Leaks Increase During Trump Administration

Now . . . I’m not going to blame this on Trump. I might suggest that the issue is Liberals in cleared positions who think that their dislike of the administration justifies defying their obligation. Or we can blame it on increased efforts infiltrate our intelligence community.

But, no matter where you want to lay the blame, this drives home the issues facing those who are trying to investigate and adjudicate cleared personnel.


Sadly, this dangerous game is how Washington DC works. Lower level employees have higher risk as they may not have anything to fall back on. Several higher profile people lost clearances and jobs because they allowed their political views to influence their responsibilities. In short, “just DON’t do it.”
