Lanny Davis: "There Is No Doubt" The White House Knows Who Said "Chickensh*t" RealClearPolitics

On WMAL-AM's morning show, former Clinton White House special counsel said there is "no doubt" the Obama administration knows who made the "chickenshit" comment about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Davis called for the leaker to be fired and said whoever made the comment is chickenshit.

"There is no doubt they know who it is," Davis said Thursday morning. "I mean no doubt."

"Whoever used that expression, chicken-blankity-blank, is in fact chicken-blankity-blank. That person, using that expression who hides behind anonymity rather than standing up and saying this is who I am and this is what I think is chicken-blankity-blank," Davis said.

LARRY O'CONNOR, HOST: I would love for you to comment on this atrouscious, anonymous remark from a White House official -- that's how they are describing this in an Atlantic article -- referring to the Prime Minister of Israel as an expletive, a chicken-blank, a chicken s-word. This is the sixth year of the Obama administration and for this to happen from a White House official, it really is amateurville. What is your reaction to this?

LANNY DAVIS: Well, two things. For someone who has worked there for 14 months I can give you a little inside information on how this works. When there is a leak at this level, this is a senior official, so-called. And a reporter does not use that expression, especially Jeffrey Goldberg, who really knows what's going on inside the White House, a great reporter and an insider, he doesn't use that unless it is a senior official.

If this situation were occurring, and it did when I was there, there were leaks like this, it would take Mike McCurry, then press secretary and I and someone named Rahm Emanuel -- you may heard of him, he was with us at the time in the political department next to the president -- it would take us maybe 5 minutes to figure out who it was and maybe 30 minutes to confront the person. And then it would be done and we would rap them or whatever it takes to say don't do it again.

There is no doubt they know who it is. I mean no doubt. So, that is number one. The reason is Jeffrey Goldberg talks to a few people. They know who Jeffrey Goldberg talks to because everybody in the White House, myself included, has special friends you would leak to in the press, that's the way it works. So, there is no doubt they know who it is.

Two, even if you're not pro-Israel, whoever used that expression, chicken-blankity-blank, is in fact chicken-blankity-blank. That person, using that expression who hides behind anonymity rather than standing up and saying this is who I am and this is what I think is chicken-blankity-blank.

And, thirdly, Israel and Netanyahu have done things that have aggravated the United States over the years, especially settlements. And sometimes the decisions on settlements have been counterproductive. However, Israel is our best friend. Israel is our key to national security in the United States. It's our only stable ally in the United States with military power that can help us when we are in a crisis and for anybody in the White House to use that expression about a democratically elected head of the government is, in fact, chicken-blank.

O'CONNOR: Hey, really quickly, do you have a hunch who this is? It sounds like you do.

DAVIS: Yes.

O'CONNOR: You want to say?

DAVIS: I cannot say because I'd be speculating but I'd narrow it down to two or three people and there is -- let me repeat this: there is no doubt that they know who it is and that person should be fired by the president. Period.

And it's not necessarily because I'm pro-Israel, which I am, it's because any idiot who uses language like that about a democratically elected head of government is and idiot and should be fired. (WMAL-AM, October 30, 2014)
