Attorney General Merrick Garland held a news conference announcing the FBI arrested Jack Teixeira over classified documents leak. Garland says Teixeira was taken into custody earlier that afternoon without incident. Classified national defense information was allegedly removed, retained, and transmitted unauthorizedly, according to Garland. He further stated that Teixeira would be arraigned in federal court.
Garland did not answer any questions during the news conference. The circumstances surrounding the alleged leak of classified information and the motives behind it are currently unknown. The case is likely to draw attention from the media and the public in the coming days, as more information is expected to be revealed in court.
