Trump bombshell: Police think they know who was responsible for ambassador leak

Donald Trump says he wishes Sir Kim well

London's Metropolitan Police said its terrorism command, which investigates potential breaches of Britain's Official Secrets Act, had initiated the probe into the leaking of Kim Darroch's correspondence.

Announcing the criminal investigation on Friday, the Met's Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said the alleged leak had damaged United Kingdom worldwide relations, reports the BBC.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump has suggested that he was too quick to denounce Sir Kim following the leak of his diplomatic dispatches in which he described the White House administration as "inept" and "dysfunctional".

Sir Kim stepped down as USA ambassador on Wednesday, asserting it modified into "very no longer going" for him to continue.

Trump had always been critical of the deal and withdrew the United States on May 8, 2018.

Shadow global minister Liz McInnes said Sir Kim Darroch changed into once "factual doing his job" and the legal investigation changed into once "welcome".

It says the memo was written after the then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson appealed to the U.S. in 2018 to stick with the nuclear deal.

In furious verbal attacks on Darroch, Trump has described the ambassador as "wacky", "a very stupid guy" and a "pompous fool".

The memos said rumours of "infighting and chaos" in the White House were mostly true.


The government launched an internal Whitehall inquiry into the publication following the reports.

However, he was widely criticized by editors and politicians including the foreign minister Jeremy Hunt and ex-London Mayor Boris Johnson, the two men battling to replace Theresa May as prime minister when she steps down in just over a week's time.

Speaking to Andrew Pierce on LBC, Mr Grieve said: "I think we're heading for a very bad place with Boris Johnson and that for me was quite a defining moment of an individual who has no responsibility except to himself".

Darroch stepped down from his role on Wednesday.

"Also, to anyone who knows or suspects those responsible, or who has any information, please come forward", he added.

Britain's ambassador to Washington believed US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal because it was associated with his predecessor Barack Obama, leaked documents showed Saturday.

"What could be more in the public interest than a better understanding of how this position was reached, which may have serious consequences for world peace?"

In response, a Foreign Office spokesman called it a "totally unacceptable leak" of "sensitive material" and called for the source of the leak to "face the consequences of their actions".

"It's not news that the USA and United Kingdom differ in how to ensure Iran is never able to acquire a nuclear weapon; but this does underline that we do not shy away from talking about our differences and working together".
