Ever since Donald Trump took office, his White House has been plagued by a series of leaks. Now, Trump is finally making a huge move to put a stop to these leaks once and for all.
Right Wing News reported that rumors are swirling that a massive purge is about to take place in the Trump White House, as the president is planning a major shake-up among his communications team. Sources say that White House chief of staff John Kelly has already approved of a plan to purge some mid-level and junior aides in the hopes of finally ending the damning leaks. Some staffers will be fired, while others will be moved to different departments.
Junior communications staffer Kelly Sadler was just fired after she made a remark about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that was leaked to the press stating “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.” She said this during a meeting with a group of about two-dozen communications staffers shortly after McCain voiced his public opposition to President Trump’s pick for CIA director, Gina Haspel.
Once this was leaked, the White House moved fast to prevent future and further leaks by limiting invitations to President Trump’s daily communications meetings to a smaller group of advisers. The White House did not deny that Sadler made the statement, apologizing for any “discomfort” it may have caused.
“We respect Senator McCain’s service to our nation and he and his family are in our prayers during this difficult time,” the White House added.
A source close to the situation said that Sadler’s firing has made communication aides feel uneasy, as they higher ups “have made it clear nobody is safe no matter what.”
We can only hope that this purge will finally stop the leaks that have plagued Trump’s White House from day one of his presidency. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
