On Friday, during her appearance on Fox & Friends, Kellyanne Conway revealed that the White House may use a lie detector test to figure out who is leaking information about Trump and the staff.
Conway stated, “It’s easier to figure out who’s leaking than the leakers may realize.” When asked if lie detectors would be used, she replied, “Well, they may, they may not.”
Conway went as far as saying the leaks are “nothing short of a national disgrace.”
However, there are a handful of problems using a polygraph because some people can “beat” the test as long as they manage their nervousness. Also, there are some cases where people may be falsely accused of something they didn’t do simply because they’re just too nervous.
This kind of talk is going on as the White House is dealing leaks to the Washington Post with transcripts of conversations between Trump and the Mexican and Australian leaders.
Even Attorney General Jeff Sessions stepped in to announce a crackdown on the illegal leaks.
The Obama administration had cracked down on leaks before too but journalists have complained that it hurts the public’s right to know information.
