Report: White House in CHAOS, panicking to figure out who leaked NYT story…

Axios reporter Jonathan Swan reports that their sources in the White House say they’re in a panic and no one trusts anyone else.



Watch below:

Here’s what they said on Axios:

Their main areas of focus: 1) Who leaked this? Who is the mole? 2) How do we deal with this?

On the leaker:

  • Many of our White House sources are playing amateur detective, some with whackier theories than others, and some of which turn on people within the White House. Suspicion spread between people who worked in campaign and in White House, and while no one we’ve spoken to has any evidence to support their theories, it’s not stopping them from speculating.
  • It’s creating a very tense environment, and a number of administration officials can’t believe the level of foolishness required for Don Jr. to not only do this but to have such a conversation over email.
  • There’s a lot of internal anger over who gave this information to the NYT, which cited three people with knowledge of the emails in its report last night.

I know it seems like gossip, but Axios has proven that they have insider sources before…
