President Trump and GOP leadership have made it known that they are searching for the leaker of secret information from the White House. Do not be surprised if you hear of career staffers and Obama era appointees who were embedded start to resign. leaking is a federal felony and reporters who receive that information cannot refuse to reveal their source.
The resignation of gen Flynn was precipitated by one of those leaks. President Trump has made it clear that the big story there is illegally leaked information. Remember, Loretta Lynch is no longer the head of the DOJ and can’t block prosecution and Jeff Sessions will definitely move for prison time for anyone who is caught.
From Fox News:
The Republican leadership of the House Intelligence Committee wants the FBI to do an assessment of recent media leaks that have revealed details of sensitive discussions involving key Trump administration officials.
“We are going to be outlining all of our concerns over the last 60 days that appear to all be related, maybe even coordinated in some ways,” committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News. “I am going to be asking the FBI to do an assessment of this to tell us what’s going on here because we cannot continue to have these leaks as a government.”
The leaks include reported details from phone calls between President Donald Trump and the leaders of Australia and Mexico; from the intelligence community investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. presidential campaign; and most recently from conversations between National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the U.S.
