SARA CARTER: Mystery Leaker Of Trump-Putin Phone Call Could Be In World Of Trouble

The White House official behind the leak detailing a memo written for President Trump urging him not to congratulate Russia’s President Vladimir Putin on winning re-election could face criminal charges, Sara Carter reports. 

Sara Carter reports:

This was the specific warning President Trump’s national security advisors allegedly put in his notecards Tuesday before he called Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on a reelection that has been scrutinized throughout the world, according to sources who spoke to The Washington Post. […]

Trump, along with other senior White House staff, believe it was an inside leak and suspect it was coming from National Security Council staff, sources with knowledge stated. […]

White House officials will investigate the leaks and a senior White House Official told this reporter in a statement, “If this story is accurate, that means someone leaked the President’s briefing papers. Leaking such information is a fireable offense and likely illegal.”

GOP insider Arthur Schwartz fingered National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and aides Ylli and Ylber Bajraktari as the potential leakers.

 

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) called on the leakers to be fired immediately.

“Any free agent leaker(s) on @realDonaldTrump‘s National Security Council w/their own agenda/vision for Presidency & America need to be tossed to curb in a NY minute. The “what would @brhodes want me to do” attitude by some in NSC is a disease easily curable,” Zeldin tweeted.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said Wednesday that the leak “had to,” come from Trump’s national security team.
