Last week, the Trump administration was forced to deal with multiple controversies.
Every day, it seemed, mainstream media outlets like the New York Times and Washington Post were breaking new stories. Every time, the stories were accusations about President Trump’s conduct from unnamed sources. Unsurprisingly, the media was all too happy to speculate on the various ways Trump could be impeached because of these stories.
Lost in all of the hysteria was an ever bigger story: someone close to the White House was leaking classified information to the press. Although the liberal media brushes this concern aside, the presence of a leak in the White House is a dangerous situation.
In the case of the Washington Post story that Trump revealed classified information in a meeting with the Russians, someone close to the administration leaked the information. Although the story turned out to be false, great damage was done. Carelessly making such a claim can damage our reputation with our allies, putting national security at risk.
