I agree that Hotair is usually an accurate description. But in this case, they're not wrong. It's definitely in the realm of speculation. But you might call it educated speculation.

If you were Mueller and you had a cooperator whose name somehow hadn't leaked, why wouldn't you see what you could get on a wire? Would sort of be malpractice not to try.
