Just who is organizing the leaks against Donald Trump?


The Republican majority of the Senate Committee for Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs denounces the disastrous consequences of the current leaks involving the Trump Administration.

This phenomenon, which was very rare under President George Bush Jr. and Barack Obama, has suddenly developed into a practice against President Donald Trump, resulting in irreparable damage to National Security.

During the first 126 days of Trump’s presidency, 125 pieces of classified information have been illegally leaked to 18 press agencies (the majority of the leaks being directed to CNN). The rate, it would appear, is around a leak a day, seven times more than the number of leaks during the corresponding period in the four preceding mandates. The majority of these leaks concern the inquiry into possible interferences by Russia during the last Presidential electoral campaign.

The President of the Commission, Ron Johnson (Republican Senator for Wisconsin) (photo) has referred the matter to the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

The existence of these repeated leaks makes us think that there is a conspiracy a-brewing within the high-level administration, 98% of whose officials voted for Clinton rather than Trump.
