Fair Game

Late yesterday, the vaunted Washington Post caved and decided to act like a real newspaper.* They (finally) reported blockbuster news that many of us have discussed for weeks. Uranium One and Fusion GPS (here, here, here, and here) are major scandals that point to dishonesty and corruption on the part of the Clintons, the Obama administration, and sadly, the FBI.

In their story, WaPo indicates that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC funded Fusion GPS and (get ready) indirectly colluded with the Russians to smear the candidate Donald Trump; that the Obama Justice department looked the other way, and that the FBI did little to report their knowledge that some of the principals were under investigation.

I, for one, thought that the mainstream media would bury these stories indefinitely, but it looks like the dishonesty and corruption were too significant even for the trained hamsters. Risking a Machiavellian interpretation, could it be that Hillary has fallen out of favor among the newly formed hard-left Dems who have put the word out that she's now fair game? Nah ... couldn't be, could it?


* It's worth mentioning that The New York Times didn't print this blockbuster story on page one today. They'll be dragged into it kicking and screaming, I suppose, but the trained hamsters at the NYT would rather focus on the #FakeNews associated with Trump-Russia collusion. Pathetic. Further update: The NYT did place a detailed story in the politics section of the paper, but that begs the question why NYT felt compelled to report every insignificant nuance of the phony Trump collusion claims on page one, but somehow felt this blockbuster scandal could be relegated to a less scanned section of their paper and site.
