Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told the women of ABC’s “The View” that she is glad that illegal leaks are happening to the President that put U.S. national security at risk.
The Washington Times reported:
Co-host Joy Behar laughed and a studio audience burst into cheers as one President Trump’s most strident critics in Congress said that White House leaks bring her a sense of guy — even if it threatens national security. The exchange came as co-host Paula Faris expressed concern over the president’s ability to govern if private conversations with world leaders are regularly leaked.
“The Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, he just delivered a briefing today about cracking down on this,” Ms. Faris said. “We have to be bothered by these phone conversations, these confidential conversations that he had with Mexico and Australia that were just illegally leaked to The Washington Post. There are a lot of Democrats who are disturbed by this because it threatens our national security. Are you disturbed by it?”
“No, not at all,” the California Democrat responded. “I am so glad they’re telling us what’s going on. […] I need to hear these conversations. Unfortunately, this is his problem.”
Ms. Faris countered that world leaders will be reluctant to speak with Mr. Trump if they know that anything they say may wind up in major U.S. newspapers.

Maxine Waters is an absolutely terrible human being, she would rather destroy the President of the United States than keep our country safe!
