Joe Biden’s administration has no idea what to do. Someone is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Because the White House is in total chaos searching for an undercover mole.
Reports circulated this weekend that extremely sensitive documents and intelligence were making their way online regarding the war in Ukraine as well as Israeli spy intel.
The documents were very new and some labeled “TOP SECRET,” which mean only a select few individuals have access to these documents.

Immediately, the question everyone wanted answered was who was leaking this top secret intel to the public.
At first, it was thought that it is possible Ukrainian personnel leaked the intel. Some suggested it was Israel.
But the finger is pointed at the U.S. according to the latest reports. In fact, U.S. officials are now searching for a mole within the Biden administration.
Highly classified military and intelligence documents that appeared online, with details ranging from Ukraine’s air defenses to Israel’s Mossad spy agency, have U.S. officials scrambling to identify the leak’s source, with some Western security experts and U.S. officials saying they suspected it could be someone from the United States.
A former Senior Pentagon official, Michael Mulroy, says that the search is on for a U.S. official leaking the intel because the intel was largely only in U.S. possession.
“The focus now is on this being a U.S. leak, as many of the documents were only in U.S. hands,” Michael Mulroy said to the media.
Outlets have also reported that some of the intel is labeled “NOFORN” which means that the intel is not to be released into the hands of foreign nations.
The documents have been finding their way online in public forums like 4Chan and in chat rooms like Discord, indicating that the leaker has intentions of the intel being in the hands of the public.
This is reminiscent of the WikiLeaks situation of the 2010s which saw more than 700,000 documents of all types leaked to the public. Julian Assange was eventually charged by the federal government for violating the Espionage Act of 1917.
Assange lives in Australia and has not been extradited to the U.S. as many within the public believe that he was just exposing the federal government’s actions to the public.
For example, Assange released war logs, many of which weren’t redacted, that showed how the federal government was acting in bad faith in their war against Iraqi terrorists in the middle east.
It’s not entirely sure if these intelligence leaks regarding Ukraine and Israel are politically motivated or personally motivated, but it does seem like it’s come from within the U.S.
If that’s the case, it’s entirely possible the leaker is already gone from the United States knowing how the federal government has harshly treated former leakers such as Edward Snowden.
