<p>CNN anchor Chris Cuomo defended the illegal leaks aimed at the Trump administration Tuesday morning on CNN&rsquo;s <em>New Day</em>. He dismissed any possible damage done to national security by these unlawful acts. In an interview with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), he asked: &ldquo;You know Marco Rubio was just on. <strong>He said I&#39;ll tell you what concerns me, it&rsquo;s not just these reports but their source, the leaks, could be compromising national security, could make foreign leaders not want to work with us. What has come out that has compromised national security or chill a foreign leader?</strong>&rdquo; Manchin explained: <strong>&ldquo;</strong>Well, I guess the old saying that <strong>&rsquo;loose lips sink ships&rsquo; and people are concerned, can they trust us with information, can they trust us with the intel?</strong>&rdquo;</p>
