Bevan: Trump Is Right To Be Angry About Coordinated Misinformaton Campaign Of Leaks

Friday, February 17, 2017

RCP co-founder and executive editor Tom Bevan responds to the CIA denying today’s Wall Street Journalreport that the Agency has ever withheld information from the president.

“This is the problem,” Bevan said. “Give the Wall Street Journal reporters some credit, they didn’t just make this up out of whole cloth, somebody told it to them.”

“There’s a lot of this misinformation going around,” he said. “And I think Trump is rightly aggravated and frustrated by the fact that there is a coordinated campaign of leaks that are out there –some of them classified, some of them not, some of them just rumor-mill stuff– all intended to damage him and undermine his presidency.”
