Since Trump took office, liberals have been causing all kinds of chaos to get him out of office. Most recently, an NSA contractor named Reality Winner allegedly leaked a top-secret report to journalists. She claimed she was trying to help the “resistance” against President Trump.
The amount of leaks within the government is on the rise. According to a report released by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, it seems some are going so far as to commit treason — leaking classified information on a daily basis.

Senator Johnson released a report revealing the shocking consistency and the extent of leaks during Trump’s time in office: “Under President Trump’s predecessors, leaks of national security information were relatively rare […]. Under President Trump, leaks are flowing at the rate of one a day.” Johnson explains that leaks in the Trump administration are seven times higher than the same period of service of Bush and Obama.
Most opponents of Trump claim the leaks are related to the ongoing investigation into Trump and possible “collusion” with Russia during the 2016 election. According to the report, however, the leakers are revealing anything that could cripple Trump’s administration, even at the cost of national security.
The report continues that “the leak frenzy has gone far beyond the Kremlin and has extended to other sensitive information that could harm national security. President Trump’s private conversations with other foreign leaders have shown up in the press, while secret operations targeting America’s deadly adversaries were exposed in detail.”
So far, the leaks have resulted in the resignation of Trump’s first National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, and also caused tension between the U.S. and one of her allies. “One leak, about the investigation of a terrorist attack, caused a diplomatic incident between the United States and a close ally,” Johnson’s report reads.
These leaks of highly classified information both online and to the press have led Trump to take measures to expose the moles and limit the spread of sensitive information. His efforts have led to claims that he is attempting to create paranoia and fear in the intelligence community. It’s as if liberals believe the leakers are doing Americans a great service by trying to handicap the president they didn’t want in office, not realizing the danger it puts us all in.
The report dismisses the notion that leaks are somehow a “good” thing, saying, “The commander-in-chief needs to effectively manage U.S. security, intelligence operations and foreign relations without worrying that his most private calls and deliberations will be outed for the entire world to see.”
It seems the anti-Trump crowd is so consumed with their “resistance” efforts and getting him out of office, that they’ve put our nation at risk. Members of Obama’s ‘deep state’ within various departments, including the intelligence and security communities, are firing with both barrels loaded to provide Trump’s opponents with whatever they need to stop him, and they’re not stopping to consider the consequences.
The release of classified information that puts our nation at risk is literally a criminal act, and in some cases, treason. The left has become so obsessed with opposing Trump, claiming his influence is dangerous for America, that they are committing treason and putting our lives in danger to stop him. What’s more dangerous for our country? A man working hard to provide jobs, repeal and replace Obamacare, provide tax cuts, and eliminate ISIS, or a political party exposing the U.S. to terrorism simply because they didn’t get their way?
