I think you could be right....Curl is being taken.
Team Obama may have learned this strategy from Nixon. Here’s how it goes. Send a mole to contact a conservative reporter. Tell him you got some exclusive info and then delay feeding it to him so he looks like a Donald Trump circus clown, then you make him desperate for the documents so feed him bogus documents so when he exposes the story it appears that he didn’t do his homework and he looks like a fool when the Liberal MSM debunk his IRS story. I read about this strategy when I read Robert Novak’s autobiography and he described his painful relationship with Nixon.
