Trump conducts his own sting operation to ensnare intelligence briefers – and says he caught them leaking  – Daily Mail

  • President-elect Donald Trump described a sting operation he says he conducted after becoming infuriated by a series of leaks about his own classified briefings
  • He says he decided to tell no one about a particular secret briefing, shielding even his longtime scheduling aide, Rhona Graff, to rule out the possibility leaks were coming from his staff
  • When word got out anyway, Trump concluded it was the intelligence community who was putting out information
  • He described the operation he conducted after suggesting intelligence officials leaked a fake dirty dossier of information about him

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.

‘I’ll tell you what does happen. I have many meetings with intelligence. And every time I meet, people are reading about it,’ Trump complained.

‘Somebody’s leaking them out,’ Trump said, after inveighing against leaks generally.

‘So I said, “Maybe it’s my office. Maybe my office.” Because I’ve got a lot of people … Maybe it’s them?’

‘What I did, is I said I won’t tell anyone. I’m going to have a meeting, and I won’t tell anybody about my meeting with intelligence,’ Trump continued.

He even shielded one of his closest aides from word of the meeting. 

‘Nobody knew – not even Rhona, my executive assistant for years. She didn’t know – I didn’t tell her. Nobody knew,’ Trump continued – drawing laughter from collected family members and staff.

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.

Unfortunately, the Daily Mail is the only rag that’s commented on this story and the language they use is extremely biased, but the story is significant enough that I felt compelled to post it anyway.  This story is another consequence of the Shadow Government and their preference for puppets.  The saddest thing in all of this is that with Trump, there’s a chance to expose and remove this Shadow Government and about a third of the people in this country are too stupid to see it.  Memo to those people:  The Deep State/Shadow Government doesn’t play Democrats vs. Republicans.  They play them vs. you.
