US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi should open an investigation into the leaks of the testimony of Donald Trump Jr.to the House Intelligence Committee, according to a letter released by three Republican congressmen on Monday.
The three lawmakers claimed that as intelligence panel was conducting its closed session interview with Donald Trump Jr., tidbits of his testimony were being leaked to the press.
As House Republicans make the case for special counsel Robert Mueller to end his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, they appear ready to bring their own intelligence probe to an end. The network reported two days after Trump Jr.'s meeting that he was sent an email on September 4, 2016 offering access to stolen DNC documents.

The lawmakers added: "These serious violations need to be investigated and any members responsible for such violations must no longer serve as part of this investigation". They also called for "appropriate disciplinary action" to be taken against any committee staffers who broke confidentiality agreements.
"Members or staff who may have violated rules by leaking sensitive information to the press or other outside entities must be promptly removed from this investigation and proper inquiries undertaken without delay".
