Editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller News Foundation Chris Bedford said the anonymous White House source who leaked to The New York Times actually hurt the resistance movement against President Donald Trump, Monday on Fox News’s “Outnumbered.”

“I think that this is actually a risk and it shows the complete lack of understanding of how the U.S. government’s supposed to operate,” Bedford said. (RELATED: Chris Bedford Accuses Democrats Of Pushing An Anti-American Agenda)

“This self-righteous person who’s in the government, actively resisting the administration, the duly elected president — saying that they’re doing so for the health of the United States? They take that upon themselves? That seems really too far.”

The unknown White House source was critical of the president in TheNYT’s article and claimed there are senior members of the administration working to “frustrate parts of his agenda.”


Bedford said the anonymous leaker has created a witch hunt against him or herself, increasing the chances of being discovered and removed from Trump’s orbit.

“Whoever this person is doesn’t even do themselves any credit by publishing this. Because now there’s a witch hunt,” he concluded.

“If they actually had this really grandiose plan to resist the president, then why would they out it? Why would they let the whole world know and have these people being sniffed out?”
