Sen. Bob Corker urged the Trump administration to clean house after after an “unseemly” series of leaks, including transcripts of the president’s conversations with foreign leaders, which were published Thursday.
During a press conference in Washington D.C., Corker said he had advised President Donald Trump and John F. Kelley, the new chief of staff, “to fire every single person that’s had anything whatsoever to do with backbiting, undermining other people for their own benefit and leaking – and not to be cautious about it.”
“If there’s even a thought that somebody was involved, get rid of them,” the Tennessee Republican added.
Corker, who has been a staunch ally of the Trump White House, rose his voice and shook his arms while talking about the leaks that have repeatedly brought turmoil to the administration.
“It is unseemly what is happening at the White House right now – or what has been happening,” Corker said. “These people should be fired, they should be out of government — they are disloyal to our government — and I hope that’s what’s gonna happen.”
