No reader of DL will be surprised to learn that the problem (according to the right-wing media) isn’t the illegal and treasonous activity of the Trump administration, but the real threats to the republic are the “low-life” civil servants who expose the illegal and treasonous activity of the Trump administration. They are the real bad guys. The bad hombres, Trump and the wing-nut media is going after. How successful Trump and his media will be in vilifying these people will depend entirely on how readily the objective (main stream? fake news?) media accepts that narrative.
Finally, the civil servants in question have no investigating authorities to leak information regarding the illegal activity of the Trump administration to. That is why they have gone to the media. That simple fact is completely lost on the Alt-Right media complex and lost on the legit news media for the most part.
This is Trump lapdog, Jason Chaffetz:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz told Fox News’ “The First 100 Days” Wednesday night that he would ask the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate leaks of classified information that led to the resignation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The Utah Republican told host Martha MacCallum that “no matter where you are on the political spectrum, you cannot have classified information migrating out into a non-classified setting.”
Here is Trump himself signaling a coming purge that will cleanse America’s intelligence community.
