White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is conducting security checks on staffers’ phones—confiscating and searching them in an attempt to discover who’s leaking information to the media, per Fox News.
Spicer told staff that these preliminary checks were “recess” compared to what a second round would be if the leaker wasn’t immediately identified.

Staffers had not only their work phones searched, but also whatever other electronics were on them when they entered Spicer’s office, according to Politico.
Ironically, Spicer’s warning about leaking quickly leaked to the press.
