Spicey is snatching the phones of White House staff in order to find leakers. Can you say "paranoia?"

Courtesy of Politico:  

Last week, after Spicer became aware that information had leaked out of a planning meeting with about a dozen of his communications staffers, he reconvened the group in his office to express his frustration over the number of private conversations and meetings that were showing up in unflattering news stories, according to sources in the room. 

Upon entering Spicer’s second floor office, staffers were told to dump their phones on a table for a “phone check," to prove they had nothing to hide.

Spicer, who consulted with White House counsel Don McGahn before calling the meeting, was accompanied by White House lawyers in the room, according to multiple sources. There, he explicitly warned staffers that using texting apps like Confide -- an encrypted and screenshot-protected messaging app that automatically deletes texts after they are sent -- and Signal, another encrypted messaging system, was a violation of the Federal Records Act, according to multiple sources in the room. 

The phone checks included whatever electronics staffers were carrying when they were summoned to the unexpected follow-up meeting, including government-issued and personal cell phones.

My favorite part of this story is that it ALSO leaked out, which means that Spicey is going to lose his shit that his attempts to stop leaks was also leaked to the press.

This is really starting to feel like Hitler's final days in the bunker.

They know the end is coming and they have already started to suspect and distrust those around them.

Someday all of this is going to make a great book.

Though they will probably put it in the Fiction section since nobody will believe it could have really happened this way.

    Maybe Putin had his good buddy President Bannon put "bugs" in every room at the WH? He needs to keep informed of what his puppet is up to. Maybe Maleria is the one who planted them, so therefore does not want to stay at the WH? I hear that President Obama offered to attend the Correspondent's Dinner in tRump's place, saying "It is a HELL of a lot of fun"

      "They" do have experience in cavity searches.

    If no one has been fired is it possible someone is making up information from the outside?

    My experience is that personalities like Trump are fine with doing wrong but they do not want anyone to know they did it. They demand and believe they are entitled to a reputation quite the contrary.

  3. Good gravy, when is Paranoid Spice going to start rummaging through the female staffers' (few as there are) handbags and insist that their tampons conceal listening devices? Nothing would surprise me at this point.

    We return to D.C. later this week after two months away. Then I'll be assured that what's happened there in our absence is not just a prolonged bad dream!

    Is that Spicy, or SNL?

    1. That photo is SNL.

      Soon you won't be able to tell the difference. It's getting to the point where SNL can send their writers to Hawaii for a vacation and just perform word for word what is happening in the White House.

      SNL is on hiatus now, but I suspect they are going to have a mound of material to draw from. Hopefully Melissa and Alec will be back.

      With CPAC over perhaps we'll have a special guest Bannon to pair with their Priebus. And not the Grim Reaper.

    Started? These feral sociopaths have suspected and distrusted each other from the get go. The white house under this administration is nothing but a bucket of squirming venomous snakes.

    Yes indeed they should be paranoid to hell. We saw the group walking the wh grounds with their shrinking heads together trying to draft a plan. But the plan for republicans should be to salvage their soul and confess, testify, and repent. Because "YOU PEOPLE have seriously committed treason and espionage" and you continue to lie lie lie. Your are making it worst, you are guilty as sin. You know it, we know it, and the world knows it. You cannot hide it, lie about it or take it back.

    According to RoguePOTUS, many of them knew about the 'surprise' meeting and ditched their phones before hand.

    They may have been able to legally demand to search the government issued phones,but the personal phone search is probably not legal.

    1. No. But with the lawyers there to intimidate the staff it's a matter of turn it over or you'll be fired on the spot. Since they are all "at will" employees, nothing can be done.

      Me? I'd say fuck you, throw my government issued phone at him and quit on the spot.

      Fascist pig.
