Okay, I have to tell you this story because it is too bizarre not to share.
So as some of you know, I am in a reading phase. And yesterday afternoon I started the book Shoot the Moon by Billie Letts.
It’s not one of her best. Honk and Holler Opening Soon is probably my favorite. But it’s an okay book.
Anyhow, the story is this: After the death of both his parents, a wealthy veterinarian from Beverly Hills discovers that that he was adopted. His real name is Nicky Jack Harjo and he was born in DeClare, Oklahoma.
So he decides to travel to Oklahoma to find his birth mother only to discover that she was murdered in 1972 – on the same day her baby son Nicky Jack went missing.
The book is his journey not only discovering who he is and who is mother is, but also what happened on that fateful day.
Now, here’s the part that’s bizarre.
One of the characters from the 1972 crime is a rookie reporter from Tulsa who was covering the story.
And her method of getting the scoop was sleeping with the Sheriff.
When I got to that part, I thought to myself, “Sleeping with a source for a scoop. Hmmm. I wonder if any reporter getting these illegal leaks has tried that method.”
I kid you not!
That actually went through my mind.
So you can imagine how stunned I was when I saw the report about the Senate staffer who was leaking classified information to the reporter he was sleeping with.
Who knew News outlets employed Honey Traps?
The lengths they’ll go to get a story.
It ain’t just fiction.
The reporter in question, one Ali Watkins, ironically sent out this tweet five years ago.
I guess she changed her mind.
Color me surprised.
Gives a whole new meaning to the term Deep Throat, doesn’t it?
Or, the original meaning as the case may be.
And while this inventive reporter was sleeping with a source to get these leaks, she played dumb on Twitter.
She said, giggling behind her hand. pic.twitter.com/rIvScln8V0

The SSCI read is, Trumpster lawyers will leak info about upcoming appearances, blame the committee, then use as a pretext not to cooperate.

You know, Sundance over the Conservative Treehouse is right. The Senate Intel Committee is the most corrupt committee in Congress.
The indictment of James #Wolfe is a MAJOR embarrassment to both parties on the long corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee. Wolfe was their "non-partisan" head of SECURITY. I dealt w/ him before. The Senate Intel Committee was supposed to monitor the IC, not be an extension of IC.

Something tells me this James Wolfe won’t be the only one indicted over these illegal leaks.
But he might be the only one who was rolling over in bed to leak his stories to the reporter lying next to him.
It’s like a plot from “24.”
