"Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein cautions against anonymous sources"

Via Instapundit:  Whatever it is that’s going on right now — a criminal investigation of President Trump for obstruction of justice, perhaps — took an interesting twist when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein issued a statement Thursday night cautioning Americans against stories attributed to anonymous officials … which would include just about every story published since January or so.
The very best part of the statement, though, was the way it managed to send journalists searching for that perfect word to describe it. What could Rosenstein mean, “be skeptical about anonymous allegations”?

Always a good idea.

If they haven't got the guts to say it out loud, they shouldn't be trusted.

He should have issued his statement anonymously.

Maybe Trump or someone close is leaking some of this. It could make the media look like lying hysterical fools and makes Mueller and company look untrustworthy.

If it's trump, that could blow up bigly in his face. It would take some good proof though.
