New Kushner-Russia Story Stokes Concern of West Wing Leakers

We've seen that President Trump make changes to his staff when things are not operating as they should.  An other change may be coming soon.

Another Washington Post anonymously sourced hit job dropped on the Trump White House — this one about Jared Kushner asking the Russian ambassador for a “secret channel.” It landed just in time to greet the president upon his return from his first international trip and shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged to “put an end to” the rampant leaks coming from within the government. An administration plagued with leaks is now trying to determine whether recent damaging claims may have been fanned from within the West Wing.

The latest claim stems from a supposed meeting that President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had on Dec. 1 or 2 with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

  1. I'm beginning to wonder if it might not be a good idea to pass a law against news stories that cite "anonymous sources." Given the behavior of the MSM it's getting to the point where, since they won't police themselves, the law may have to do it.
