Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has requested a classified briefing for all senators on the leaked

classified U.S. documents on the war in Ukraine, according to a spokesperson for the Senator.

A trove of Pentagon documents that were leaked online show just how deeply the United States has penetrated Russian security and intelligence services, allowing military officials to warn Ukraine about planned attacks amid the Kremlin’s invasion. The leak is one of the largest of alleged classified US military documents in a decade. A Pentagon team is investigating and looking into the impact of the disclosure, spokesperson Chris Meagher told reporters on Monday.

The leak involves more than 50, perhaps as many as 100, photographs of folded and wrinkled briefing slides from February and March, including some marked “Top Secret,” “SI-gamma,” for “signals intelligence,” and “NOFORN” for “no foreign nationals.”

PENTAGON IN FULL DAMAGE CONTROL MODE AS EXTENT OF INTELLIGENCE LEAK UNKNOWN

Lawmakers have expressed concerns about the scope of the leak and the sensitivity of the information, but many remain uninformed about what exactly played out. House and Senate Intelligence leaders are demanding answers from the Biden Administration. They were set to receive a briefing on Monday.
