Numerous sources have expressed “an unprecedented effort by the Obama administration” to undermine the Trump White House, per Washington Free Beacon.
Senior government officials who previously worked under President Obama have taken deliberate action to make life difficult for Trump officials, particularly by leaking information to mainstream media like the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Meanwhile, holdovers from the Obama administration are working to undermine the Trump administration’s agenda through efforts to alter official communications, a number of administration officials confirmed in conversations with the Washington Free Beacon…
The Free Beacon first reported on several portions of this effort earlier this year, including separate campaigns to undermine current CIA Director Mike Pompeo and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, both of whom were subjected to leaks aimed at undermining their credibility.
“We have members of the former administration at the highest levels who through their actions after January 20 have demonstrated their refusal to recognize the results of the general election,” one senior administration official told the Free Beacon. “They have pursued, organized, and managed a comprehensive subversion of the new administration.”
Instances that have affected the present administration have included the intentional tampering with White House communications materials, the leaking of an internal phone book, and obligatory internal policies regarding vacation payout that cost the Trump Administration millions of dollars.
“They put landmines everywhere,” according to one senior administration official.
Outside of the White House, meanwhile, a team of former Obama administration officials is working to subvert Trump’s agenda.
Former Obama administration officials such as Ben Rhodes, the architect of Obama’s pro-Iran press operation, and Colin Kahl, a senior national security adviser to former Vice President Joe Biden, have engaged in public efforts to “purge” the current White House of officials they disagree with.
Earlier this month, Kahl admitted on Twitter that he is seeking to provoke the firings of Trump’s handpicked team “in the West Wing,” including senior advisers Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka, and NSC leaders Michael Anton and KT McFarland.
As part of this effort, Kahl, Rhodes, and others have leaked damaging stories about these officials to allies in the media.
