Donald Trump Approves Wide Spread Snooping Of Private Electronics
Donald Trump and his team have a leak somewhere in their midst. Someone is feeding the press information about things Donald Trump wants kept as far away from the American public as possible. It’s probably one of the people closest to Trump, but as Bipartisan Report recently shared, Sean Spicer resorted to shaking down his staff to make them prove that they have nothing to hide.
It’s not shocking news that Donald Trump gave his approval on the legal, but invasive checks of staffers’ mobile devices, according to CNN. Trump continues to be highly critical of the intelligence community, specifically where it’s his perception that they’re not doing enough to stop leaks from happening. Trump recently tweeted:
The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security “leakers” that have permeated our government for a long time. They can’t even……

Ironically, the steps Trump and Spicer are taking to prevent leaks and discover who the moles, even meetings about leaks, are being leaked. People took to Twitter to joke about the irony of it all:
@kylegriffin1 So the meeting about leaks, leaked?

@kylegriffin1 This certainly sounds like what you do when your administration is running like a well oiled machine.

@kylegriffin1 Spicegirl will soon be having his staff members sew their mouths shut and fingers together as part of a loyalty oath.

@kylegriffin1 @taninthesummer every time I “leak” or “leaks” or “leaker”, I see Trump in Moscow hotel, and I smile. Someone, please help me.

One user even offered an entire conspiracy theory that sounds crazy enough to be true:
@kylegriffin1 I suspect it’s actually Pence. He is positioning self to take over after GOP done w/using DJT for cover while they repeal ACA.

The level of dysfunction in the Trump administration is not healthy for the American people. If Trump and his staff have to go through such extreme measures to ensure that confidential information remains confidential, then at some point they need to do some self-reflection and think about the role they play in the drama that’s hindering this country from moving forward.
