The Trump administration has been under siege from day one, with vindictive employees constantly leaking sensitive intelligence and conversations.
Despite cheerleading Obama’s unprecedented crackdown on leakers, the Left has been more than willing to encourage and celebrate such crimes as long as they damage the president.
While Trump and his loyal associates have smoked a few of the culprits already, with the biggest being former FBI Direct James Comey, there are still rats on the ship who are trying to undermine Trump’s presidency.
But inside the White House, loyalists are starting to say enough is enough, expressing the will to go to extreme lengths to plug up the leaks.
As reported at Breitbart, on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said he would fire his entire staff if leaks to the press from communications staffers continue.
Scaramucci said, “[U]nfortunately, he may have had a conversation in the Oval Office or somewhere about it, and then people rush out to leak that information to people. It’s very unprofessional and harmful.”
“They will get fired. Tomorrow I’ll have a staff meeting, and it will be very — I’m not going to make any prejudgments about anybody on that staff, if stay, they’re going to stop leaking.
If the leaks continue, we are strong is our weakest link and I’ll say it differently in a pun where a strong as our weakest leak.
If you guys want to keep leaking, get together and make a decision as a team that you’re going to stop leaking. If you’re going to keep leaking, I’m going to fire everybody.”
Such drastic steps appear necessary in light of the tenuous circumstances.
A White House can’t properly function when nobody can be trusted.
“We have to get the leaks stopped,” Scaramucci said. “What’s going on right now is a high level of unprofessionalism, and it’s not helping the president. … I will take drastic action to stop the leaks.”
It’s far past time this treasonous behavior was quelled. These leakers must be utterly crushed, so that those tempted to join their ranks will be deterred from such behavior.
Leftists have no place in the administration at any level, and you can bet this will continue until they’re completely purged.
They fancy themselves as a “resistance” to Trump and have been told by the media that they’ll be heroes if they leak intel, so it’s not surprising they’d be more than willing to do so.
Let’s just hope that Scaramucci keeps his word and fires everyone if the leaks continue.
