Good Sunday evening to you, I’m Still reporting from Washington.
Earlier today, a site called GotNews broke a story that the White House Deputy Chief of Staff, Katie Walsh, who works directly for Rense Priebus, has been the source of several leaks to The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other MSM outlets.
According to a confidential GotNews source close to the president:
“Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press. The only question is whether or not she’s doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she’s doing it to advance herself in DC media circles.”
GotNews says that Walsh is close to Maggie Habberman, a reporter for The New York Times.
“Walsh would have significant access as she controls the president’s schedule. There’s also reportedly a trove of e-mails where Katie Walsh and Reince Priebus discuss how to rid themselves of Trump, according to a former #NeverTrump consultant.”
But ole Mr. Trump, he’s a smart one. He and his staff have been feeding Walsh fake information in order to discover the extent of her network.
“Walsh was a #NeverTrump Republican during the campaign. Neither Walsh nor her family were supporters during the campaign, says a source from Walsh’s hometown of St. Louis.”
It remains to be seen whether criminal charges will be persued against Walsh.
Tonight, the Gateway Pundit is quoting GotNews founder, Charles Johnson saying that he will not reveal his sources, but insisted that they are:
“100% reliable, I’m unwilling to reveal the primary White House sources, but Walsh was behind the leaks.”
I’m still reporting from Washington. Good evening.
