It seems like the last task of outgoing President Barack Obama is to undermine President-elect Trump.
It’s true the two don’t like each other; obviously having different political views would make them at odds on many issues. Obama is particularly concerned about the imminent repeal of the Affordable Healthcare Act, perhaps the only lasting legacy of his time in office.
But in this country an outgoing President is to ensure a seamless transition for the President-elect, as President Bush did for Obama in 2008.
Not so with Obama. Under this leadership, the CIA and other agencies have made claims that Russia interfered with our election — despite producing evidence. In addition to this, intelligence briefings, meant only for the President-elect, have been leaked to the press.
Needless to say, Trump has had enough.
From Daily Mail:
President-elect Donald Trump, after growing suspicious that intelligence officials were leaking news about their classified briefings with him, says he conducted a sting operation to try to prove top spies were behind the leaks.
Trump revealed the extraordinary scheme to try to entrap the senior spies in a furious press conference where he suggested the intelligence community had been behind salacious and totally unproven allegations against him.
‘I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press. First of all, it’s illegal. These are classified and certified meetings and reports,’ Trump said during a press conference at Trump Tower – his first since getting elected.
Then he revealed the details of the stealthy sting he says he conducted on the nation’s senior spooks.
Trump decided to hold a secret meeting, where even his closest staff and team members were not aware of. Even though the meeting was meant to be a secret, word got out anyway.
Having set the trap, Trump says the word leaked anyway.
‘The meeting was held. They left, and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting. So, I don’t want that. It’s very unfair to the country. It’s very unfair to our country what’s happening,’ he said.
So it seems Trump has discovered the source of the leaks, or at least has strong evidence as to whom is committing this illegal act. It won’t be long before we find out just who is to blame and who is to get the axe.
