The Frothy Right Is Furious that Peter Strzok Pursued the Guy Leaking about Carter Page (Goes to Empty Wheel, more at the link):

Close to midnight on June 3, 2017, Lisa Page texted Peter Strzok to let him know that Reality Winner was in custody. Page used the same shorthand she and Strzok (and presumably, those around them) consistently use to describe leak investigations, ML, media leaks.

They used the term elsewhere, as when Strzok said “media leaks and what I do for a living” when responding to the first reports that Mueller was investigating Trump (and hypothesizing about who the WaPo’s likely sources were).

Mark Meadows is trying to make this out to be some sort of witch hunt against Donald Trump. Ms. Wheeler takes apart Mr. Meadows’s narrative.

That said, the people who need to read things like Marci Wheeler or watch Rachel Maddow probably won’t. Conservative pundits like Mr. Meadows might, but only to cherry-pick information they want for their narrative.

I get that political positions are about narratives and emphasising what you think is important over another position. That said, if we can’t agree on facts, we don’t have a political system any more.
