JUST IN: Trump set to make MAJOR staff changes…

When it came to information leaking out of the White House – the calls were coming from inside the house.

At least three people within the White House have been identified as constant leakers of classified information thus far, and hearing the words “you’re fired” is going to be the last of their worries.

According to the Daily Wire“CBS News has confirmed from two sources that three leakers of classified information at the White House have been identified and are expected to be fired,” CBS News reported this week, adding, “Officials within the Trump White House believe leaks of Mr. Trump’s conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are a ‘deliberate attempt’ by officials who are holdovers from President Obama’s administration and are trying to damage the Trump presidency.”

A smaller news org, One America News Network, was the first to break the story, reporting that the identities of three suspected White House leakers have been handed over to authorities.

Reporter Trey Yingst wrote on Twitter that the suspected leakers had been identified:

While in the midst of his foreign trip, Trump issued a statement, which came shortly after a terror attack in Manchester, England, killed 22 people — many children and teenagers:

“The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling. These leaks have been going on for a long time and my Administration will get to the bottom of this. The leaks of sensitive information pose a grave threat to our national security. I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Trump wrote.

Early Sunday morning, Trump tweeted this out:

It’s a bit confusing, as the White House is deeming the leaks treasonous while Trump is branding them fake news. Of course, the reality could be a combination of both. It’s really not hard to get away with saying whatever you want when the media has no problem citing you as an “anonymous source.”

Too bad Trump can’t fire the media too.
