Paranoia strikes deep, into the place where Trump would normally have a heart, Bolton will creep...



Bolton left the White House last month, and he and the president’s relationship had soured so badly they argued over whether he quit or was fired, and Trump now suspects the hawkish career bureaucrat is behind a flood of leaks against him, reported The Daily Beast.

Three people familiar with Trump’s private conversations said the president speculated that his former national security adviser was behind the anonymous accounts that listed Bolton as one of the top officials deeply disturbed by the Ukraine pressure campaign.

Bolton told the website last month that leaking allegations against him were “flatly incorrect.”

Neither Bolton nor the White House commented on the president’s suspicions, but Trump ally Matt Schlapp told The Daily Beast that he believes the leaks are coming “career folks inside who hate Trump,” although he’s not certain about the former national security adviser.

“He’s smarter than that, although he does aggressively defend himself,” said Schlapp, whose wife Mercedes Schlapp stepped down as White House director of strategic communications in July and now works for the Trump re-election campaign.

1. "career folks inside who hate Trump,"

Or maybe they're coming from folks who love their country and who don't want it destroyed.

2. One, the other, maybe both

I think the common thread with all of them, whatever the underlying reason might be, is "enough is enough."
