This weekend, Energy Secretary Rick Perry made a powerful proclamation on ‘Fox & Friends’ about officials within the White House leaking sensitive information to the press: “Leave.”
“I’ll be pretty blunt about it,” Perry said on Fox News. “Those that want to govern through leaking, go to work somewhere else.”
Perry’s statements echo similar sentiments from other Republicans growing tired of government employees leaking private intel to the mainstream media. Publications such as The New York Times and The Washington Post have been releasing numerous negative stories about the Trump administration through “unnamed sources.”
Much of this leaked information revolves around the alleged dealings between President Trump and Russia. Sources are claiming Trump colluded with multiple Russian officials in the past few weeks, and other sources are claiming Trump attempted to strong arm former FBI Director James Comey regarding possible investigations into himself and former national security adviser Mike Flynn.
Secretary Perry believes the issue can be resolved if the right people are put in these coveted positions. “Number one, have a cadre of people around you that are loyal, that believe in your philosophy, want to go where you want to go,” Perry asserted.
