I am starting to believe the White House is being bugged. There could be a device in anything set up by the passed administration to ease drop on the president.

This is very possible because they have not found the leakers. A listening device can easily be recorded and used against the president. This is looking more like a possibility because we know how Sleazy the left has become.

I just can't fathom how they can't find the source of the leaks with just a small number of people present. Who is leaking all the info?

The bugs were places by the Russians who met with Trump in the Oval Office.

Trump declared war on the American intelligence community by firing Comey. He's getting what happens to you when you do that.

I've seen discussions of a FISA warrant allowing the white house to be bugged. Its possible, but highly unlikely.

Big words, since the neocon rightwingers voted for one of the most well-known, sleaziest sleazebags America had to offer.

Well, investigations are just underway. I know trump alleged bugging by Obama, and trump lemmings believe everything their fearless orange leader says, but don't you think that if the WH was bugged, or trump was paranoid about that, highly trained NSA people would have been tasked with sweeping for bugs? I mean, they are experts in espionage, plant many bugs themselves and have equipment to detect them.

Sure, we don't know whether there are potential bugs or not. I'm not claiming knowledge of that. Just seems more likely there's some staffer or other person with access who is both alarmed enough by trump's incompetence and delusional BS and who cares enough about our country to track and leak some of the underhanded crap trump pulls behind closed doors.

For rational people paying attention, the absurd horse hockey trump pulls right out in the open is enough to want him far, far away from Washington.

Your mistake is in imagining there is a single source. There are apparently quite a few leakers. Anyone with any intelligence or experience in the White House is frantically anxious.

By the way, do you have any examples of the Democrats making illicit recordings of Republicans? The only examples that come to my mind are Nixon, of course, that that scummy guy James O'Keefe, who tried to entrap Democrats. There was, for instance, the recording of Mitt Romney, but I don't think that was a Democratic plot. Nor was Billy Bush, who recorded Trump, a Democrat.

The reason there are all these leaks is that Trump has ZERO respect from many of the people who work for him. And that points to what a poor leader he is.

Most of the people who worked for Obama respected him greatly which is why his White House ran relatively smoothly and scandal/leak free. He inspired good work and loyalty from the lower level staff because they felt he deserved it and were proud to have him as their president. I'm sure almost no one feels that way about Trump.
