About two months ago our political analysts made a prediction that the Trump administration would set a record for leaks. Despite having no statistics to back up this claim, the prediction is coming true. What happens next?
-Purge and suppression efforts will increase.
-A few people will be fired/prosecuted.
-Leaks will continue. Leakers will correctly interpret that efforts to suppress increase the value of their leaks--hence more leaks. The most important question is this: will the administration start using leaks strategically?
