ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A massive manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the CIA.

The info was published by Wikileaks last month.

The central intelligence agency source says they’re looking for an employee or contractor who had physical access to the information.

Investigators are currently going through hundreds of names.
