[Ed. – The report has been readily available online since January 2017. Do visit the Michelle Malkin link for evidence that the theme of “suppression by Trump” was a talking-point flash-theme on the left.]
The mainstream media and some science publications, almost as if prompted by some sort of talking points email, latched on to a certain approach to a new government climate change report. The New York Times got the “leaked” ball rolling:
Nytimes says report on climate change leaked because source worried Trump admin would suppress findings https://t.co/XhBZRi5UvG

Bottom line: The report wasn’t “leaked,” just finally reported on with added spin to make it appear Trump’s has an interest in hiding the looming eco-apocalypse so nobody cancels upcoming wedding reception bookings at Mar-A-Lago or something.
Also, Trump might not want to bury the report anyway, because the report — to some degree — buries Al Gore.
