Pat Caddell: National Security Adviser Tom Donilon Likely Source of Intelligence Leaks (Updated)

Via Big Government:

Pat Caddell joined Stephen K. Bannon on the “Victory Sessions” and told him that National Security Advisor Tom Donilon is likely the source of recent intelligence leaks that have prompted calls for an investigation by Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein. Caddell explains that he is certain Donilon is the source of the leaks because of his background as a political operative and a known “leaker”.

Watch the  interview at Big Government.

Caddell said, “the culprit is clear, it’s National Security Adviser, Tom Donilon…..He is a political hack.

Back in October of 2010, in what was taken by many at the time to be a signal that the President had no interest in pivoting to the right in the wake of the the mid-term Dem-shellacking,  Obama appointed Tom Donilon to be his National Security Adviser, taking the place of the outgoing Marine General Jim Jones.

John, at Powerline provided a little background information on the President’s new National Security Adviser:

For a long time, Donilon lived his life from presidential campaign to campaign.

The Democratic operative worked on his first Democratic National Convention at 24, and he’s been helping elect candidates ever since. He has worked for Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Joseph R. Biden. …

He was a registered lobbyist from 1999 through 2005, and his sole client was Fannie Mae. … His brother is Michael C. Donilon, a counselor to Vice President Joseph R. Biden. His wife, Cathy Russell, is Jill Biden’s chief of staff.

Andrew McCarthy noted at the time that Defense Sec. Robert Gates had been quoted as saying that Tom Donilon would be “a disaster” if appointed national security adviser.

According to Bob Woodward’s book, Obama’s Wars Gates described Donilon, as clueless when it comes to the military and was deeply offended by the disrespect the former Fannie Mae lobbyist showed to senior military leadership.

The RNC has a profile on the Dem political operative who is now Obama’s Natl Security Adviser, here.

Doug Ross also reported that Donilon had a direct hand in destroying the housing market as Fannie Mae executive.

You really must listen to Caddell rail against the guy. Several times during the interview, Bannon cautioned Caddell to moderate his tone – he was sounding so harsh….

But Caddell stuck to his guns, saying,  “anyone who knows him knows, Tom Donilon will put being elected and the ambition of thinking that he should be Sec of State…above anything!

It almost sounds like Caddell is on a vendetta. I’ll definitely be watching Hannity tonight.

  1. YOu would take the word of a extreme right wing partisan hack Caddell?

    (p.s. I know he is a Carter sycophant, but just wanted to beat the liberals to the punch).


  2. Donilon would’ve been my first guess, Brenan my second, Val Gal third.
    We are seeing the radical socialist wing of the dimoCrap party break apart, piece by piece right before our eyes. Grab some popcorn and stay tuned, this is going to be very enjoyable to see. Just imagine if the repubics ever pursued any of the legitimate impeachment charges that are warranted, against these bastids.

    Caddell a partisan hack? . . . . now that there is funny, I don’t care who you are!


  3. I’m far left in my political views, but I must say this classified info leak scandal is particularly disturbing. I also find it ironic that this story gains momentum on the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in. If President Obama is offended by accusations that he knew or someone in his administration leaked the info, then why the opposition to a Special Prosecutor? Unless Obama’s hiding something, he should want to get to the bottom of it and not try to block requests for an independent prosecutor to investigate the matter. He’s the only person who stood to benefit from the leak believing it would improve his chances of winning a second term. I believe he was involved in some way and used his office for political advancement and is an abuse of power.
