And its founder, Matt Drudge, may be right, as he was with the Monica Lewinsky story way back when. The Drudge Report broke that story.
Or Drudge may be just creating melodrama to stir up conservatives. Time will tell, won't it.
However, the tone of Drudge's headline and the content of Damon Linker's op-ed in The Week he links to create scary concerns about what is going on in American government. As I absorb all this I feel I could be in the midst of Daniel Silva surreal spy novel like "The Black Widow."
Essentially, Linker frames the Michael Flynn mess as a "political assassination." American intelligence analysts took it upon themselves to leak to the media information about Flynn's communications with Russia.
Not that Linker defends Flynn.
What is wrong, argues Linker, is that those intelligence personnel - "spies" - have usurped authority that the American people didn't give them. No, the intelligence analysts are not elected. Also, members of the media have not been elected either.
What we Everyman and Everywoman come away with is the fear that American government is being run by powerful people who have not been elected. With their tech tools and media contacts they can and might just bring down a presidential administration.
If this is true, as the Lewinisky story had been, then we have lots more to worry about than just the seeming chaos in the White House. Those are not the real folks in charge. The intelligence crowd is.
But how do we monitor the "spies" and make them accountable for their values and behavior? After all, we take a mighty risk even trying that since they are monitoring us.
Prediction: Pop culture will be very busy hatching convoluted spy plots in the form of movies, television shows, videos, comics, novels and sudden fiction. The number of survivalists will increase exponentially. Children will develop sleep disorders.
