Is source of White House leaks Kate Walsh?

They called it "Breaking Report" but it's premature to know for certain if #NeverTrumper and White House Deputy Chief of Staff, Kate Walsh, is the source of the leaks designed to undermine the Trump administration and his presidency.

GotNews reported on Sunday that the source of the leaks came from Ms. Walsh and she is being investigated as the person who has been distributing highly confidential information to such sources as The New York Times, the "Communist-loving Paper of Record," and others.

The Gateway Pundit reached out to GotNews' founder, Charles Johnson, for comment on the story and he told them it was "One hundred percent reliable, I'm unwilling to reveal the primary White House sources but Walsh was behind the leaks."

I, for one, am never comfortable with anonymous sources, although it's understandable why the source would not be willing to go public on this information. 

GotNews wrote: 
"Everyone knows not to talk to her in the White House unless you want to see it in the press," says a source close to the president. "The only question is whether or not she's doing it at the behest of [White House Chief of Staff] Reince Priebus or if she's doing it to advance herself in DC media circles."
One source in particular stands out: Walsh is close to Maggie Habberman, a New York Times reporter who wrote fawning pro-Republican National Committee stories during the presidential election. Walsh had also planted stories in The Washington Post and Politico. 
The article goes on to describe how Walsh is called "Madame President" in a negative way in the White House.

She also has a great deal of access as she controls President Trump's schedule, and there is alos reportedly a large number of emails where she and Priebus discuss how to rid themselves of Trump, according to a former #NeverTrump consultant.

"The president and his allies have been deliberately feeding her fake information in order to find her network," a source close to Mr. Trump's family said. "It's been going well."

According to GotNews, Walsh could not be reached for comment.

Again, it cannot be stressed enough, that this is a story generated by anonymous sources so we really need to wait for further developments before assuming it's true. Like Mr. Trump has said, there's a lot of fake news out there . . . believe me.
