Krauthammer on Leaks: 'It's a Loyalty Problem Inside the White House'
On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer said the leaks coming out of President Donald Trump's White House signify a loyalty problem for the president within his own administration.
He pointed out that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed that the real story isn't what happened during Trump's classified conversations with Russian officials, but the fact that someone within the White House leaked those classified conversations.
Krauthammer said Spicer's remarks were "inadvertently self-indicting" for the administration.
"After all, the idea that journalists are going to receive leaks, it's a constant. Journalists are always ready to pick up the phone," Krauthammer said. "If he's saying we have a real problem here with leaks, what we're talking about, what's unusual, is the Niagara of leaks coming out of this White House."
He said the New York Times report that Trump told Russian officials he fired former FBI Director James Comey because he was a "nut job," and that doing so eased the pressure of the Russia investigation, had to originate from someone who was present for the meeting and who is a member of Trump's inner circle.
"The problem here is an inner circle of people who have lost faith or are betraying or whatever," Krauthammer said. "But it's certainly not a leak problem that ought to interest us. It's a loyalty problem inside the White House."
