The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security "leakers" that have permeated our government for a long time. They can't even......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 24, 2017
find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 24, 2017
Trump seems to be referring to the news that Reince Priebus tried to get the FBI to quash statements about the connections between Russia and the White House. But that kind of communcation is not "classified information." And saying it in a Tweet is not a Presidential directive classifying that communication. It's not even the right way to handle a concern about leaks in the White House and FBI authority to contain or even criminalize such leaks. Sort of like this tweet:
Seven people shot and killed yesterday in Chicago. What is going on there - totally out of control. Chicago needs help!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 24, 2017
What does he think he's going to do: replace Rahm Emmanuel? Appoint a new police commissioner in Chicago? Declare martial law there and flood the streets with soldiers? Is this even a directive to Congress to investigate how to help Chicago and stem the violence there?
Does Trump even understand he is the President now?
