You know what I do with a bunch of anonymous rumours where nobody goes on the record, it's just stuff somebody 'heard' from somebody else they won't identify?

I ignore it.
Confirmation bias isn't something people use to drive their cherished beliefs. They also use it to drive their FEARS.
"A friend of a friend of mine who's CONNECTED, dude, he tells me NOTHING'S HAPPENING, Huber hasn't interviewed anybody!"

"Hey Brian, whaddaya think of that?"

[turns from watching a replay of the Cowboys/Saints game while simultaneously writing his next column]

"Nothing."
Funny how a friend of a friend who's CONNECTED told all these people NOTHING in a year of Huber digging into the Clinton Foundation.

It happened. Nothing leaked. Now it's public on-the-record info.

Spin that based on your anonymous sources all you like.

I don't care.
My source for Huber digging into the Clinton Foundation for over a year is Rep. Mark Meadows, who gave a radio interview in which he announced Huber's upcoming testimony to the House committee he sits on.
I'm pretty sure the SAME anonymous sources with those super-deep connections that didn't tell you anything about Huber investigating the Clinton Foundation over the past year are ALSO the same people telling you Huber 'hasn't done anything/interviewed anybody'.
It's ALMOST as if these anonymous sources with their fantastic connections are trying to EXPLAIN AWAY how they missed actual things that were happening, like Huber investigating the CF for a year or the McCabe grand jury being held in DC for over six months.
There are two competing narratives:

1) the Deep State is winning, nothing is happening behind the scenes, if anything was happening, it would be right out in the open where we could see it.

and

2) silent professionals wait until the investigation is OVER to reveal ANYTHING.
It's a free country. You can adopt & believe WHICHEVER narrative you want to.

But it's funny every single time narrative 2) has more evidence surface, it's immediately dismissed by the same anonymous sources with connections that didn't see it coming.
