JUST IN: A lawmaker on the House Foreign Affairs Committee just confirmed where the leaks in Donald Trump’s White House are coming from, and it’s even worse than we thought.
Ever since Trump took office, his White House has been plagued by a series of leaks. This week, however, the White House leaker may have gone too far for his own good.
Conservative Tribune reported that the leaker just revealed that Trump ignored the written advice of his national security advisers to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his rigged election win on Tuesday in a phone call. After the leak, North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told reporters that this information “had to” come from the White House national security team headed by National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.
“Here’s the big deal. If you’ve got the national security council team leaking to the press, that’s a big deal,” Meadows said at a “Conversations with Conservatives” panel being held at the Heritage Foundation. “Quite frankly, some of the other stuff they’ve leaked is actually a crime.”
The Washington Post was first to report the leak, saying that Trump ignored “specific warnings from his national security advisers Tuesday when he congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his reelection — including a section in his briefing materials in all-capital letters stating ‘DO NOT CONGRATULATE,’ according to officials familiar with the call.”
The “officials familiar with the call” can only be a very small number of people, so Trump’s team is now closer than ever to determining who the leaker is. Whether it was McMaster himself or a top member of his team, the leaker’s days in Trump’s White House are most definitely numbered!
