As a result of recent whistleblowing and leaks from internal individuals, Trump has stated repeatedly that he feels unsure that White House information will remain protected from White House opportunists. To ensure early detection of someone who might share secure information, Trump has suggested using lie-detector tests to discover leakers, according to Business Insider.
“He talks about it a lot,” stated a former official to Politico. Information as it pertains to the White House and the Trump administration has continued to be leaked to the media, along with transcripts of phone calls with important political figures throughout the globe. “I want to know who’s the person who gave the whistleblower the information because that’s close to a spy,” stated Trump regarding the latest leak that has led to an impeachment inquiry by House Democrats.
