Karl Rove Revealed White House Staff Have Been Leaking Info For Weeks

Leaks make the world go round in the nation’s capital. People in political circles can easily get their message out there anonymously, and anxious reporters will gladly gobble up anything they are fed. That’s been readily apparent throughout the early days of the Trump administration, as leaks have sprouted with enough frequency that a gaggle of plumbers would be busy around the clock.

As The Hill reports, Karl Rove, former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, has a theory as to what’s going on. He’s placing the blame squarely on President Trump’s aides, and he’s adding more fuel to the fire on reports of infighting within the administration.

“These people have been leaking on each other for weeks,” Rove said during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News show “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Unnamed White House officials are dissing to reporters about other people inside the White House,” he continued.

If Rove is correct, the reports of divisiveness within the White House would appear to be pretty accurate. As opposed to sitting down like big boys and girls and hashing out their differences, some Trump aides feel the best course of action is to make the whole administration look incompetent by whining to the press.

“And while I think there is a tendency to exaggerate a little bit in the press, I think there's a lot behind this that’s real,” Rove continued. “Right now there's plenty of diversity of opinion, but there doesn't appear to be sufficient unity of purpose inside this White House,”

A diversity of opinion helps make the world go round, and it should make the administration even stronger. However, it doesn’t sound like that’s what’s happening. Rather, we have an internal power struggle that’s being played out in the press with all sorts of palace intrigue stories.

That’s both sad and troubling, and perhaps it’s time for the president to start cutting ties with those that are more concerned with their own personal narratives instead of that whole ‘Make America Great Again’ thing.
