REPORT: Trump Deliberately Kept Priebus in the Dark About Comey Firing to Prevent Leaks

A new report claims that Trump not only fired Comey to send a message to McCain, but that Trump kept the news of his decision to fire Comey from Reince Priebus and Press Secretary, Sean Spicer to avoid leaks to the press.

And what do you know? No leaks! Hmmmm

Via Got News:

President Donald J. Trump fired now-former FBI Director James Comey to send a message to Senator John McCain, sources close to the White House confirm. Comey’s firing is a direct rebuke to McCain’s control over the nation’s defense, White House staffers confirm.

Earlier this year, McCain went after Trump with widely discredited opposition research that he immediately shared with Comey, his longtime friend.

Comey worked with McCain to go after businessman Jack Abramoff after Abramoff stopped McCain from winning the Republican Primary in 2000.

McCain has since been working with FBI Director Comey to help undermine President Trump since Trump was elected.

There’s a method to McCain’s madness, as McCain has used his position as chairman on the U.S. Senate Armed Services to veto Trump’s national defense picks.

“McCain has shot down two offers for Army Secretary from Trump,” our source notes.

McCain has been a persistent nuisance ever since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.

The FBI firing move, which did not leak, was carried out by White House counsel Don McGahn and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. President Trump deliberately kept Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer in the dark to keep them from leaking.

This isn’t the first time that Reince Priebus has been suspected of being a part of a source of leaking info to the press. TGP reported on the story of the Kate Walsh leaks with perhaps Priebus’ involvement back in February of this year.

Independent journalist, Mike Cernovich who broke the Susan Rice unmasking bombshell even commented on Sean Spicer being in the dark about Comey’s firing which is why he didn’t do a press conference today.
