This is a hit piece, pure and simple. Even though the ninny naysayers (including here on FR) think this is over, the Deep State is plainly panicking. Just as Trump and his team know more that meets the eye, the evil minions see their plans being revealed. Response: bring out the slander.
This has been their MO for the last 5 years and one has to be a weak-minded fool not to recognize it by now.
