United Kingdom police investigate Kim Darroch cables

UK police investigate Kim Darroch cables - CNN

It was the first time Mr Trump has spoken publicly about the subject since Sir Kim resigned earlier this week after his diplomatic cables, some of which portrayed the Trump administration in an unflattering light, were leaked.

The leaked memos have cast a shadow over ties between Britain and the United States and taken centre stage in the contest to be the next British prime minister.

It comes as Boris Johnson, front runner to be Britain's next prime minister, denied he was responsible for the resignation of Darroch but admitted his comments had been a factor in the shock departure of one of the country's most senior diplomats. However, you are now also responsible for diverting busy detectives from undertaking their core mission.

"If I were the Metropolitan police commissioner, and I wanted to maintain my credibility and the credibility of my force, I would quickly distance myself from this very stupid and ill-advised statement from a junior officer who doesn't appear to understand much about press freedom", the former chancellor tweeted.

Boris Johnson (L) refused to back British ambassador Kim Darroch (R) during a televised debate.

"The publication of leaked communications, knowing the damage they have caused or are likely to cause, may also be a criminal matter", he said.

Almost a week after the cables were leaked, Basu's announcement of the investigation ended with a pointed call to the media.

Sir Alan Duncan, a Foreign Office minister, said there was no evidence to suggest that Darroch's diplomatic cables had been hacked, so the focus was on finding the leaker within the department.

Mr Johnson refused to confirm Sir Kim would remain U.S. ambassador during an ITV debate with leadership rival Jeremy Hunt.

The president said he had been informed by his friend and golf partner, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, that, as well as calling his administration "inept", Sir Kim had said complimentary things about him.

"He was given a perfectly easy opportunity to say: "I'm sorry about this, he's an excellent ambassador and has my support", which we ought to give him because he is undoubtedly a superb ambassador and a very good civil servant, and he chose quite deliberately not to".

The British police has also advised "all owners, editors and publishers of social and mainstream media" not to publish leaked government documents, whether they already have them or are offered to publish new ones.

"I wish the British ambassador well".
