So who exactly is leaking the White House Oval office transcripts?

I'm happy they are but there cannot be too many people with access to those. Who is doing it?

1. We'll probably find out before too long, now.

The situation is fairly explosive and the number of people with access is small. There will be no hiding, really, for whoever it was.

Someone will probably be dropping a resignation and walking out while Trump is gone.

2. No kidding

Even back when the first week of his residency I wondered who leaked the call with the Australian Prime Minister. I mean there can't be many in the loop. Think Spicy might do it??

Who the leaker could be to the Washington Post.. could of been a day or so ago... his Treatment by tRump has been well.... shaming, controlling, abusive...he knows as do we he's in line to hear the famous words " Your Fired".
He could be on the AF1...I just got home and catching up on TV news.

The third official in the NY times article said that DT was using this talk of pressure as a negotiating tactic in order to get concessions from the Russians.

23. Unless it's self-serving in a big way ...

for example, Pence stands to gain from Trumps fall. Or so he thinks and hopes. Anyway, I wouldn't assign the hero label to the leaker at this point. Hell, it could be Trump himself -- maybe he's had enough and just wants to be able to say, " Okay, I'm tired of this bullshit. Got bewtter things to do with my time. I'm outa here!"

11. Pence. He's still in DC. Spicer is part of the clown show that's going to Saudi Arabia.

If what the New York Times reported is true, Pence is probably rehearsing, one House Republican who asked not to be named quipped Wednesday. Its just like Nixon. From the standpoint that its never the underlying issue, it is always the cover-up. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/17/mike-pence-president-trump-238525

I've long suspected Spicey might be a mole.

Of course, that might just mean he's a subterranean rodent.

Or an unwanted cluster of skin cells.

he just wants to save his neck. He's far too young in his mind to be put to pasture ... or worse, in jail.

24. Exactly what I have wondered since the Oval Office Russian meeting. And who wrote the

notes for the transcripts? And was brave enough to leak them? WH has to be able to identify the source with so few people present. And if T knew there were notes being written, is he really that dim that he would say all that stuff even if it was being written down?

32. Probably someone in the Intelligence community he's

been insulting. Not a good idea to pick fights with those guys, payback and all. Or maybe even a patriot. Someone who sees the traitor and won't let it go on.

Some progressive radio has said Pompeo or Pence. Those are interesting names. Pence for personal gain, don't know about Pompeo.

40. OH yes, the IC, but not necessarily "leaks" ...

Clandestine data capture and release, by operators not in the room, is distinctly different than seeking a leaker among the "cast of characters" in the room and their aides). It still gets the un-vetted info out there, and remains anonymous (until it falls apart). We have learned from the IC that if it can be monitored, it will be (total information awareness).

My hunch is the recent, so-called leaks from the Office of the Speaker of the House (Putin pays Trump & Rohrabacher) are part of the IC same operation.

35. a patriot

someone who is putting the welfare of the country over their continued employment. possibly even risking incarceration?

i am so thankful for all the good leakers. the republicans may want to pretend there's nothing worse but no, there is plenty worse when the people in charge are unrelentingly destructive to this nation.

i watched an episode of the first 48 and this woman whose son had been murdered, said "I don't want to be a rat" to the police. It didn't take much persuasion to get her to tell all she knew, after all it was her son, but some people actually act as if helping to bring a murderer to justice is worse than murdering a person.

i'm never going to get that. but that is what i'm hearing from the republicans all the time. don't look at what we did and what we're doing, look at who told you about it! yeah, heroes they are. heroes.

44. He's a complete moron and complicit in spreading the administration's lies, but...

...that being said, he's probably the closest thing they have to an actual himan being as opposed to an automaton. Just think of guys like Stephen Miller or Gorka. Probably the fact he actually has to have a relationship with the press corps makes him a little different.

I'll put it this way: I pity him. I pity him like a sick animal.

I have a love-hate relationship with his persona, but it's better than the hate-hate relationship I have with the rest of them.

42. There a number of "rogue" admin Twitter accounts I like to check in on

every now and then. They don't really leak this kind of stuff in their tweets, but they often have very interesting things to say. One or more of them could have leaked. A couple of them seem to definitely be that in the know.

Here are the folks I follow, the top 4 more frequently.

ROGUE POTUS STAFF https://twitter.com/RoguePOTUSStaff
WHITE HOUSE STAFFER https://twitter.com/AngryWHStaffer
ANGRY WHITE HOUSE STAFF https://twitter.com/AngrierWHStaff
ROGUE SENIOR ADVISOR https://twitter.com/RogueSNRadvisor
ALT JUSTICE https://twitter.com/AltUSDOJ
ALT STATE DEPT https://twitter.com/AltDeptState
ALT HUD https://twitter.com/AltUSDeptHUD
ALT EPA https://twitter.com/altUSEPA
ALT DOD https://twitter.com/Rogue_DoD
ALT DIA https://twitter.com/AltDIA
ALT YELLOWSTONE https://twitter.com/AltYelloNatPark @AltYelloNatPark
ALT USDA https://twitter.com/USDA_alt
ALT EEOB https://twitter.com/AltEEOB
ROGUE ALT GOV https://twitter.com/RogueAltGov
ALT SEAN SPICER https://twitter.com/AltUSPressSec
ALT HAWAII VOLCANOES https://twitter.com/AltHVNP
ALT NATIONAL PARKS https://twitter.com/aItnps

No one knows for sure they're authentic, but I've never really encountered any reason to doubt that they are.
