Several recent developments will be interesting to follow in the mainstream media. It’s their turn to squirm now. An article in the New York Post says that a special counsel may “probe Team Obama’s obstruction of justice.”
Whether or not an investigator is appointed, Congress itself intends to investigate former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her potential obstruction of justice and politicization of the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server.

Recently Russian President Vladimir Putin opined about the ongoing saga of former FBI Director James Comey’s mendacity: [emphasis added]
“It looks weird when the chief of a security agency records his conversation with the commander-in-chief and then hands it over to media via his friend,” Putin was quoted by Russia’s Tass. “This is strange. What is the difference then between the FBI director and Mr. Snowden? He is not a head of the special services, but a human rights activist.” …
“I am not familiar in detail with the testimony given by former FBI director Comey,” Putin said during a question and answer session with citizens. “Again, he gave no evidence of this (Russian meddling).”

The mainstream media, the Democrat Party, the erstwhile losing Clinton campaign, and progressives everywhere are still hyperventilating about the Russians allegedly interfering in the 2016 election. There’s no proof, of course, and this is not an opinion shared by all of our intelligence agencies. The FBI, for instance, does not agree on Russia’s alleged motive, even if Russia were behind the hacks of the DNC and John Podesta’s email. As might be expected after all this brouhaha, the CIA apparently now denies the entire scenario.

Important Cable Releases by Wikileaks
Days 1 – 6
The Drip, Drip, Drip of Wikileaks
This is a composite of the most important information that was released by Wikileaks to various news outlets. This references Days 1 – 6 by the UK’s Guardian. Of the reported 250,000 downloaded cables, only a fraction have been released. These serve as insight into our government’s relationships with other countries. They also may permanently damage our image throughout the world, highlight our inability to maintain our secret documents, and otherwise inhibit a trusting relationship with many countries. This doesn’t cover the danger that those who divulged their opinions ” in secret” may now face in the countries they represent.

Is it This Man?
Vladimir Putin, Russia's Prime Minister
Coming on the heals of Wikileaks’ document dump, and its suspiciously cherry-picked information, especially targeting Hillary Clinton and her diplomatic spy corps, it is noted that there was no information disparaging Obama. It is as though the little quips were embarrassing, but most wouldn’t cause a diplomatic incident unless those exposed were “thin skinned.” After all, most characterizations or suspected government activities have been written previously by one or several journalists. There were very few surprises in the contents of the diplomatic correspondence.
