An interesting little nugget from Foreign Policy...

...and it isn't what's in this piece. It's in what it implies.…

The piece itself reports that Trump marshaled unnamed aides to target the 3 ppl who could corroborate Comey's testimony.

The three are:
1) Andrew McCabe, Deputy Director of the FBI (who targets endlessly)
2) James Baker (the Gen. Counsel of the FBI who was just reassigned)
3) Jim Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff and senior counselor. We haven't heard much about him...

None of this is shocking. Trump has gone after McCabe and Baker. We know that...

The interesting bit is a subtle inference here.

The writer of this piece wrote a bombshell piece in December about Trump knowing Flynn had committed a crime.

That piece was damaging to Trump but helpful to WH Counsel Don McGahn.…

When that piece ran, I speculated that Reince Priebus and Don McGahn were both cooperating with Mueller and covering themselves...

...and Reince Priebus was leaking all of the McGahn-related dirt.


This piece would seem to make that suspicion even more likely.

Unlike the other doozies this author has written, this is the only one that specifically refers to "Trump Aides"... of which Reince Priebus was one.

Don McGahn isn't likely the source for this one...

...and if McGahn wasn't the source of this piece and Priebus was... that would make it even more likely he was the source of all three.

I'm sticking to my original answer:

Priebus is all up in Trump's grill and throwing haymakers

...and I'm sure there are more to come

p.s. it would be double extra-karmic if Reince Priebus was the leaker here because he allegedly fell out of favor with Trump and Co. for being a suspected leaker.
