In Email/Dossier Investigations by Katie Weddington

April 11: Leak Strategy initiated. Weismann briefs 4 @AP reporters that result in at least 4 downstream articles, some cited in SCO warrants against Manafort.

Essentially, @FBI cited a leak that the DOJ had facilitated just like in @carterwpage FISA.

Also on Tues April 11@nakashimae at @WaPo publish their FISA story for the first time.
