Judge Nap: Leaks Mean Trump Must Fear His Own Intel Community
Judge Andrew Napolitano said on "Your World" today that President Trump must be concerned with the intelligence leaks that precipitated the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Flynn stepped down after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador before the inauguration.
Napolitano said that since Flynn's last military role was the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, he would know that his conversations with Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak were being recorded.
He thought he was being recorded by "American patriots, [not] American scoundrels," Napolitano said.
President Trump, in turn, must now fear his own intelligence officials because they have shown they are willing to get Flynn fired and the president and vice president humiliated, Napolitano said.
"They don't want somebody who knows where the bodies are buried running the NSA," Napolitano said, adding that now "the man in the White House has to fear, not work with and rely on, the intelligence community."
Napolitano noted a previous leak of a terse conversation between Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, calling it a "very dangerous situation."
