The order, however, comes shortly after a leak that has splashed the NSC has caused a political earthquake in Washington with the start of a political trial process against Trump.

The leak – which Trump pressured Kiev to investigate former vice president and Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his family for alleged corruption in Ukraine – came from inside the White House itself.

As published by The New York Times, it would be a CIA agent who worked for a while in the White House.

This Friday, Trump has retweeted a message on Twitter stating that in the White House the filter worked for the NSC.

It has also been known that the White House stores in a system that very few people in the NSC have access to classified information and files of Trump talks with foreign leaders, such as the one he had with the Ukrainian Vladimir Zelenski.

The leak has shaken Washington to a year of the presidential elections with the start of a political trial process against the president.

The president of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, ordered her committees last week to initiate an investigation with the aim of bringing to the plenary an "impeachment" vote so that the Senate can discuss Trump's impeachment.
