Since Donald Trump was elected President, there has been a very high and unprecedented amount of leaking of classified information coming out of the White House. The leaks have included details about Trump’s phone calls and even meetings within the Oval Office with foreign leaders. Most of the leaks, I’m guessing can be attributed to the “holdovers” from the Obama administration. Like spoiled food, sooner or later, leftovers rot!
As we all know President Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp” which unfortunately for him, needs to still happen in the White House. Any previous Obama administration ‘holdovers’ certainly do not have any allegiance to President Trump. It’s time for them to go!
H/T Western Journalism:
A new report said the source of some leaks from the White House has been found, and three individuals believed to have leaked information to the media will be fired when President Donald Trump returns from his foreign trip.
Yingst said the three individuals have been referred to the Office of Government Ethics, which could recommend prosecution.
Here’s a report from Trey Yingst, the White House Correspondent for One America News Network:
As of Tuesday, no other media outlets have independently reported this information.
“This is bombshell news, as internal leaks have plagued the White House since before inauguration day,” wrote Mary Kate Knorr on Young Conservatives.
“Make no mistake, it will be a bloodbath when the names of these leakers are released. This is bound to be a heavily-publicized process, as numerous top operatives and politicians have noted the leaks from this White House have been unprecedented,” she added.
In discussing a recent leak in which Trump allegedly referred to former FBI Director James Comey as a “nut job,” Michael Gerson of the Washington Post underscored the severity of the type of leaks that have plagued Trump’s administration.
“The ‘nut job’ leak suggests … a real attack on the president from within his inner circle. It was designed to reveal Trump as a foolish figure and expose him to charges of obstruction. Whoever read this material over the telephone to a reporter was playing for the highest stakes,” Gerson wrote.
“This type of high-level leak leaves the president and his inner circle unable to trust his team. It leaves foreign officials unable to feel confident in the confidentially of the highest-level diplomatic discussions. And it points to a foreign policy establishment that is making political judgments, which involve serious dangers,” he added.
Gerson said a “leak of classified material to damage the president is the abrogation of a professional standard, and the arrogation of democratic authority. This undermines the authority of the institutions they serve by confirming the view, held by a significant number of Americans, that the ‘system’ is somehow rigged.”
Marc A. Theissen, in a Washington Post column, pointed out that when leaks to the media said Israel was the source of information Trump shared with Russia, those who leaked the information did more damage than the president whom the leakers were maligning.
“These geniuses were so appalled by Trump sharing sensitive intelligence with the Russians that they shared even more sensitive intelligence with the media — and thus the entire world — in order to demonstrate that Trump cannot be trusted with sensitive intelligence,” he wrote.
“In so doing, these leakers possibly did far more damage to U.S. national security — and intelligence-sharing between the United States and Israel — than anything Trump may have revealed to the Russians,” he added.
These leakers and others need to be fired! Enough is enough! The leftovers from the Obama administration need to be cleaned out of the White House. President Trump needs to be able to count on his White House staff.
President Trump is currently on a 9 day tour in the Middle East and Europe. He is not expected to return until Saturday.
These leftovers are like any spoiled food in your refrigerator – they need to be dumped as soon as possible.
These Obama leakers and leftovers are putting President Trump and our country at risk! They need to be fired and then jailed for leaking classified information. Enough already!
President Trump needs to continue to #DrainTheSwamp. There seem to be a pungent odor in the White House. It’s time to dispose of the Obama leftovers.
Any bets as to what Department they may be from or are past loyalists to Director Comey? How about bets if one leaker has a first name of ‘Dina’? We should find out soon enough!
