The enemies of President Donald Trump had failed miserably. First came the comical testimony of James “I Could Be Wrong” Comey, the fired FBI Director. Then came the “grilling” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who acquitted himself well. (Background: From Russiagate, With Love, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, June 14, 2017.)
It was time to double-down on use of the “secret sources” (ss). The ss were ordered by the Deep State to pester overtime the CIA conduit, The Washington Post. And so, almost immediately after Jeff Sessions emerged victorious from the field of honor (Senate hearing, June 13th), the Post ran another of its endless secret sources stories.
Un-named “officials” who speak from the shadows and cannot be cross-examined have told the Post that a “widening probe” now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice. 
“It worked with Nixon,” decided the Deep State. In the old Watergate playbook, Alexander Haig had played the role of Deep Throat (it was NOT Mark Felt). Bob Woodward, a Naval officer, was hurriedly “sheep-dipped” into the disguise of reporter at The Washington Post. The CIA-infiltrated newsrooms of the nation worked as an amplifier for whatever they were fed by the Haig/Woodward duo.   
“It worked with Nixon,” decided the Deep State. “Ah”, but noticed the local newspaper, “Nixon didn’t have a Twitter.” 
Nixon also did not have an array of citizen journalists offering “alternative facts” on the Internet. This ain’t 1974, baby.
In their respective testimonies of June 8th and June 13th, James Comey and Jeff Sessions both agreed that a February 14, 2017 report by The New York Times was garbage. That report may have been “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence”, by Michael S. Schmidt, et al. Former FBI Director Comey explained, though, the bind he was then in: Back when he was an FBI Director, he could not openly say, “The Times report is wrong.” If he had done so, it would have compromised an ongoing investigation. It would have been a “slippery slope”: If Comey had openly commented on the Times story, where would it stop?
It is “TVs most irresistible reality series”, commented the local newspaper.  It is Russiagate. But who is writing the script?
