If there’s one thing that speaks to the inherent corruption and evil in government, it’s the relentless leaks from the deep state aimed at taking down President Donald Trump.

God Emperor Trump

Various strategies have been employed by the Trump administration, including most famously the insertion of Anthony Scaramucci to oust Reince Preibus.

But the deep state shills keep plugging along, leaking classified government information with zero regard to ethics or the well-being of the citizens they are supposed to serve.

One possible solution to this has been proposed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as Axios reports:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told associates he wants to put the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to root out leakers. It’s unclear whether this will ever happen, but Sessions floated the idea to multiple people, as recently as last month.

Sessions’ idea is to do a one-time, one-issue, polygraph test of everyone on the NSC staff. Interrogators would sit down with every single NSC staffer (there’s more than 100 of them), and ask them, individually, what they know about the leaks of transcripts of the president’s phone calls with foreign leaders. Sessions suspects those leaks came from within the NSC, and thinks that a polygraph test — at the very least — would scare them out of leaking again.

Sessions has told associates he likes the idea of targeting the foreign leader phone calls because there’s a small enough universe of people who would have had access to these transcripts. Also, the idea that the President of the United States can’t have private conversations with foreign leaders was a bridge too far, even for Democrats.”

It’s a bold strategy, but desperate times often call for desperate measures.

Stop A Commie

Sessions has already proposed using subpoenas to get reporters to identify their anonymous information sources, as the Daily Caller has reported:

“Sessions has been under heavy pressure from President Trump to root out leakers within the federal government. The Trump administration, more than its predecessors, has been swamped with leaks of classified information about topics ranging from the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the election to Trump’s classified conversations with foreign leaders.

In response to that onslaught of leaks, Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced on Aug. 4 that the Justice Department would be forming a task force to root out leakers. Sessions also suggested that investigators would subpoena reporters in order to identify their information sources.”

Whether these attempts to achieve transparency will actually be put into motion or blocked by government lawyers is anyone’s guess, but one has to empathize with the Attorney General’s frustration as leaks continue to spring in the metaphorical pipelines of classified information in Washington.
