President Trump is determined to uncover the source of the leaks with damaging details about his administration. as rumor has it current officials or a unit of Obama lieutenants, or both, are involved.
Suspects include ex-intelligence and other security officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Rumor has it they were in some way involved in revealing details of Michael Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. Details challenge what Flynn had told Vice President Pence and other Trump officials, leading to his resignation as national security adviser earlier this week.
“There were rumors from Day one when Mike Flynn signed aboard Team Trump that people were going to come after him. Individuals within the intelligence community that fired him once didn’t want him to come back,” a source said.
Could it be a part of an effort to preserve the Iran nuclear deal and settle old grudges?
A spokesman said, “Leaks need to be investigated, but those investigations should be conducted in a manner that is not disparaging of our dedicated IC professionals, nor destructive to the entire community.”
Trump said, “Those are criminal leaks.”
“Intelligence, papers are being leaked. Things are being leaked. It’s a criminal action – criminal act – and it’s been going on for a long time. Before me. But now it’s really going on. Documents and papers were illegally – I stress that – illegally leaked,” Trump said.
Trump seems confident that his administration, once in place, would be able to plug the holes.
Trump said, “Our new people are going in.”
