Trump Freaks Out As FBI Leaks Threaten To Expose His Illegitimate Presidency

After the FBI refused to deny its investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia, the President threw one of his regular fits on Twitter, because this is how the leader of the free world really gets things done with intelligence agencies.

Friday morning, Trump exploded, “The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security ‘leakers’ that have permeated our government for a long time. They can’t even……find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW”

Oh, okay then.

Trump is getting nervous that the leaks are exposing his Russian ties, so he wants to go after the leakers. “FIND NOW” he typed in all caps, like the second grade leader that he is.

But it wasn’t so long ago that Trump declared he “loved” Wikileaks. Here he is loving leaks after Kremlin related spies gave WikiLeaks hacks of the Democrats:

CNN reported on Thursday that the FBI denied the Trump administration’s request to downplay media reports linking Donald Trump’s presidential campaign to Russia. This request is odd in and of itself, as it violates procedures, but what administration would ask the FBI to collude with it in hiding its unseemly ties to a foreign aggressor, while insulting the FBI? Not a good look.

But this is the Trump administration, so anything is possible. The more ignorant and obvious, the more likely.

“The direct communications between the White House and the FBI were unusual because of decade-old restrictions on such contacts. Such a request from the White House is a violation of procedures that limit communications with the FBI on pending investigations,” CNN reported.

Trump is mad that the FBI won’t do his bidding, which is to publicly deny his ties to Russia. But the leaks reveal the Trump campaign talking constantly to Russia before the election. Trump publicly told U.S. geopolitical adversary Russia to hack Hillary Clinton. That proved impossible, but the DNC was hacked and thus people close to Clinton were hacked.

These hacks made headlines that brought Trump much glee, as they distracted from his bragging about sexual assault and the women marching forward to out him as a predator, his myriad of financial conflicts of interests, failure to release his tax returns, failure to release a real medical report, constant lies, and violent, irresponsible rhetoric.

Then FBI Director James Comey came to the assist to essentially “leak” info on an investigation, claiming they had found more Clinton emails. So that was another leak that helped Trump win the 2016 election, even though the emails turned out to be nothing.

So it’s okay to paint Hillary Clinton with an unfair brush of guilt based on nothing, but don’t you dare report the truth about Donald Trump. Or, to put it another way, the interpersonal drama of the DNC is relevant and deserves to be hacked and leaked, but a president who has likely been compromised by a geopolitical foe and can’t even stand up to said adversary when their ship is hovering menacingly off of the Connecticut coast, this is not worth hacking and leaking.

Those are Republican values, party first no matter what, even when the country is in danger.

The spies warned that the leaks would keep on leaking as long as Trump keeps on lying. And so it is, and so it shall be, until the Titanic of a political crisis hits the Trump White House. Or so the spies say.
