short article and an interesting read.
But, this is what seems to have the most compelling implications....(emphasis mine)

“Many of the matters reported, if accurate, would have been known to the defense, to witnesses who were interviewed or subpoenaed for documents, or to other investigators examining overlapping issues,” prosecutors wrote. “The cited articles, in short, do not establish any factual basis for the inquiry that Manafort asks the Court to undertake.”

The prosecutors noted that the leaks could have originated from members of Congress or their aides.

imagine members of congress or their aides being served a subpoena and forced to testify.
Never gonna happen. But, it's still kinda fun to play the "what if" game on this.
