Intelligence Leaks Represent An Actual Constitutional Crisis

Ever since Donald Trump’s election to the presidency, the media and the left have been in full crisis mode. They’ve suggested that every Trump action amounts to a Constitutional crisis. They’re now suggesting that the ouster of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn represents a scandal worse than Iran-Contra or Watergate, a cataclysmic event along the lines of 9/11.
That’s nonsense.
There is a Constitutional crisis taking place, however. And it’s taking place within the intelligence community.
During the election cycle, many leftists thrilled to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that Hillary would not be prosecuted, based on shoddy evidence and worse legal reasoning. Then, too many conservatives thrilled to the FBI’s James Comey publicly announcing developments in his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. Leaks from the intelligence community obviously undercut Hillary’s already-untenable claims of honesty; that made conservatives happy, and so conservatives cheered Wikileaks and celebrated Comey for his forthright willingness to bust open an incomplete investigation in the press.
Now, the intelligence community, high on its own fumes, has begun leaking to the press. It’s now no longer a leak – it’s a flood. And the media have taken those leaks and run with them, slapping the most inflammatory headlines available on the leaks. President Trump is absolutely within his rights to complain about the intelligence community’s obvious attempts to destroy those within his administration.

Hopefully those passing along classified information, will get frog marched in leg irons before the public. Trump will find them. It's just a matter of time.
