The Trump Administration has been plagued by protests, demonstrations, and leaks since the billionaire’s victory on November 8th. This week, President Trump said Obama and his former aides are behind the attacks.
“I think that President Obama’s behind it because his people are certainly behind it,” said Trump this week on Fox and Friends.
“And some of the leaks possibly come from that group… which are very serious leaks, because they’re very bad in terms of national security.” Trump also believes that Obama is behind the town hall protests Republicans are seeing throughout the country.
The Dems have been speaking out against GOP causes this month by haranguing Republican congressmen at town hall meetings. Groups like SEIU, Organizing for Action, and MoveOn.org have been working hard to fuel these protests.
Organizing for Action was formed directly from Obama’s campaign organization. The group has 14 professional organizers who are currently involved in teaching activists how to effectively vocalize their opposition.
Trump says he understands politics and expects this behavior to continue. “I’m not really surprised because I understand the way the world works. It’s politics. I mean I’m changing things that he’s [Obama] wanted to do.”
Trump provided no evidence to support his claims, but he isn’t the only one to accuse the former administration.
As reported by Fox News, a former senior intelligence official believes ex-CIA director John Brennan and former DNI James Clapper might be connected to the leaks.
“Leaks need to be investigated, but those investigations should be conducted in a manner that is not disparaging of our dedicated IC professionals, nor destructive to the entire community,” argues Clapper spokesman Shawn Turner.
Author’s Note: Obama himself may not be behind the leaks and protests, but those responsible are definitely “his people.”
It is not uncommon for political appointees to take high-level civil service jobs when their president leaves office. They are true believers and their causes will always be more important than following the rules. Trump would do well to search these people out.
