Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said during an interview Tuesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that the administration officials who have been leaking information to The New York Times and The Washington Post are releasing the information in a “strategic” manner to undermine President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Meadows, the chair of the House Freedom Caucus, said that the latest leaks that led to former National Security Adviser Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s resignation are being used by the disgruntled Left to paint the president as “unfit” for office. And instead of focusing entirely on fulfilling his campaign promises, Trump’s fledgling administration has been bogged down with leaked allegations and several prominent missteps.
“The leaks probably concern me more so than anything,” Meadows told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham. “We need to also understand that these leaks are strategic. They’re trying to undermine the progress, whether it’s on immigration reform, whether it’s on other issues of national security implications, or foreign policy. It’s troubling.”
Flynn resigned after leaked details suggested the national security adviser had not been forthcoming when Vice President Mike Pence asked if Flynn had discussed sanctions with Russian officials prior to Trump’s assumption of the presidency.
