Since the outset of President Donald Trump’s time in office, the White House has been dealing with a flood of internal leaks that have caused some serious political headaches for the Trump administration.
Despite Trump’s efforts, none of the leakers have been discovered and the leaks continue to flow. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends” and did not mince words about what he thinks should be done to the leakers.
“I want to draw a distinction,” Gingrich explained. “There’s political garbage — there are people who go across to the Starbucks near the White House, and they sit and they tell insider stories.”
“That’s unfortunate,” he continued. “And you ought to fire them if you can find them, but that’s not the same as violating the secrecy acts. People who violate the secrecy acts ought to go to jail.”
Gingrich is exactly right. While some leaking from a political administration is to be expected, certain leaks out of the Trump White House contained classified information that could or already has done damage to the country’s national security.
“What happened with the Manchester information, for example, after the bombing in Manchester, undermined the British investigation, weakened our relationship to our allies, and is dangerous,” Gingrich stated.
“Whoever leaked that should go to jail. Now, you start putting a few people in jail, you’ll see the leaks dry up dramatically,” he added.
Putting people in jail certainly is a good idea for some of these leaks, the only problem is in order to put people in jail you actually need to find the people leaking the information.
Unfortunately, given the media’s utter hatred for Trump, it is impossible to know if the stories from “anonymous sources” are in fact total fabrications, or if reliable sources are actually talking to the media.

Hopefully the Trump administration has a plan to expunge the White House of these leakers before they do some serious damage. The administration can’t continue to have these leaks flooding out and expect to effectively enact its agenda over the next four years.
