Default Karl Rove Names Most Likely Source of White House Leaks

Karl Rove Names Most Likely Source of White House Leaks | Fox Business

Quote:
Former George W. Bush Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove said on Friday the White House leaks are originating from career government officials and the lack of consequences is damaging to President Trump.

“Our biggest current leaker is [James] Comey who is obviously going back to his notes, internal memorandum and through a friend or friends leaking them to the press,” Rove said during an interview on the FOX Business Network’s Cavuto: Coast-to-Coast.

Former Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert Ray said it’s possible that some of the White House leaks have resulted from Trump’s combative relationship with intelligence agencies.

“You are always going to deal with career people in Washington who don’t owe political alliance to you. They are an important part of government which the president I think has come to understand,” Ray told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto.

Rove said outside of the intelligence community, White House staffers are the principal source of the leaks against the Trump administration.

“I am most mystified that so many people in the West Wing are spending so much time trashing their colleagues, ill-serving the president in the process but that is a deliberate decision on their part,” he said.

Rove thinks Trump needs to send a clear and direct message throughout the West Wing that any feedback against the administration is detrimental to the president’s ability to invoke policies that will better serve the American people.

“If you are trashing one of your colleagues, you are trashing me. If you are trashing a policy that we have agreed upon, you trashing me. If you are trashing me, you trashing our administration and thereby hurting our ability to serve the people who sent us here,” he said.
The career staff in most of the agencies are loyal to liberals and that is why they should be fired. Instead of being loyal to the country they can only think of how to destroy our once great nation.

This is the true depth Trump must go to drain the swamp.

He must boot out every f'ing liberal Democrat partisan, from Government.

Or at least enough of them the rest STFU and keep their jobs.

The fact Comey is leaking info is more proof his firing was justified. Dude is just incompetent, like he was in the Clinton investigation. There was no genuine investigation into Clinton. He was ordered by Obama and Lynch to let her off. The results were predetermined before the investigation begun.

BLAME THE LIBERALS


This is getting very old but it's apparently all the Republicans have.

The problem for President Trump isn't Democrats that are sore losers over the election.

The problem for Donald Trump isn't the career staff at government agencies.

The problem for Donald Trump isn't that his own staff is leaking information to the press.

The problem for Donald Trump is Donald Trump. He's completely unqualified and unfit to be president which is why almost everything said about him in the media is negative. He creates one disaster on top of another, often creating more than one in a single day, and his administration is a complete disaster.

The conservative political experts warned Republicans that Trump was unfit and unquailed to be president. Many even endorsed Hillary Clinton which is really saying a lot about how bad Trump really is. I've read that today about 10% of those that voted for Trump because they couldn't stand Hillary Clinton wish that Hillary Clinton would have won the election.

So let's just be clear about this one fact.

DONALD TRUMP IS THE PROBLEM
WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

They can't have this administration be at fault for anything. They have to always find someone else to blame.
