Another Voice on the Risky Trump Play

Earlier I posted a link to an article by award-winning journalist Bart Gellman wherein he wondered if the Trump administration and the Inflated Rooster might be calling down some unwanted scrutiny with his continued crowing - I mean tweeting - about who leaked the names of his people who were supposedly in contact with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

Now, here's Marcy Wheeler - a well-known and respected blogger (Emptywheel) saying essentially the same thing.
It’s clear the right wing wants to shift this into Benghazi 2.0, attacking Susan Rice for activities that are, at least on the face of it, part of her job. But the only way the White House could be sure that she (or Ben Rhodes, who they’re also naming) were the ones to leak this would be to investigate not just those two, but also all the FBI (which would have access to this information without unmasking these names, which not a single one of these right wing scribes admit or even seem to understand). That is, the only way they could make credible, as opposed to regurgitated right wing propaganda accusations about leakers, is to have spied even more inappropriately than they are accusing the Obama White House of doing.

Maybe this has finally dawned on the Trumpettes. Maybe that's why His Lard Ass-ship hasn't squealed about it for a few days.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
