On The Hunt: "We're Going to Find The Leakers And They're Going to Pay a Big Price"

As stories containing closely held intelligence details keep on coming, the White House and Congress have launched serious and expansive investigations into who is leaking information to the press.

While Press Secretary Sean Spicer said earlier this week former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn was asked to resign over an irreconcilable breach of trust, the issue of people inside government leaking damaging information for political purposes has been a main focus within the administration.

First, President Trump is livid. Over the past two days Trump has repeatedly called leaks a "criminal act" and said at the White House today, "We're going to find the leakers and they're going to pay a big price."

Leaking Confidential, or Classified information is a Crime, don't let anyone try to tell you it isn't.  We have become accustomed to the leaks cluttering the front pages of the rags called "News" papers, and we have accepted the leaks as good Journalism.  Well, it isn't.  They cover themselves by adding, "...the source will remain anonymous as he/she is not authorized to release the story".  If the source is not authorized, why is the press printing the story?  I, for one, find this ludicrous in that that would be classified as conspiracy; If one receives confidential, or classified information from someone that is not authorized, then prints it, that meets the definition of the crime of conspiracy, a Felony.  This is not news, it is a leak covered under the espionage acts.  Quit paying for and reading the news rags that report it.  They will stop as soon as it starts hitting their bottom line.

The FBI should start dragging some of these "reporters" that grab the unauthorized information and publicly release it.  Throw some of them in prison for the Felony charge of Conspiracy and you will see how quickly the leaks stop being reported in the "News".

Trump should have Sessions... select two or three high profile cases and then go after the Publisher, journalist and anyone on their staff that handled classified information... charging them with espionage, sedition and or treason... the case for treason should be the one's selected as that will certainly get everyone's attention.

Prosecute these reprobates... put them away Pres. Trump.

BRING IT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP...WE GOT YOUR BACK

I don't see how we will avoid blood in the streets this summer. Jail offenders and if they don't get the message jail them again. Back to law and order.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Go after these traitors, my gut says Soros Oslimball and Clinton have their embedded jihadist working as spy's in top intelligence agencies of the government. Surely their is a conspiracy to overthrow this government, the left is getting desperate that Trump will dismantled their infrastructure to do so. Then theirs the real possibility that they could be charged with high crimes and be severely punished. The possibility becomes greater every day Trump begins draining the swamp.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

LOIS LERNER -- the recent best example of what swamp most needs drained - the bureaucracy.

if President Trump is sincere in his pledge to drain the swamp, that's where his efforts will be most effective. The current reality of un-fireable political activists in key positions throughout the bureaucracy must end, Transferring or retiring them as 'punishment' doesn't accomplish a damn thing, other than putting the loyal political activist into another key position or living comfortably in their tax payer paid retirement..

If I was him I'd take this opportunity to focus on that - and probably start by de-unionizing federal employment - while at the same time putting some of them in jail for this incident.

But they can be discharged, if one is performing good honorable service keep them. If a person is not performing and becomes a threat or commits a crime send them to federal prison. Nobody is beyond the law, the problem is the justice dept needs to do their job. This is why I have such a problem with all politicians they are theatrical (performers) working to pacify us with one promise then another and another. I believe Trump is what he says but the rest are still professional politicians that have deep rooted friendships with those they would have to charge with crimes, bring to trial, sentence and imprison them. I doubt we will ever see that happen. A year from now you'll look back and see that compromise by the Justice Dept has persisted. All politicians have skeletons in their closets, dirt on their faces. Other than Trump tell me the last time any of us remember s a promise kept by a politican. Last, get yourselves ready it will be a bloody summer in America that's not a wish it's a prognostication. May the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob have mercy on America.

 we're in agreement on - This is why I have such a problem with all politicians they are theatrical (performers) working to pacify us with one promise then another and another.

I equate them to snake oil peddlers, doing exactly the same thing - peddling laws as the solution/ointment to cure all our problems. what a bunch of hooey.

----

no doubt the swamp the politicians reside in needs drained too, but my position is that what's going on right now demonstrates how the bureaucracy full of progressive political activists is the bigger problem. We have the means to shuffle the snake oil peddlers every 2-4-6 years, but a change of guard at that level still has the same bureaucracy in place.

btw -- you're not the 1st to tell me I'm wrong about 'un-fireable', but over the decades I've not seen even 1 Lois Lerner fired. If I did a search I think it'd be pretty easy to find many articles/documents in the news throughout the past decade or so discussing stuff like federal employees drawing pay for doing nothing at all, some for years, due to their being 'punished'. I'm no guru on the matter, but decades of observation tell me they're essentially unfireable.

You are correct, we are on the same page, I am focussed on a Justice Dept that could if it did its job, which it will not, could charge these people for their treasonous leaking but it will not happen. Hillary Clinton, Obama and all the rest stole money from the state Dept to the tune of 6 billion sold arms to our enemies, sold uranium to Russia, used a tax exempt charitable to wash money international on and on and FBI Director Comey, L.Lynch and now Jeff Sessions will I qurantee you not bring these people to justice.
I am totally fed up with this garbage Trump cannot do it alone. The GOP sets on there right thumb while sucking their left.
You do a fine job just like most TP activist, keep do what you do. Please overlook my rants, I get so angry with the lies of politicians and their failure to do their jobs. Listen to them on the TV, they are so absorbed with self, constantly stroking self, it's actually sickening. The Democrats are what they are, they're my sworn enemies justified by my oaths.
Republicans are getting close to that line in the sand for their cowards behavior of talk and no action, that is why I claim they will do nothing. All of them democrat or republican walking about all puffed up, look at me I'm so important.
I love our Country, I fear no man, I do fear trashing a nation that's foundation was a covenant with God. Politicians have given away what doesn't belong to them, that angers God. If for no other reason for Trump to retain my support and respect for him it is his unwavering support for Israel. We have the promise of God to be Blessed if we first stand with Israel.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

well said Phillip.

..and I don't intend to ignore your 'rants' or disapprove of your anger  ;' /   we're far too much in agreement to do that

9thA, I never was In disagreement with you I am angry at a Justice Dept that is doing nothing, past and present. Thank you, most of us here have very similar hearts.

Sessions had better start cleaning the Swamp very soon... or it won't happen at all. That will piss me off more than any single event.  Trump needs to kick butt... he must have an effective AG.

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
