Even critics of President Trump seem to agree: The leakers have gone too far.
Many in Washington are expressing alarm that the transcripts of Trump’s phone calls with foreign leaders wereleaked to The Washington Post, warning that the action could undermine the U.S. government and imperil national security.
“This is beyond the pale and will have a chilling effect going forward on the ability of the commander in chief to have candid discussions with his counterparts,” Ned Price, a former National Security Council official under President Barack Obama, told The Hill.
These leaks cripple our nation’s ability to have necessarily frank conversations with other nations and with ourselves.
I’m thinking that if Trump would tell the truth the leaks about his lies might dry up. But that’s just a hunch.
Where’s the FBI?
