The Great Leak Hunt A special FBI unit is mapping the network of partisan leakers between agencies and media

While there were many important issues facing the incoming Trump administration in January 2017, the most serious one it faced was this: a network of Obama/Clinton partisans who were already demonstrating a commitment to a strategy of leaking classified information, in order to sabotage the incoming president and his team.
Partisans entrenched across the agencies of the federal government spent the entire transition period making it clear that they viewed Trump’s election win as illegitimate and that they fully intended to sandbag him at every opportunity.
An Incoming Administration Already Under Siege
The new president hadn’t even been inaugurated yet when a politically motivated strategic leak by a highly placed government official of a classified intelligence report placed his national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, under FBI investigation.
Even before that, other leaks by Obama/Hillary partisans inside the DOJ, the FBI, the State Department, and various intelligence agencies had been used to place Trump campaign personnel such as Carter Page under suspicion of being foreign agents of Russia.
