Judge Jeanine Pirro outlined Sunday the successes of President Donald Trump's foreign trip to the Middle East and Europe before saying that he has one central problem he needs to focus on domestically.
"But the president in coming home has one huge problem and it's not Russia," Pirro said on her Fox News weekend show, "it's not the Democrats, it's not any of his haters. And if he doesn't fix this problem, we are in big trouble."
"What is it?" she asked. "The leaks."
"Yes, leaks," Pirro explained. "There is a leaker in the White House. There is a traitor inside the people's house — a traitor who must be taken out. That person is an enemy of the United States. That person doing enormous damage not just to the president, who is certainly capable of taking care of himself, but instead, to our nation."
"And the media, instead of focusing on children massacred from Manchester to Egypt, are in a breathless frenzy awaiting another late-day leak. Going from innuendo and non-stories and even publishing classified information," Pirro said. "Some actually saying where there's smoke there must be fire, isn't there? To the point where even Watergate reporter Bob Woodward is telling them to chill the hell out! 'We aren't even close to Watergate!'"
"This leaker needs to be found immediately," she continued. "No hold barred. Now I have my own ideas who that person is. But I'm not ready to share them, yet. Right now, tonight, spare no resources, spare no one. Find that person or persons."
"The traitors, the leakers, the ones who are destroying our nation!" she concluded.
Trump has alternately claimed that the leaks coming from the administration were all falsified and invented by the media, and that they were illegal violations of law by the shadowy "deep state" of government operatives.
Most recently, anonymous sources to the Washington Post claimed that Trump's top aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner asked the Russians for a secret "back channel" of communications before the inauguration. The White House has not denied the allegation, saying such a request was normal and legal.
Critics of the president, like Malcolm Nance, have pounced on the allegation to accuse Kushner of espionage.
