Sessions reportedly eyeing lie detector tests for members of the National Security Council

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering a new plan to rid the White House of leakers.

It would involve having members of the National Security Council take lie detector tests as they are being interrogated about how conversations between President Donald Trump and other world leaders were leaked to the press, Axios reported.

It is unknown if Sessions will actually do it, but the subject has been broached with several people, according to the report.

Sessions’ idea is to do a one-time, one-issue, polygraph test of everyone on the NSC staff. Interrogators would sit down with every single NSC staffer (there’s more than 100 of them), and ask them, individually, what they know about the leaks of transcripts of the president’s phone calls with foreign leaders. Sessions suspects those leaks came from within the NSC, and thinks that a polygraph test — at the very least — would scare them out of leaking again.


The reason he would target the leaks of phone calls with foreign leaders is that the number of people privy to that information is smaller.

The news comes after Steve Bannon expressed his utter disdain for members of Bush-era national security figures, calling them “idiots” among other things.
