A recent independent news source claims that the White House leaks were designed to undermine President Trump and his administration. The same source also claims the leaks have been coming from #NeverTrumper Kate Walsh, White House Chief of Staff and Reince Preibus’ gal-pal. Walsh is reportedly being investigated for distributing highly confidential information to sources like the Washington Post and the New York Times.
It seems Walsh is also a good friend of Maggie Habberman, a reporter from the New York Times, who’s name you might remember was mentioned in the Clinton/Podesta emails as a “friendly journalist”. In other words she’s nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democratic political hacks and an opportunist. Sounds to me like we have one opportunist collaborating with another opportunist to undermine President Trump.
White House Deputy Chief of Staff and #NeverTrump Republican Katie Walsh has been identified as the source behind a bunch of leaks from the Trump administration to The New York Times and other media outlets, according to multiple sources in the White House, media, donor community, and pro-Trump 501(c)4 political group.
“Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press,” says a source close to the president. “The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she’s doing it to advance herself in DC media circles.”
One source in particular stands out: Walsh is close to Maggie Haberman, a New York Times reporter who wrote fawning pro-Republican National Committee stories during the presidential election. Walsh has also planted stories in The Washington Post and Politico.
Walsh is referred to as “Madame President” in the White House, says a senior aide. “It isn’t a compliment.”
Walsh would have significant access as she controls the president’s schedule. There’s also reportedly a trove of e-mails where Katie Walsh and Reince Priebus discuss how to rid themselves of Trump, according to a former #NeverTrump consultant.
“The president and his allies have been deliberately feeding her fake information in order to find her network,” says a source close to the president’s family. “It’s been going well.”
Walsh was a #NeverTrump Republican during the campaign. Neither Walsh nor her family were supporters during the campaign, says a source from Walsh’s hometown of St. Louis.
President Trump is a clever businessman. He wasn’t born yesterday. If there’s a problem within the White House, like infested rats or leftover DemocRATS from the Obama administration, I have no doubt, President Trump will get to the bottom of it and #DrainTheSwamp.
