In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, the author of a new book on the Trump White House revealed that Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway is the top leaker in the administration and would spread "mean and ugly" lies about former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in an effort to undercut him.

According to author Ronald Kessler, who was on CNN's State of the Union to promote his new book, "The Trump White House," he had access to Trump's top aides, and said that Conway -- as well as Trump advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump -- are notorious for leaking scuttlebutt on their enemies.

Addressing Conway, Kessler targeted her as the number one leaker in the White House.

"While I was interviewing Kellyanne at the White House, she forgot that she was on the record," Kessler explained to the CNN host. "She started lashing into Reince Priebus. She said the most mean, cutting and obviously untrue things about Reince, and I didn't include them in the book because they were so unfair."

"She also lit into Jared and Ivanka, saying that they leak against Steve Bannon," he continued. "I know White House aides who have seen texts she has sent to other journalists, dissing her colleagues, leaking material."

"So if you wonder why there are so many leaks out of the White House, one reason is, Kellyanne is the number one leaker," he concluded.
