Trey Yingst of One America News Network is reporting that President Trump will fire multiple people after three individuals have been identified as the source of information on leaking classified information.
The report indicates that these staffers are not political appointees and they can, in fact, be fired at any time by President Donald Trump. However, their careers within the federal government who were “burrowed” into Civil Service before Obama’s term ended would, in most cases, have to go through a civil service procedure before they can actually be terminated.
As written for The Gateway Pundit by Kristinn Taylor:
Trump’s White House has been beset by unprecedented leaking of classified information, including details of Trump’s phone calls and Oval Office meetings with foreign leaders.
Trump is scheduled to return from a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe on Saturday.
Top Trump advisers Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategistSteve Bannon came back from the Middle East early on Sunday. The U.K. Daily Mail reported the White House said Priebus left the trip early for the rollout of Trump’s budget plan this week, however, the Mail reported that no reason was given for Bannon’s early departure.
SCOOP: Three White House staffers have been identified for leaking classified info. POTUS will fire ‘multiple people’ when he returns to DC.
SCOOP INFO: I’m told the names of the leakers are being run by the Office of Government Ethics, which is why they aren’t immediately fired
Names are given to the Office of Government ethics, who will investigate further
SCOOP INFO: I asked one source why the leakers names would be presented to the Office of Government Ethics. “This is criminal,” they said.
—> Office of Government Ethics is not able to prosecute anyone. They will advise the White House on how to proceed with leakers, I’m told.”
