On February 19, 2017, The Gateway Pundit reported on White House Deputy Chief of Staff Katie Walsh.
Katie Walsh was then rumored to be leaking information from the Trump White House.
GotNews reported Sunday that one of the primary sources of the series of leaks that were designed to undermine the Trump Administration and his presidency have been coming from none other than #NeverTrumper Kate Walsh. She is being investigated as one of the primary persons of interest that have been distributing highly confidential information to sources such as The (Failing) New York Times, and others.
When TGP reached out to GotNews founder, Charles Johnson, for comment on the story he said that it was “100% reliable, I’m unwilling to reveal the primary White House sources, but Walsh was behind the leaks.”
“Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press,” says a source close to the president. “The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she’s doing it to advance herself in DC media circles.”
One source in particular stands out: Walsh is close to Maggie Habberman, a New York Times reporter who wrote fawning pro-Republican National Committee stories during the presidential election. Walsh has also planted stories in The Washington Post and Politico.
Walsh is referred to as “Madame President” in the White House, says a senior aide. “It isn’t a compliment.”
Walsh would have significant access as she controls the president’s schedule. There’s also reportedly a trove of e-mails where Katie Walsh and Reince Priebus discuss how to rid themselves of Trump, according to a former #NeverTrump consultant.
“The president and his allies have been deliberately feeding her fake information in order to find her network,” says a source close to the president’s family. “It’s been going well.”
Walsh was a #NeverTrump Republican during the campaign. Neither Walsh nor her family were supporters during the campaign, says a source from Walsh’s hometown of St. Louis.
A White House investigation is planned into Walsh, who couldn’t be reached for comment.
We received at least one call from a reliable anonymous DC source after our report confirming our allegations.
Katie Walsh was removed from the White House this week.
The Independent reported:
A top aide to President Donald Trump is leaving his administration to join a pro-Trump group.
Deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh said she decided to make the move to the America First Policies group after the Trump-backed health care bill failed last week to amass enough support to clear the House.
White House officials said legislators were being pressured by outside groups that opposed the bill, through voter phone calls and television advertisements, with no pushback from several existing Trump organisations.
“It was abundantly clear that we didn’t have air cover when it came to calls coming into lawmakers,” said White House chief of staff Reince Priebus. “No one can fix this problem better than Katie.”
Ms Walsh, who served under Mr Priebus at the Republican National Committee, the Trump campaign and the White House, will be a senior adviser to America First Policies. The group is run by Mr Trump’s former data and digital director Brad Parscale.
Mr Priebus and other White House officials stressed that Ms Walsh was the one who decided to leave the administration.
