32. That's a ridiculous post from someone who admits to not having watched her show for the last

2 years. Rachel is an incredibly fact based journalist, there are few better in television. She was presented with this scoop by David Cay Johnston, and did due diligence herself. From having watched the show, it is clear that both Rachel and David believe this is a Donnie/John Miller leak drop, but she presented the show in a factual layered way before leading up to the interview with David. For all those new viewers, they will have been educated in where all the Russian stuff fits into where Trump is now. Trump may have leaked this to divert attention away from his lack of evidence in the Obama non wiretap, but he may have made a mistake in giving another chink of information in the fight to expose his financial dealings.

Her mistake was in hyping it 90 minutes beforehand on twitter.... scheming daemons Mar 2017 #1
