Would you do everything you could to determine whether you could trust a source who lied to you before relying on him to treat a U.S. citizen guilty of treason?

Here’s a hypothetical question for journalists: Let’s say you managed to convince the translator in the room during the President Trump-Vladimir Putin meeting to speak to you, and you only, on the condition of anonymity, and you’re in the midst of writing an explosive, exclusive story for your publication. As you’re writing, you look up to see BREAKING NEWS on CNN, and listen as Wolf Blitzer reports the story you’re writing, with the exact fly-on-the-wall detail you received from your “exclusive” source.

So what’s your first move? Would you assume CNN must’ve convinced the Russian translator to talk to them and move on with your story without taking any action, or would you call your source to figure out where that CNN information came from? If your source denied talking to CNN, would you believe him and move on, or would you do whatever you could to determine whether you can trust this source on such an important matter?

Surely Americans would be chomping at the bit to vote in a “blue wave” to wipe out GOP majorities in the House and Senate and (perhaps literally) handcuff Trump for the last few months of his term.

But a strange thing happened on our way to this meeting with destiny: Trump and congressional Republicans have succeeded in kick-starting an economy that was running in low gear over the previous eight years thanks to a “jobless recovery.” While it’s still possible Democrats will make significant inroads into the GOP advantage, there’s no guarantee that either the House or Senate will flip back to Democrat control.

Meanwhile, a battle begun in 2016 and barely tempered during Hillary Clinton’s campaign now rages for the very soul of the Democrat Party. As evidence, look no further than your local college campus. Chances are you will find this is the age of the democratic socialist.
