    The Friday-release is the clue... So pundits can churn the distraction-mill for 48-hours. To me, it looks like more pay-for-play about the pay-for-play.

    'Arrests'... note Evan Perez's name in the CNN-byline. He's the friend of that disgraced Simpson 5th-pleader from Fusion-GPS.

    Leaked to CNN seems more likely.

    Hoping to dominate the Sunday talking head shows, supplanting the Dossier-Clinton-DNC and Uranium One stories would be my guess.

    Yup, either some election law violation found by accident or the "process crime" of providing testimony that proved incorrect or was contradicted by a source Mueller, et al, preferred to believe.

    Though the possibility can't be utterly dismissed that Mueller senses his anti-Trump usefulness is ending and he's going to break cover with something lunatic.

    I imagine speculation is rampant. Unless Mueller is going lunatic it's probably another Scooter Libby lump-of-Fitzmas-coal

    Special counsels have a dismal track record of ever really getting anyone from the supposed ringleaders or on the actual topic they were supposed to investigate, with Watergate being the only one ever that really did strike oil. Susan McDougal was the only person who went to jail in the Whitewater investigation, and that was for contempt for refusing to answer grand jury questions about Bill Clinton's involvement (Probably wise on her part, a year and a half in jail beats the shit out of a Clinton-assisted suicide), and Scooter Libby was the only person who went to jail in the Plame witch hunt, for a completely trumped-up 'Lying to investigators' charge.

    The strategy in these cases is to bust somebody on something and then squeeze them to flip them on everyone else. It's a tactic right out of a police procedural TV drama. In reality the only time special counsels have made it work that way was Watergate.

    The odds are that this is not going to be somebody extremely close to Trump, and they are also against it being anything at all to do with Russian collusion in anything to do with the election.

    If anyone believes that this is anything but a diversion away from the recent Uranium One details coming out are either completely ignorant of reality, completely intellectually dishonest, or just plain brain dead. Can be all 3 but can't be neither.
