The chairmen of the two key House committees handling military and foreign affairs want answers from the Biden administration regarding the ultrasensitive security documents that leaked on social media.

Some of the documents that have surfaced online dealt with the war in Ukraine and were labeled top secret. The U.S. government has provided Ukraine with more than $100 billion in assistance since the Russian invasion began in February 2022.

The Pentagon is reportedly trying to remove all of the leaked documents from online platforms, including Twitter and Telegram. 

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) was asked if he plans to launch a committee investigation into the leak and hold hearings.

"The reports of intelligence leaks are incredibly concerning," Rogers told Just the News on Monday. "The House Armed Services Committee is actively seeking answers from the Department of Defense."

Just the News also asked House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Mike McCaul (R-Texas) for his reaction to the leak.

"Any breach of classified material is serious, especially when sources and methods are identified," McCaul said on Monday in a statement provided to Just the News. "I urge the administration to investigate and move swiftly to identify the leaker and take appropriate action. The administration must also brief Congress on the security implications of this leak."
