Colbert: White House staff should 'change the locks' while Trump on vacation

President's transcripts leak is a matter of national security: White House

Far from being criticized for publishing these leaked transcripts, The Washington Post should be commended.

Trump, who used to be critical of his predecessor taking his annual vacations to Hawaii and Martha's Vineyard, would be spending his next two weeks at his private golf club in central New Jersey.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump stand together after John Kelly is sworn in as White House Chief of Staff in the Oval Office.

DAVID FOLKENFLIK, BYLINE: Oh, it's a deluge.

The fun never seems to stop at this White House - much of it being put to good use by late-night talk show hosts and television writers. "I'm not going to have time to go play golf".

The entire renovation work will be carried out by the General Service Administration (GSA) "which has been delivering the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to the federal government and American people for more than 67 years". At this point in 2009, President Obama had held 9 solo pressers, many of them about the country's economic recovery. The problem is that unlike in The Apprentice, the reality TV show that made Trump a household name, the USA voters can not turn around and tell their president: 'You're fired!' Having elected him by ignoring his eventful past and reputation, they now have to live with the consequences. Journalists value solo pressers because there are typically given more time to ask a greater number of questions. I mean, is there some standard or some line when more and more people might say, OK, this is getting out of hand in some way?

Post-Scaramucci White House, why Trump is fighting Republicans
Because he suspects Priebus for leaking information about his financial disclosure form to a reporter of Politico. The comments by Anthony Scaramucci causes chaos in the white house and also for religious leaders.

The conversation, between President Trump and the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, was leaked to media, along with a conversation between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. And that's not something that can always be done transparently.

Both calls took place in January and, according to the paper, the transcripts had been prepared by White House staff, but not released. This is getting unsafe, folks.

JJ: Of course, I think it is indeed a part of the goal in leaking them in the first place - to put a chilling effect on anything this president might do while they continue to set him up for removal.

"You don't know who made the transcripts", she said. That, I can tell you. "Only way for me to get the truth out!" Business owners says that they are ready for a business boom. Our default setting has to be we publish information that is valid and connected to the understanding of the American public with the government that does things in their names.

"This is betrayal of the country", Director of National Intelligence Dave Coats said, of the leaks. "We're not going to be big on vacations". The press is going to go with that and I can not live with that. If the president ignores the warning and sacks the special counsel who is known for his integrity, he could unleash a massive backlash from both sides of the divide. Because we know Trump puts himself, his ego and his interests ahead of everything and will do nearly anything to avoid looking bad, he might just decide to take his ball and go home. They think of these people as "whistleblowers" and view all this through the lense of "transparency".
