Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts on “the left’s war on President Trump and the left’s actions are arguably nearing sedition. President Trump today slammed leakers following the resignation of General Michael Flynn as his National Security Adviser.” The President tweeted “the real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!”
Dobbs notes, “The President also praised columnist Eli Lake who says bureaucrats and former Obama officials are possibly behind these leaks.” He plays a clip of the Lake comments, following that up with his view that, “I believe we’re witnessing a full on assault by the left here, the establishment, the left-wing national media, all working to bring down the Trump administration.”
“In fact, a new analysis shows,” says Dobbs, “the network morning shows devoting 18 times the amount of coverage to a so-called White House crisis compared to the illegal leaks. Republican leaders also failing to speak out forcefully against those leaks and the leakers. But the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is calling for the leakers, the nine unnamed current and former officials cited by the Washington Post, to be jailed.”
Dobbs goes further, saying, “President Trump, in my opinion, must end tenure for federal workers, must purge the State Department, and bring both the State Department and our intelligence community under the control of this President. To not do so and not do so quickly will only createmore opportunities for obstructionism and put in jeopardy the entire Trump agenda, if not Mr. Trump’s Presidency itself.
