Dan Senor and Campbell Brown were behind the Trump tap leaks.
When the decade-old video of Donald Trump and Billy Bush was released on the Friday before the second presidential debate the first question people asked was, who leaked it, and all eyes turned towards Hillary Clinton.
According to Western Journalism,as the fallout from the latest controversy to hit the campaign of the Republican nominee begins to rain down on the presidential race, new reports indicate that the man behind the tape leak might just be someone who still calls himself a “Republican strategist.”
In fact, that someone could well have close connections with the GOP establishment, including a very powerful Capitol Hill lawmaker.
Dan Senor is a top adviser for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has done even more lately to distance himself from a Trump campaign that he never fully supported. Senor was also a campaign operative for the failed Romney-Ryan ticket in 2012.
In addition, he’s a favorite go-to “GOP strategist” for leftist media such as MSNBC. Senor’s wife is former CNN and NBC anchor/reporter Campbell Brown, who seemed to confirm the suggestion that Senor tipped off The Washington Post to the audio that became a focal point for Sunday’s second presidential debate.
Brown’s winky-wink hint that her husband was the conduit for the audio recorded in 2005 — a decade before Trump was ever in the presidential race — came in a rather flippant tweet. Brown had been asked by conservative journalist Mike Cernovich whether she and her husband were, in fact, the source of the audio about Trump’s sex-related bragging.
