Trump loved leaks before he hated them
Days after handling national security crisis in a Mar-a-Lago dining area, Trump decries “illegal leaks.”
In October, Trump proclaimed his love for leaks during a rally in Pennsylvania.
“I love Wikileaks,” Trump said, while the crowd chanted, “Lock her up.”
“It’s amazing how nothing is secret today when you talk about the Internet,” he added, before reading the contents of emails stolen from the Clinton campaign and leaked to Wikileaks.
Four months later, Trump is now singing a very different tune. In response to a stream of leaks that prompted the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Monday night, Trump — ignoring the scandal surrounding his administration’s ties with Russia — tweeted that the “real story here” is the the leaks.
