if it's to be applied at all, which will criminalize much of what goes on in the media and in government.

"will criminalize"? - or will hold to account for breaking the law and leaking classified info? Isn't it already a crime?

For government employees. Or transmitting or possessing documents, even in your socks. Transmitting verbal information for non-employees, perhaps, this prosecution will determine that. My only point is that if it's criminal, it needs to be prosecuted uniformly. That's never been the case, perhaps it will in the future. Look to seeing indictments of many in both the media and government. I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad thing, but it's going to be quite a circus because it will change the way our nation operates.
