Skip to comments.As the Dossier Scandal Looms, the New York Times Struggles to Save Its Collusion Tale

...Seven months after throwing Carter Page as fuel on the collusion fire lit by then-FBI director James Comeys stunning public disclosure that the Bureau was investigating possible Trump campaign coordination in Russias election meddling, the Gray Lady now says: Never mind. Were onto Collusion 2.0, in which it is Papadopoulos then a 28-year-old whose idea of résumé enhancement was to feign participation in the Model U.N. who triggered the FBIs massive probe by . . . wait for it . . . a night of boozy blather in London.
Whats going on here?
Well, it turns out the Page angle and thus the collusion narrative itself is beset by an Obama-administration scandal: Slowly but surely, it has emerged that the Justice Department and FBI very likely targeted Page because of the Steele dossier, a Clinton-campaign opposition-research screed disguised as intelligence reporting. Increasingly, it appears that the Bureau failed to verify Steeles allegations before the DOJ used some of them to bolster an application for a spying warrant from the FISA court....
...Democrats and their media friends have been moving the goal posts in an effort to save their collusion narrative. First, we were led to believe the dossier was no big deal because the FBI would surely have corroborated any information before the DOJ fed it to a federal judge in a warrant application. Then, when the Clinton campaigns role in commissioning the dossier came to light, we were told it was impertinent to ask about what the FBI did, if anything, to corroborate it since this could imperil intelligence methods and sources and, besides, such questions were just a distraction from the all-important Mueller investigation (which the dossier had a hand in instigating and which, to date, has turned up no evidence of a Trump-Russia conspiracy).

Wrongo....the leftist media will COVER for them!!
They’ll just move to “consiracy” and “unfitness”.
The NYT is a brain dead amplifier and speaker for the globalist agenda.
It won’t end, or should I say it won’t end well for them.
The NRO is dead to me and I suggest every patriot do the same.
I am proud to say that I was banned from posting comments on their pathetic little site in early 2016. Insulting the pathetic squish David French is verboten in GOPe land.
No, the problem is with Jill Stein.
I am surprised to see this clear and critical a report in the New World Order (er, NRO)
The NY Slimes keeps spinning and obfuscating as they sink out of sight in their big vat of slime.
Remember the outrage when Trump said Obama was “tapping his wires”?
Long rambling article, but he nails it at the finish.
And last week Trump give the NYT an “Exclusive” interview, and their seat in the White House press room is secured.
If they attacked he, lied repeatedly about my family, no way on God’s earth I would kiss their butt.
And who besides an idiot would believe a word the lying media says?
Roger Stone claims that they are going to try to remove Trump via the 25th amendment. Personally, I don't believe such a plan would work, unless the CIA figured a way to infect him with severe encephalitis or similar malady.
What does putting on the brakes have to do with this?
I thought Roger Stone claimed he had Polonium poisoning a while back. Why is he still breathing?
Lindsey Graham confirmed the Democrat dossier was the bases for the Fisa warrant. This is a scandal that destroys the FBI!!
