David Brooks: W.H. Leaks Coming from Staff Who ‘Have Turned Against’ Trump
BROOKS: "The most interesting thing is that the White House staff and the people under Donald Trump at least some portion of them, seem to have turned against Donald Trump. I have not talked to the reporters that broke this story, but if I read it correctly, some senior White House official with top secret clearance read the readout to a reporter. That's breaking the law, that means you need to be Deep Throat, you need to undermine this guy, you need to get the truth out about this guy. And in the Nixon administration, there were a couple of deep throats, there was a guy off in the FBI, who was willing to leak. But in this administration, they seem to be in every closet, and behind every desk, I'm exaggerating a little -- but there are squads of deep throats. And so that means this story's not only a legal investigation it is a dissolution of an administration."
