President Donald Trump — whose administration finds itself is besieged on all sides — is planning to set up substantial communications and rapid-response infrastructure to tamp down leaks and reign in negative coverage, according to Axios:
West Wing officials are prepping for a years-long war with investigators and the bureaucracy, with plans to beef up legal, surrogate, communications and rapid-response teams as part of a “new normal” for President Trump — besieged.
The plan comes in response to a tumultuous few weeks for Trump, who finds himself mired in scandals unearthed by enterprising reporters — with a little help from anonymous sources in the White House and intelligence community.

I'm pretty sure you don't understand all this.
Leaks have been happening.
Leaks can kill people, due to their secure nature. In the military it's called COMSEC and OPSEC.
If the leaks and the leakers aren't fixed, the system is no good. So this must be a priority, above almost everything else. Once the leakers have been caught and made a large example out of, making sure that anyone who thought it was a good idea to spread classified information to the press, also fully understands prison and the niceties that go along with it, we can get back to trying to run the country.
Think of it like your kids were telling the IRS about every lie you ever told about your taxes. Even if you are innocent, expect an audit.

Governments (including past administrations), private corporations and "media" outlets have been employing shills for years.
Doesnt make it right, just making the point that its nothing new.

I thought you meant 'street fighters' in the George Soros sense of the term, like BLM and Antifa.
But you meant people that work for law offices and public relations firms.
