Scaramucci: Trump WH will take ‘dramatic action’ to stop all the illegal leaks

(National SentinelWest Wing: For months, before and since taking office, Team Trump has been subjected to an unprecedented campaign of felonious leaking of information — from his own White House; from Deep State #nevertrump operatives, some of whom are likely holdovers from the Obama administration; and some of whom are likely careerists within government who don’t take kindly to some populist outsider coming to D.C. thinking he can ‘run things.’

The White House now appears to have had its fill and is mounting a counterattack of sorts aimed, hopefully, at nailing the leakers and making examples of them.

As reported by Axios on Sunday, newly hired communications director Anthony Scaramucci promised “dramatic action” to stop the leaking during an interview with Fox News‘ Chris Wallace.

“[W]e have to get the leaks stopped. If we don’t get them stopped… I’m a businessperson so I will take dramatic action to stop those leaks. … If the leaks don’t stop I’m going to pare down the staff because it’s just not right…. Something is going on inside the White House that the president does not like. We will fix it.”

In a separate interview with John Dickerson of CBS News, he was asked how he’ll deal with the leakers.

“They’re going to get fired,” he said. “I’m just going to make it very, very clear, okay? Tomorrow I’m going to have a staff meeting. And it’s going to be a very binary thing. I’m not going to make any prejudgments about anybody on that staff. If they want to stay on the staff, they’re going to stop leaking.”

As Axios noted further:

Scaramucci told Wallace that while he thinks some members of the press are stretching or making up stories, he wants to “engage” the mainstream media, adding that he wants to “de-escalate” tensions between the press and the White House.

Two things:

— Scaramucci is probably right that a great many stories are being fabricated, given the inordinate amount of fake news that’s been published over the last six months alone.

— As for “firing” leakers, great — how about prosecuting them instead, Mr. Scaramucci? If you really want to send a message, that’s the best way to do it.

I absolutely cannot wait. MSM ( AOHELL ) and its readers went pack of rabid hyena crazy over an old Trump comment, maybe they did, maybe they did not meddle in the 2016 election. Today, 7/23/2017 the comments ranged from lunatic name calling to impeach Trump to name calling of trumpanzies etc. who tried to comment in a constructive manner. Scaramucci will be an interesting addition to the WH staff. The leaks need to be plugged, irresponsible “tabloid reporting” stopped or at least reduced so our country can move forward.
