A senior White House aide is feeding staffers inaccurate stories to try to identify who is leaking to the press, according to a New York Times report. 
President Donald Trump’s administration has been plagued by a string of leaks in past months, with one staffer quitting last week over reports of a leaked comment. 
Trump and top administration officials have condemned leaks and instituted several measures to stop staffers from speaking to the press. 

A senior White House aide is deliberately feeding inaccurate stories to White House staffers in an effort to weed out those who are speaking to reporters, according to a New York Times report on Sunday.

Amid an ongoing battle with leaks of internal meetings and memos, President Donald Trump has reportedly remained fixated on determining who is passing information on to the press, the report said.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
