Trump discovers he doesn’t like leaks after all | MSNBC

It’s a curious posture. Trump doesn’t want Congress to investigate a foreign adversary subverting American democracy on his behalf, but he does want Congress to investigate a news organization – in this case, NBC News – reporting details he doesn’t like. Of course, during his time as a presidential candidate, Trump thought leaks were great … just so long as they benefited his campaign. At one point, the Republican literally encouraged Russia to leak stolen emails to news organizations, reminding Russian officials they would “probably be rewarded mightily by our press. ”It appears he has a new perspective. In related news, WikiLeaks, which literally has the word “leaks” in its name, denounced what it sees as an “illegal” leak. WikiLeaks went on to suggest that it’s against “unlawful” disclosures of government information “for political advantage.”

These are strange days, indeed.
