It certainly is not out of the ordinary in a situation like this.
Yet here the promoters of this particular news thread are, trying to make it sound like it is some sort of dramatic moved by the Special Counsel.
If you guys want to be taken seriously by the readers here you will need to tone down the hyperbole. Basically what you're doing is what the National Enquirer does, or did. You take a routine activity and attempt to turn it into some sort of major event.
It makes you look silly, or worse.
If you really want people to sign up for your bulletins and to buy your merch, then maybe focus on delivering solid analysis and real news. If you continue to blow things our of proportion and present everything with Yellow Journalism type headlines and innuendo, you're going to become a laughing stock.
What's more, the Democratic Party is desperately trying to come off as the sane adults in the room, which is difficult when groups like the one behind this story and its over the top headline are forever coming out of the gate with childish exaggeration and hyperbole.
