In an effort to rule out the possibility that members of his own administration might be leaking classified information, President-elect Donald Trump conducted his own sting operation.
In a news conference Wednesday, Trump revealed that he had set a trap to prove that those in the intelligence community were responsible for the leaks.
He responded to a question from the crowd about allegations that his election team colluded with Russia during the election.
“I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press. First of all, it’s illegal,” Trump told reporters at Trump Tower. “These are classified and certified meetings and reports.”
Then he explained how he figured out how some senior agents had been working against him.
He said he considered the fact that it could be people on his team, so, in order to rule them out, he had an intelligence meeting and didn’t tell anyone. He didn’t even tell his executive assistant about the meeting.
“Nobody knew,” the president-elect continued.
“The meeting was held. They left, and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting,” he explained. “I don’t want that. It’s very unfair to the country. It’s very unfair to our country what’s happening.”
That’s one way to find out where leaks are coming from.

Trump is apparently intent on doing things his way, and this trap proved he will do what he feels he needs to do to get answers, undoubtedly an attitude that’s going to ruffle a lot of feathers in Washington.
