There's talk that some high-level Trump officials in the West Wing may be subjected to taking Lie Detector tests. Concerns over chronic leaks coming from the White House have reached epic proportions. Who's leaking confidential information to the press and will it take a polygraph to find out who's responsible for damaging material getting out?

Lie detector tests the next step?

President Donald Trump's counselor, Kellyanne Conway, told "Fox and Friends" that "it's easier to figure out who's leaking than the leakers may realize." Conway didn't shoot down the prospect of lie detector tests being used on a handful of people with access to the president.

The president's adviser told Fox that the tests "may" or "may not" be used. In other words, it's not being ruled out.

When phone transcripts leaked conversations that Trump had with the Mexican president and Australian prime minister, it set off more alarm that someone in their circle is allowing sensitive information to get out of the White House.

When it comes to cracking down on leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, are intent on resolving the issue. Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, and William Evanina, the government's top counterintelligence executive, are jointly working with the attorney general on the leaks, a move that Trump has praised Sessions for after complaining on Twitter that he was "weak" in terms of getting the leaks under control.

Risks to national security

The increased leaks of classified information is placing the nation at risk in regard to threatening national security. A number of speculations pointed to a few key players in Trump's innermost circle. Among some of those named speculated as possible leakers were White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and even the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.

The Russian investigation has fired up claims about leaks coming from those with direct access to the president. A series of contentious exchanges reportedly took place between the advisers, making it seem possible that none of them would think twice about going to the media in an effort to outdo the other.

Will there be lie detector tests for members of Trump's West Wing staff? If so, it would likely include the aforementioned individuals given their senior-level positions in the administration.
