Chris Mooney has posted up a article about the forthcoming release of Michael Mann's emails - it now appears likely that these will be disclosed to the public at the end of the day. Mooney looks to me as if he is trying to get his retaliation in first, spinning a story that a scandal we be found in the emails no matter what.
Those who went seeking went in with a theory--that wrongdoing has been done. They all believe "ClimateGate," shown by multiple investigations to be a fake scandal, was actually a real one. So that is their premise.
