CNN "exclusive" that takes Ecuador embassy surveillance records against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange contains a prime example of what @barryeisler has referred to as "information laundering."

It involves Andrew Müller-Maguhn and the claim that he was "courier" for WikiLeaks.
Anonymous U.S. officials suggested to the Washington Post in January 2018 that Russia may have used Müller-Maguhn to deliver emails to WikiLeaks. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
Müller-Maguhn responded, telling WaPo it “would be insane” for him to hand deliver sensitive files, especially when CIA has labeled WikiLeaks “non-state hostile intelligence service.”

“How many of you wouldn’t be scared shitless by head of CIA declaring you next target?
Though WaPo report did not substantiate any details involving Müller-Maguhn, the Mueller report referenced the report in suggesting to the public that Müller-Maguhn "may have assisted with transfer of stolen documents to WikiLeaks."
The CNN report on embassy surveillance records against Assange states, "The special counsel report on Russian meddling named Müller-Maguhn as potential courier of hacked emails to Assange."

But Washington Post named Müller-Maguhn, and they did because of unnamed U.S. officials.
In the cycle of information laundering, the next mention will come from U.S. government officials likely suggesting CNN report showed Müller-Maguhn was involved in transporting stolen emails. The more it's laundered, the more suspicions transform into orthodoxy.
