CIA chief calls WikiLeaks a 'hostile intelligence service' | Reuters

WASHINGTON CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Thursday called WikiLeaks a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.

"WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service," Pompeo told an audience at a Washington think tank, adding that Russia's GRU intelligence service had used the anti-secrecy group to distribute hacked material during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
