All during the 2016 race for the White House, Donald Trump repeatedly attacked Hillary Clinton for her private email server, even going to far as to allege that she had compromised American national security and might have leaked classified information via the internet.
On Monday, karma decided to pay yet another visit to the Trump administration in the form of a Washington Post report that alleges the so-called head of state revealed secret intelligence data to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when they visited the Oval Office last week.
So it seems only fair to take a look back at some of the things Trump has tweeted regarding the leaking of classified information in the past:
Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Not fit!

The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!

The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!

Social media never forgets, and plenty of Twitter users were only too happy to give Donnie their take on his hypocrisy:

There is no greater critic of Trump the president than Trump the unemployed TV host with an itchy Twitter finger https://t.co/IzFd72SX1J

Of course, we won’t hold our breath waiting for people like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to grow some testicles and call for the Leaker-in-Chief to be investigated and impeached. That would require them to act like statesmen instead of sheep.
