Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
During his press conference Sunday morning following his announcement of the U.S. military operation to take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, President Trump said some congressional leaders were pre-briefed on the operation but not others:
“We notified some; others are being notified as I speak,” Trump said.
“We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before,” Trump said. “There is no country in the world that leaks like we do and Washington is a leaking machine.”
Trump said that U.S. forces would have been placed in greater danger due to leaks in Washington tipping off the terrorists.
“A leak could have caused the death of all of them,” Trump said.
It has now been confirmed that, among those who the White House and Pentagon chose not to brief were San Fran Nan and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff. The Democrat toady news media and Twitter Perpetual Outrage Mob are naturally going berserk over this revelation, but the truth is that it is completely justified, and very likely prevented news of the operation being leaked to the New York Times and CNN in advance.
Either of those media outlets has proved time after time that they would have no hesitation whatsoever to putting U.S. military lives in jeopardy if it meant scoring political points for their Democrat masters. Does anyone outside of the Democrat/media axis propaganda really think either Pelosi or Schiff could be trusted to hold this information secret?
Not a chance in the world, if they decided that leaking it was to their political advantage. So the President and his advisors were right to refuse to brief these seditious opponents in advance, for the sake of keeping the military personnel involved safe. Russian leader Vladimir Putin and leaders of the Syrian government could be trusted to hold the information confidential, but not the Democrat leaders in the United States congress.
This is a sad reality, but it is the reality in which the Democrats and their media toadies are forcing us all to live.
That is all.
