Deputy AG gives Americans dire warning about anonymous sources

The interminable drip of leaked information from anonymous sources has reached a boiling point as the so-called Russian probe experiences shifts in narrative.

Americans are now being warned by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who said on Thursday evening that Americans should “exercise caution” before believing news reports which quote unnamed sources.

“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,'” Rosenstein said in a statement, “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’s statement came hours after the Washington Post dropped a new bombshell claiming that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Jared Kushner — Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law — over his finances and business dealings.

According to the report, “The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.” In other words, the story is probably fake news.
