A new Senate investigation suggests that the Trump administration is hit with one national security leak per day, according to Washington Free Beacon.

The present numbers are significantly worse than they were for Presidents George W. Bush or Barack Obama.

Check it out:

“Since President Trump assumed office, our nation has faced an unprecedented wave of potentially damaging leaks of information,” according to a new report published by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

“Under President Trump, leaks are flowing at the rate of one a day,” according to the report, which notes that “under President Trump’s predecessors, leaks of national security information were relatively rare.”

Sources both in and outside the White House believe these leaks are meant to undermine the administration and hinder its ability to do its job.

And now, some sources say the leaks are becoming increasingly more dangerous.

“Leaks with the capacity to damage national security flowed about seven times faster under President Trump than during President Obama’s and President George W. Bush’s first 126 days,” according to the Senate investigation.

“The Trump administration faced 125 leaked stories—one leak a day—containing information that is potentially damaging to national security under the standards laid out in a 2009 Executive Order signed by President Barack Obama,” according to the report, which examined open-source material published during the first months of the Trump administration.

The study revealed that “even a narrow search revealed leaks of comparable information during the Trump administration that were about seven times higher than the same period during the two previous administrations.”
