At a Young Republicans event this week at the Capitol Hill Club, former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone gave a hint who he believes is responsible for leaks coming from the White House.
Stone was questioned by a member of a Democratic opposition research group, American Bridge, who asked him, “Do you think it was someone in the White House, in the Republican Party, who leaked Don Jr.’s emails to the New York Times?”
“Yes,” Stone responded.
She quizzed him further, “Do you have any idea who it might have been?”
“Yes,” Stone said, still not giving any information, only adding, “I can’t tell you,” when she wouldn’t give up.
Finally, he gave her a tip, saying only, “Their initials are J.K.”
The Independent Journal Review published a list of possible names who have those initials:
- John Kelly – Secretary of Homeland Security
- Jeremy Katz – Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council and Economic Policy
- Jared Kushner – Senior Adviser to the President, and President Trump’s son-in-law
IJR points out that the woman questioning Stone incorrectly said Don Jr.’s emails were leaked “today,” when in fact the emails were leaked two weeks ago, which the New York Times had intended to drip out a few at a time, but once they started, Trump Jr. beat them to it by releasing the entire email chain himself on Tuesday.
