CNN: Trump administration leaks are ‘cries for help’ from panicked officials

Published

on

The first three weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency have generated a staggering number of anonymous leaks, revealing information that’s credited in part with forcing National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to resign.

On Tuesday, the President took to Twitter to lament that state of affairs, writing, “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?”

In the clip below, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer points out that the President’s complaint is a drastic departure from his praise of Wikileaks during the campaign, prompting reporter Brian Stelter to note that the President is learning, perhaps the hard way, the difference between campaigning and governing.

Stelter then pointed out that the staggering number of leaks is the result of “cries for help” by government officials battered by the administration. “In some cases this is a form of dissent,” Stelter says.

Asked about the offensive chant by ABC White House reporter Jonathan Karl  who pressed the president with “Why didn’t you ask them to stop saying it?” Trump answered, “Number one, I think I did. I started speaking very quickly.”

He then added, “I disagree with it, by the way. But it was quite a chant and I felt a little bit badly about it but I will say this, I did and I started speaking very quickly, I started rather fast as you probably noticed.”
