According to Meadows he believes Strozk and Page, leaked information on the 10th of April to the press. The leak was on former Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, the media outlet was the Washington Post, who published on April 11th, 2017 article that discussed the FISA warrant that had been obtained in October 2016 against Carter Page.
