‘Furious’ Trump has unleashed the White House IT department to track down leaker of embarrassing ‘executive time’ daily schedule

Published

on

President Donald Trump is “infuriated” with the constant leaks pouring out of the White House and approved of an IT investigation to find out who the leaker is, reported Politico.

Trump’s personal schedule was leaked and showed that he had an unprecedented amount of “executive time” that included vague details about what he actually does. The president was scrutinized for using the large gaps of the time to do nothing except watch cable news.

“It’s unprofessional to be trusted with information that is not intended to be publicly disclosed and then discloses it, whether it’s related to the president, related to your co-workers or your office, it’s just not professional behavior,” the official told Politico.

The official went on to explain that whoever leaked the personal information should not be trusted with access to more sensitive and private documents.

“We all have much bigger things to worry about and much bigger things that are going on. so it’s not that big of a deal. but it’s more just unnecessary and it was just a petty thing to do,” they explained. “If you’re leaking the schedule, what else could you be leaking or what other information?”

Officials did not reveal who the leaker was although they feel as if they are close.

“Both career and political staff receive the daily public schedule, but I want to be very careful that we don’t try anyone in the press,” said one of the officials.

The White House has sought to seek out the leakers in the past, but have failed to identify a person.

“It’s a familiar position for the Trump White House, which has pledged to root out leakers in the past — most recently after a New York Times op-ed penned last year by a senior administration official identified only as ‘part of the resistance inside the Trump administration.’ In the wake of the op-ed’s publication, the White House embarked on a search for the official that has yet to turn up the culprit,” the report said.

The search was approved by the acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. A White House spokesperson has not responded to a Politico’s request for comment.

Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to "try to interfere" in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC's national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
