I find Lawrence O'Donnell's prediction credible.

I think it could be Dan Coats. I never liked his politics but he I believe he has loves his country.

1. He does sound credible but ....

I think there is more than just one person involved.

2. he is one of the few i feel really does care about his country. if it's someone like Kellyanne

i think they would just be trying to save their own ass and reputation for the future.

4. Yeah, Coats is the "I," but several people are behind this.

Coats is the one willing to take the fall if he must.

But I think this is far less about love of country and far more about protecting the Republican Party. These are cowards and assholes. The difference between them and Trump is that they're sane.

5. Credible but extremely difficult to isolate

I'm old enough to remember all the guesses toward Deep Throat, with one credible sounding version after another

If anyone is going to nail it quickly, I have confidence in Lawrence. I make Coats the favorite but only plurality and I'd still need decent plus odds on him. I certainly wouldn't take less than 5/2.

6. It would be great if it was compiled by a group of people.

There were a couple of other predictions by his guests. One thought maybe it was a group project that included Kellyanne. I always though this guest made a lot of sense but he was really off on this one. Jennifer Ruben thought it was probably a middle ranked member of the state department.

However, I am sure Trump will have fired them all by tomorrow, he is just that paranoid.

7. Just watched LOD show why he thinks it's Dan Coats and i'm totally convinced it's him now

the mentions about taxes and economy were throwing me off since people were mentioning mattis but i couldn't see him mentioning that.

but Coats who was senator and worked on those issues would make sense.

8. Remember when an insider started blogging about Fox News? They had him within a few hours.

I really don't think this would be hard for an earnest investigation to ferret out.

The miscreant may as well step out, stand up and be a hero rather than to be outed as a coward.
