Leaker crackdown sounds like military state at the WH

"Despite active efforts to flush out administration leakers — including machines used to detect unauthorized cell phones in the West Wing — ... Trump and his senior aides haven't yet been able to stem the flow of damaging information," CNN's Kaitlan Collins writes:

"The White House banned the use of personal cell phones [including Apple Watches] in the West Wing in January. ... Officials now either leave their personal devices in their cars, or ... deposit them in lockers that have been installed at West Wing entrances."

"Sources said it's common to find several staffers huddled around the lockers throughout the day ... The lockers buzz and chirp constantly from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday."

"Sweeps are carried out to track down personal devices that have made it ... into the building. ... [M]en dressed in suits and carrying large handheld devices have been seen roaming the halls of the West Wing, moving from room to room, scouring the place for devices that aren't government-issued."

"If one is detected, one of the men will ask those in the room if someone forgot to put their phone away. ... f no one says they have a phone, the men begin searching the room."

"[A] group of lawmakers was waiting for the President in the West Wing while a sweep was being carried out. The device picked up a Samsung Galaxy, which was in the pocket of one of the visiting lawmakers."

We'll see if there are any leaks while she's in the hospital.

I suspect it's all silly theater to keep the Toddler In Chief happy. After all, he referred to his own staffers as "traitors". Which... is actually not far from the truth, as they are enabling high crimes and treason by the President and his crime family.

Is Nixon's old tape system still installed? He could use that to defend himself when the leakers lie.

The other funny thing to remember is the whole attempt at making staffers sign NDA's. Right out of the scummy Trump playbook.

But.. .it's ILLEGAL to do that to actual government employee

With that being said, leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will find out who they are!

I would think quite the opposite. The leakers are heroes that are trying to prevent the tyranny associated with the Trump regime. The fact that he is making such a public effort to squelch the conversation regarding the White House should make people very scared.

For some reason it doesn't.

I'm sorry, this comes under the "reprimanded for trying to kill Hitler' category.

This all seems to be an admission that the leaks are true, and the "Fake news and their unnamed sources" are getting the stories correct, and their sources are credible.

Also noticed that the Rogue POTUS Staff twitter feed has become more active after being dormant for many many months.
