Creating fog in the war against The Donald

It's clear now that The Left has launched a full-scale war against Donald Trump.

In the latest assault, The Washington Post declared that The Donald had released secret information to the Ruskies. Everyone in the meeting where this supposedly occurred has said it isn't true. That's not the point. The point is that the Post got everyone talking about it last night. Charlie Martin writes:
At 5:01 PM, right on time for the evening news stories, the Washington Post ran a story saying that President Trump revealed "highly classified information to the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador." Predictably, this was all the news on the 6 PM news shows. 
Now, I've gotten to be pretty cynical about the legacy media, and even more so in the last year.  Circa had this story: "What a breathless media got wrong about Trump, Comey and Russia this week." It's a list of 23 items. Just in the last week. I feel entitled to be cynical.
The Washington Post newsroom, in a show of professionalism, applauded as the Russia-leak scoop broke the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.
Because this latest frumpup isn't true, it will go away. What won't go away is the Democrats' relentless charges that Trump "colluded" with Russia to win the election. It won't go away, because they won't let it.

Forget Trump saying that Comey had told him three times that he wasn't being investigated. Look instead to this:
At a business meeting of the Judiciary Committee not devoted to any aspect of the Russia affair, Republican Chairman Charles Grassley and Democratic Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein both addressed the subject. 
In a carefully-written statement, Grassley said that he and Feinstein were briefed by Comey on the particular individuals targeted in the current FBI investigation. And Grassley strongly implied — in fact, did everything but come out and say directly — that the president is not one of those individuals. 
"Mr. Comey did brief Ranking Member Feinstein and me on who the targets of the various investigations are," Grassley continued: On Tuesday, the president's letter said that Director Comey told him he was not under investigation. Senator Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the president's statement.
On Tuesday, the president's letter said that Director Comey told him he was not under investigation. Senator Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the president's statement.
Trump was elected to dismantle the Deep State / Fourth Estate Complex, and you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

Watch how disappointed the CNN Chipmunk is when he can't get Feinstein to dump on Trump.
