Charles Krauthammer said White House leakers are often spreading information in order to advance a cause.

On “The Story” Dana Perino asked Krauthammer, who holds a psychology doctorate, why leakers leak.

Krauthammer said the people involved likely have a negative cause – like bringing enemies down – or a positive cause – like exposing the truth – in mind.

He said an example of a positive leak would be those that occurred during the Watergate scandal.

He noted he was not making a formal medical diagnosis.

Krauthammer added that some people do “leak” for the “glory of it.”

But, he pointed out that many of those types of leakers end up like Julian Assange, “hiding out for six years in [Britain’s] Ecuadorian embassy.”
