Last night, embattled President Trump took to Twitter to complain about the “leakers” who keep slipping embarrassing information about him to the press.
I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community…..

Their latest scoop was the revelation that Trump had given top-secret information to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, prompting a veritable firestorm of media controversy and fury from the public over yet another show of what was stunning incompetence at best – or damnable treason at worst.
Sportscaster turned political pundit Keith Olbermann was infuriated by Trump’s pathetic excuses and publicly raked him over the coals in this explosive tweet.
YOU are the leaker, you stupid, pea-brained, motherfucking traitor. RESIGN. https://t.co/ZRXevAonG9

Trump just committed a crime far beyond Hillary Clinton’s misguided but ultimately harmless mishandling of lightly classified information on her private email server. That pales in comparison to the President handing over secrets to a hostile foreign power.
It’s far past time we replaced Trump with a leader who is both deserving and capable of the title – and one we can trust to put America’s interests first.
