodness sake, so you cannot do that. But go after the person who leaked, I'm all for that. But not the reporter."
