Trump Threatens ‘Cowards’ And ‘Traitors’ Leaking From White House: ‘We Will Find Out who They Are!’





President Trump took to Twitter to attack White House leakers after it emerged that his aide mocked Sen. John McCain’s brain cancer diagnosis, saying that “so-called leaks coming out of the White House are a massive over exaggeration put out by the Fake News Media” and warning “we will find out who [leakers] are!”

Trump tweeted: “The so-called leaks coming out of the White House are a massive over exaggeration put out by the Fake News Media in order to make us look as bad as possible. With that being said, leakers are traitors and cowards, and we will find out who they are!”




His remarks come days after reports emerged that White House aide Kelly Sadler said that Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) opposition to CIA director nominee Gina Haspel “doesn’t matter” because “he’s dying anyway.”

The White House has refused to offer a public apology for the remarks made during an internal meeting.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) told reporters Monday “an apology is appropriate … from the person who said that really dumb thing.”
