A new report is claiming that two top Trump officials, H.R. McMaster and Deena Powell, are behind many of the anti-Trump leaks coming out of the White House

It’s no secret that the Trump White House has a serious problem with leaks. Since President Donald J. Trump took office, individuals looking to damage this administration have fed stories to the liberal media on a regular basis.
Earlier this year, President Trump told Fox News that he believed Obama officials that still work in all areas of government are behind many of the leaks that plague the White House, many of which have serious national security implications.
While President Trump may be correct that disgruntled Obama officials may be trying to destroy this White House, a new report suggests that some of the anti-Trump leaks are coming from within his very own team.
From GOT News:
Two separate National Security Council sources have confirmed that National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster and Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell have been leaking negative material about President Donald J. Trump to their allies in the anti-Trump media, GotNews can exclusively report.
“It’s very hard when your boss, the President, and your boss, the NSC advisor, see the world so differently,” says one staffer, who opposes regime change in Syria.
Staffers on the National Security Council describe a culture of intimidation, especially for those who didn’t come in under McMaster and support the Trump campaign’s commitment to put America First.
“It’s like the Bush years never ended,” notes one staffer who didn’t come in under McMaster. “I didn’t sign up for this shit and the American people didn’t vote for it.”
For those of you that forgot, McMaster was brought into the White House following the firing of Michael Flynn. McMaster and Dina Powell are not Trump loyalists, and had no affiliation to the president prior to his election.
Given this important fact, it is not inconceivable to think that career government employees, even though they work for the president, would be behind the anti-Trump leaks that continue to flow out of this White House.
President Trump is not a typical politician, and McMaster and Powell are part of the D.C. establishment that Trump has attacked for years. If the president feels that these two are responsible for leaking to the press, he should fire them immediately. The liberal media forced him to fire Michael Flynn, and if this report is true, it’s no surprise that the left praised the choice of McMaster to serve as National Security Adviser.
