In an ironic twist, Politico reported on a story about Leaks in the White House and Sean Spicer's reaction to them. Mr. Spicer, the gun-chomping White House Press Secretary, is concerned about leaks. Politico said, "It's not the first time that warnings about leaks have promptly leaked." For example, the U.S. State Department's legal office issued a memo warning about the dangers of leaks. You guessed it: the memo "leaked and was almost immediately posted by the Washington Post.

Mr. Spicer, suspects the leaks about "Russia" are emanating from the White House Communications staff.

For example, the news that leaked that Reince Priebus, White House chief-of-staff, asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to "knock down" the stories about the contacts between the Trump campaign team and Russian intelligence officials coordinating the presidential election.

Sean Spicer called a 'surprise' staff meeting

Politico reported Mr. Spicer called a surprise staff meeting in the White House and administration lawyers, who consulted with counsel Don McGahn, searched the cell phones of all that attended. President Donald Trump spent a good deal of the past week grousing about the "fake news" and the "leaks," which presumably were not "fake" at all.

The staff was warned about using some specific texting apps, such as Confide and Signal -- both are encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging apps which automatically deletes texts after being sent -- are a violation of the Federal Records Act.

Discuss this news on Eunomia

Politico said there were "multiple" sources" in the room, a deliberate message to Trump, who said in a speech delivered at CPAC on Friday, that he did not like anonymous sourcing. Government-issued and personal cell phones were checked at the meeting. Mr. Spicer specifically warned that ay more leaks, presumably this one reported, would result in more problems for those involved.

Trump frustrated by 'leaks'

President Trump is also frustrated by the "leaking" and is untrusting of the FBI and the intelligence agencies, believing they are deliberately releasing information to make him look bad. He is pressuring Mr. Spicer and other staffers to find the source.

This will surely come out on the next "Saturday Night Live" with Melissa McCarthy playing the part of Sean Spicer.
