Here is a most intriguing study into who leaked Donald Trump’s emails to the NYT. There are those in the know and there are those who were there. Who had something to gain by leaking the emails?

And why would they want to wreck the Trumps by leaking something as damaging as this to the Times? Even if they’re annoyed at not being given White House jobs, their proximity to Trump remains their meal ticket. Getting caught hanging ……
