The former national security Advisor, H. R. McMaster spoke on Tuesday of two reasons for the leaks, which, he observed, addressing an issue of national security, he proposed with while working in the trump administration.
During a sit-down interview at a meeting of the Perry World House, McMaster, the two types of leaks that he experienced.
“One of them was to damage the President,” he said. “Some of these leaks that we know of, was from people who went on the staff, to the people you worked with in a previous administration and I think they were out to damage the President’s reputation.”
The second motive, he said, was more self-serving. “I think some of the leaks occurred, because there were those who wanted to manipulate the President in a particular decision, in accordance with its agenda,” he said.
