Who’s Behind the Leaks?

Call it the Oval Office virus. After less than a month in office, President Donald J. Trump, who as a candidate embraced WikiLeaks and a torrent of leaks about his rival Hillary Clinton’s campaign, has become a champion of government secrecy. In a rowdy, 77-minute press conference Thursday, Trump said that he had personally instructed the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into the leak of embarrassing information about his conversations with foreign leaders and former National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn’s contacts with Russia. While it is unusual for a president to ask for such a criminal investigation, or to discuss it publicly, no law prevents him from doing so. “It could be perceived as a political witch hunt,” warned Susan Hennessey, a scholar at the Brookings Institution and former intelligence agency lawyer.

    Good for him. That crooked Hillary knew that her claim of Trump not paying taxes for 10 years was from a News paper claim which must have gotten the Tax Return records illegally by someone in the IRS under the Crooked Lois Learner.
    Obama never said that he would insist the FBI find out who in the IRS is breaking the Law.
    When crimes benefit Obama and Hillary it’s okay because they have good intentions .

    • Ain’t that the way.

    Word is the National Guard story was a plant to catch the leaker.

    • Hmmm interesting

      I heard that as well as that it was 4chan trolling the AP.

    Did any one happen to notice that there was a wee bit of jocular camaraderie when Trump and BIBI met ?

  • Shebel

    I hope they discussed , in all seriousness, –George Soros and Barrack Obama and maybe the baby—Justin Trudeau.

    When you already know those that have decided that they know what is best for the Planet—and they are the only ones to LEAD– this new World ORDER.
    –it is probably best just to keep a quiet eye on them.

  • Shebel

    I feel a bit safer knowing that BIBI is there to simmer Trump down.

  • Shebel

    Not that it would make IRAN feel any safer.

    I wonder when Iran is going to have their next little chant of
    Death to America !!!
    Death to Israel !!!!!!.
    Maybe they should shoot of a coupla Rockets just to show that they are Nuclear.

      NeverTrump, elitist crap.

    Who are the leakers? They are communist sleeper agents who were installed in their positions by the previous administration. The simplist solution is to fire every civil servant who was employed by the previous admin.

      T – Rex is taking your advice. He just wiped out a whole floor a the State Department.

    It seems Trump want’s to find the leak legally, unlike the clinton’s who just had the leak “offed”.

  • andycanuck

    Judith Miller just cost City Journal a reader along with NeverTrump NR and WS.
    The masks continue to come off.

    “The leaks are real the information fake. ” POTUS. That statement and it was a statement, says the smart money bets Trump as the provider of information to out the leakers.

    This is becoming a Robert Ludlum novel, playing out real time.
