Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Warns Against Anonymous Sources

“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous “officials,” particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Rosenstein said in a statement that was being circulated on social media.

Rosenstein added that the Department of Justice “has a long-established policy” not to confirm these kinds of allegations.

Still unclear is whether the Rosenstein Memo also covers those FAKE NEWS STORIES you might’ve seen on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, Washington Post, and locally in The Morning Fishwrap. 

For example, if you read the Washington Post report claiming President Trump was under investigation for Obstruction of Justice by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, you will immediately note the first paragraph was framed specifically around “Anonymous Officials.”  Again, those same “anonymous officials” are mentioned in a Washington Post report claiming Jared Kushner is being investigated.

The Blower says lot of the stuff you see on TV or read in the papers attributed to anonymous sources is flat-out wrong. And the leakers obviously have nefarious motives.
