Apparently this White House leaks like a siv. And it starts at the top with The Donald:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway reportedly shared behind-the-scenes White House conversations with reporters at a Washington, D.C. party on Friday night in conversations that were overheard by another party guest.
A witness labeled Conway a “leaker” for talking about conversations with Trump in an open setting to members of the media. Leakers have been under fire by Trump and the White House. Trump is besieged by reports based on leaks of his plans and has blasted media for reporting based on anonymous sources, which he claims are likely fabricated.
The witness created an anonymous Twitter feed, @KellyanneLeaks, to document Conway’s overheard conversations. Politico first reported the Twitter feed and confirmed the conversations with two other sources.
Former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC) called out Speaker Paul Ryan earlier today for what he believes is hypocrisy in handling President Donald Trump’s Russia scandal. Inglis explained that if it were former Secretary Hillary Clinton in the White House, the GOP lead Congress would go after her with vengeance. They’re not with Trump.
In an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Inglis went further saying that he’s deeply concerned about Trump’s scandal. In fact, he’s more concerned about Trump’s scandal than he ever was about former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in the late 1990s. He also personally called for Clinton to resign at the time. When asked which was more serious, Clinton’s impeachment or Trump’s scandal, Inglis revealed he feels Trump’s is a far bigger deal.

Amid James Comey’s damning testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, calls for President Donald Trump to face impeachment proceedings are surging. In the past 48 hours, two of the leading Trump resistance groups have called for the first time for the impeachment process to start against Trump on charges of obstruction of Justice.

Democrats won’t come out for impeachment because they are more interested in playing politics than doing the right thing:
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) is already drafting articles of impeachment related to Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, believing there’s enough evidence of Trump’s obstruction of justice to begin an impeachment inquiry (not to mention Trump’s blatant violation of the Constitutions emoluments clause by profiting off his presidency, and much else).
But Democratic leaders are pushing back, warning there aren’t enough facts to justify an impeachment inquiry at this point, and, in any event, such an inquiry would politicize ongoing congressional investigations.
Historically, the three previous impeachment inquiries in the House (involving presidents Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton) rested on less evidence of obstruction of justice than is already publicly known about Trump.
In a blistering op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Rove said, “Trump lacks the focus or self-discipline to do the basic work required of a president.”
Rove began explaining why Trump’s tweeting doesn’t remove the media barrier between Trump and the citizenry, it consistently undermines his administration and his political agenda. Citing Trump’s tweets calling his executive order a “travel ban,” Rove said the legal strategy defending the ban “lies in tatters.”
He went on to say that Trump’s tweets that followed were “even more hazardous.”
