Game Changing: Conservative Pundit Claims To Know Two Of The White House Leakers

Leaks of information out of the White House have routinely plagued the Trump administration. Nearly all 17 months of President Trump’s time in the White House have been affected by a person or persons continuously leaking confidential information to members of the media.

Trump specifically addressed the leaks in a tweet on Monday. While he said the number of leaks and serverity is often blown out of proportion by news media, he said the threat is real and those leaking the information will be found out.

“The so-called leaks coming out of the White House are a massive over exaggeration put out by the Fake News Media in order to make us look as bad as possible. With that being said, leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will find out who they are!” Trump tweeted.

As ABC News reports, White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway said she expects to see some upcoming personnel changes amid the leaks:

The president did not specify to which leaks he was referring or who on his own staff he considered “traitors and cowards.” But the drama surrounding White House aide Kelly Sadler over the weekend highlighted the fact that the leaks to the press from inside the White House continue unabated despite Trump’s aggressive and public pledges to crack down on chatty staff.

In an interview with Fox News Monday night, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was asked if she thought there would be any personnel changes in the White House as a result of recent leaks, to which she replied, “I do actually, yes I do.”

“If you work at the pleasure of the president, like we all do here, and you have the privilege and the blessing of coming every day to work in this White House on behalf of the nation that we all love then you want to be competent, you want to be loyal and you ought to be able to reinforce the agenda that prevailed here,” Conway told host Martha MacCallum.

As Washington Examiner reports, those people leaking information may be doing so to get back at other officials, settling vendettas, or for other reasons:

White House leakers used a raft of excuses Sunday to justify sharing sensitive Trump administration information with reporters, reasons ranging from a way to settle personal scores to dealing with a confrontational work environment within the West Wing.

“The most common substantive leaks are the result of someone losing an internal policy debate,” a senior administration official told Axios. “By leaking the decision, the loser gets one last chance to kill it with blowback from the public, Congress, or even the President.”

The aide then likened working in the White House to “kind of like being in a never-ending ‘Mexican Standoff.'”

“Everyone has guns (leaks) pointed at each other and it’s only a matter of time before someone shoots. There’s rarely a peaceful conclusion so you might as well shoot first,” the official added.

Conservative pundit and founder of Turning Point USA Charlie Kirk has information on the matter – or so he claimed in a tweet on Tuesday.

“All leakers should be fired immediately from the White House. It is an honor and privilege to serve President @realDonaldTrump. By the way, I know at least 2 leakers by name. They should resign before I call them out publicly,” Kirk said.

Many of the people who responded requested that Kirk should reveal the names:
