Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has a theory about where the recent White House leaks surrounding former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may be coming from — and it’s not from the Trump administration.
On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh addressed concerns that former President Obama and fellow loyalists might be trying to sabotage President Donald Trump.

“(The media is) already asking what did Trump know and when did he know it, and that’s not the question,” Limbaugh said. “The question is, what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it and what has he engineered here?”
Limbaugh agrees that if Flynn lied to the administration about the details of his phone call with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., that would warrant his resignation. But the bigger issue may not be the actions of Flynn, according to Limbaugh, but rather those associated with the Obama administration.
‘You want to be concerned about a problem? I’ll give you a problem to be concerned about, and that’s the leaks that are coming from the Trump administration. Except I don’t think they’re coming from the Trump administration. I think it’s part of Obama scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency,” Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh pointed out the hypocrisy in Democrats who demanded Flynn’s resignation.
“So we have a resignation over a phone call, a freaking phone call,” Limbaugh said. “The Democrats don’t resign when they’re caught red-handed with their hand in the till or in bed with an intern or whatever else transgression the Democrats engage in. There are no resignations and there are no demands for resignations.”
The president criticized the media on Tuesday, saying the “real story” the press should be focusing on is “why there are so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington.”
The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal on N.Korea etc?

Flynn resigned from his position late Monday night after a mole within the White House leaked Flynn’s political discussions with a Russian diplomat and other sensitive information.
When Flynn was asked Tuesday morning by Fox News if the leaks were targeted, coordinated and possibly a violation of the law, he responded, “Yes, yes and yes.”
