Trump Fuming After Stunning Leak Sends WH Into Finger-Pointing Craze: Report

One of the most startling revelations of this whole administration has left President Trump and his senior staff are furious and rattled.

CNN reported Wednesday that Trump is fuming that details of the president’s national security briefing materials telling him not to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin were leaked to the press, including a section in all-capital letters stating ‘DO NOT CONGRATULATE.'”

The speed and sensitivity of the leak prompted immediate finger-pointing within the administration, as aides reeled from a leak that could only have come from a small group of people, each of whom is trusted with sensitive national secrets.

Citing an unnamed source, CNN reported that the president was asking allies and outside advisers who they thought was responsible for the leak.

The source told the network that the incident has again given air to Trump’s long-held belief that members of his administration are actively working against him.

A White House official told the network that Kelly is furious that a confidential presidential briefing was made public just hours after the president’s phone call with Putin.

Kelly reportedly plans to address the leak on Wednesday as aides work to figure out how the information became public.

Other White House staffers are irritated by the most recent leak as well.

“This is unacceptable,” one White House official told CNN.

Social media users were quick to mock Trump on Twitter for appearing to directly ignore his advisers in order to celebrate Putin’s victory.

Trump faced a fierce backlash in Washington for the move, which was ripped by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and others as an “insult to every Russian citizen” who was denied the right to vote in a free and far election.

However, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say whether the Trump administration believed Putin’s victory was won fairly.

“We’re focused on our elections,” Sanders said during the press briefing on Tuesday. “We don’t get to dictate how other countries operate,” she added.
