Someone Leaked Classified Transcripts Of Trump’s Phone Calls With Foreign Leaders

The Washington Post on Thursday published portions of classified transcripts of combative phone calls President Trump had earlier this year with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.

The transcripts portray acrimonious conversations between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, largely on the issues of immigration, border wall funding and refugees.

    Someone needs to be made an example of.

    • I hope soon.

      Let’s hope Gen. Kelly gets on the case ASAP.

        It should not be that hard to do. Identify those who had access to the information and work from there, because I doubt it would have been a large number of people.

        • Editor

          My thoughts exactly. Those would be pretty protected transcripts. It should make for a rather straightforward investigation. I hope it happens and heads roll.

    Sounds like Trump is fighting hard for American interests.

    • Millie_Woods

      I can’t see how this leak will hurt Trump.

      • Alain

        I do in that it signals a certain level of incompetence in the Trump administration. That will be directed at Trump himself of course.

        • Millie_Woods

          People are getting used to the chaos. And really, that’s what he was elected to do….burn down the system, call out sunny-day allies, ferret out the rot in the administrative state, break the bureaucracy and restore free America. . Every day I pray that God gives him strength and guidance and keeps him safe. There’s a lot left to be accomplished.

    What we have happening is a legal coup. The elites in both political parties hate Trump, and are waging a full scale war against him. And of course civil servants and the media are doing their part to destroy his administration.

    • They do seem to be intent on restoring their entitlements.

    • I’m not sure how leaking these documents is legal.

      People are violating the law to oust this man.

    What is not mentioned is that Turnbull was desperate to clear a camp of ≈1250 immigrants who had attempted to enter Australia by boat despite the publicised government commitment that someone attempting to enter Australia by this means would never be allowed in. This camp was ordered closed by the New Guinea courts on whose land it was built under a deal with the New Guinea government, so there was a strict deadline for the Australian government. The immigrants were claiming to be ‘refugees’ but almost every single one was an economic migrant that hoped to take advantage of the welfare state of Australia.

    In return Australia was supposed to take in at least an equivalent number of immigrants that the US did not want to allow into the US but may have been detained pending deportation. In essence it was supposed to be a deal where both countries benefitted from the exchange of immigrants that would otherwise have been a political problem for both countries.

      Was in exchange of Central Americans in USA, such as Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala.

    Since the election the result is that Trump is in office but is not in power. Unless this changes, it will be a return to the old corrupt establishment with the American people being the losers.

    That was at the beginning of his term before an in-depth sweep of the place was carried out, even bringing down walls (no pun intended). Also, he is not a politician and was new in his role.

    Media was asking him to stop tweeting but he doubled-down when he understood about the intrusive surveillance and the leaks.

    Who is the leaker to WaPo? Obama administration CIA elements, most probably, since FBI is to NYT what CIA is to WaPo. They’ve been holding on to this for a while and leaked it now.

    • Alain

      That may be, but the leaking is still going on. It is imperative that it be stopped.

      • krystal10

        I agree and it shall come to pass. This is an elaborate Obama setup to undermine Trump’s presidency. This was prepared months before Trump’s election when Dem internal polls showed Trump winning the election.

        It’s quite possible this particular leaker no longer works for U.S. government, held on to the info, and leaked it now. Obama has Valerie Jarrett living in his home near the WH for a reason.

    Oh man. He’s not gonna like getting kneecapped like this.
