Holdovers from Barack Obama’s administration are trying to bring down and disrupt Donald Trump’s presidency through a series of leaks and altered documents according to a report from The Washington Free Beacon. An official from the state department has said that state employees are doing their best to sabotage Trump and his policies from within using their roles in government to destroy the government.
Officials in the White House say they have found evidence of Obama loyalists leaking documents to their friends in the media, leaking documents that cast the White House in a bad light and in some cases sabotaging and altering documents to delay or destroy policy implementation: most especially Trump’s Travel restrictions.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“We have members of the former administration at the highest levels who through their actions after January 20 have demonstrated their refusal to recognize the results of the general election,” a senior administration official told the Free Beacon. “They have pursued, organized, and managed a comprehensive subversion of the new administration.”
A State Department official has told The Daily Caller that career department employees are doing whatever they can to undermine the Trump administration.
A senior administrator in Trump’s team has said that the outgoing administration “left landmines everywhere” by making it difficult, if not impossible to get new staff in place and costing the Executive (and therefore the taxpayer) millions of dollars.
