The Trump administration isn’t being forthcoming about how many cases are connected to the White House. They also aren’t doing contact tracing. So instead, we have to rely on leaks and great reporting. This is how we learned Crede Bailey, the head of the White House security office is fighting for his life today. Jennifer Jacobs, the Bloomberg reporter who broke the news about Hope Hicks’ diagnosis, also was the first to report on Bailey’s condition.
According to Jacobs:
The White House has not publicly disclosed Bailey’s illness. He became sick before the Sept. 26 Rose Garden event President Donald Trump held to announce his Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett that has been connected to more than a dozen cases of the disease.
A White House spokesman declined to comment on Bailey.
