White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday defended President Trump’s past effusive praise for WikiLeaks, in light of the outlet’s leak of classified CIA documents this week. “There is a big difference between disclosing John Podesta’s Gmail accounts and the back-and-forth about his undermining of Hillary Clinton and his thoughts on her on a personal level, and of leaking classified information,” Spicer said, deflecting from questions about how Trump could have previously applauded WikiLeaks for its actions during the 2016 campaign. “There is a massive, massive difference between those two things, and I think it’s—again—the interest and the outrage that occurred last year by Democrats about a lot of leaks, it’s interesting we’re hearing not as much outrage now when it comes to some of our issues of national security,” he continued. The White House did not, however, confirm the authenticity of the latest WikiLeaks documents which appeared to detail CIA hacking tools.
