(National Sentinel) ‘You’re Fired’: In recent days Karl Rove, chief political advisor to George W. Bush, commented that he’s never seen the amount of disloyal leaking that has occurred since President Donald J. Trump took office.
It’s a disgrace, he said, and it’s very bad for the president who does not deserve to be treated that way.
Trump agrees and so do those closest to him.
In fact, the president is so sick and tired of all the leaking there is a mass purge of White House personnel coming, according to insider sources.
As The Western Journal reports:
A continuing leak of internal information from within the White House is leading toward a major staff shakeup inside the Trump administration’s communications department, according to new reports.
Fox News cited multiple sources with knowledge of private meetings in which senior staffers have hinted at an upcoming purge targeting those leaking confidential information to the media.
The renewed focus on a persistent problem within this White House comes amid continuing fallout over insensitive comments reportedly made during a meeting last week. Following reports of communications aide Kelly Sadler’s crass characterization of Sen. John McCain’s battle with brain cancer, many demanded a public apology that never came.
Instead, reports indicated the communications department focused its attention on stemming the tide of leaks.
Multiple sources present for a subsequent meeting fulfilled White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’ prediction about her own comments.
“I am sure this conversation is going to leak, too,” she was quoted as telling staffers. “And that’s just disgusting.”
And it did.
“There are all kinds of leaks,” said presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway in an interview this week. “Some leaks exist to hurt, I guess, colleagues; some leaks exist because they disagree with the policies that are being put forth. But none of them are helpful.”
She added that often the leaks themselves are not as important as the motivation behind White House staffers doing the leaking.
“Something else that’s gone on in this White House but not as badly as it was at the beginning, where it’s not so much leaking as using the media to shiv each other, and that was going on quite a bit at the beginning of this administration and it’s less so now,” she said.
Conway was asked if she believes the leak of Sadler’s comments would prompt a staff shake-up at the White House.
“I do, actually,” Conway said. “Yes, I do.”
