If you had any doubt left CNN is in the tank for the Democrats, consider Monday’s coverage of the Susan Rice bombshell. The pathetic cable TV leaders in fake news first ignored the story, then rushed to Rice’s aid, led by … wait for it … a former Obama administration employee.
Multiple former intel officials from GOP & Dem admins tell me the unmasking story is overblown. Tune in to @TheLeadCNN at 425p

Amazing how incestuous the media and Democratic Party is, huh?
Let’s not forget that on March 22 Rice lied about knowing any of this was going on:
In March, she said she didn't know anything about unmasking. New story: she knew a lot, but it was proper. Ok, guy. https://t.co/duyWUE6Chw

The along comes CNN hack Don Lemon:
“Let us be very clear about this. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team… was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president’s original claim. And on this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion.”
And they wonder why their ratings are in total freefall.
Amazing how quick they are to try and discredit a story, yet they’ve been obsessed with unverified claims against the president the past five months. Meanwhile, the spin continued this morning:
SCIUTTO: “I don’t know. I do know this, because I asked that question of people close to her yesterday. From her perspective she didn’t know what specific unmasking Devin Nunes and others are talking about, in part because that is something she asks — or asked during the regular course of her work as national security adviser. She asked to unmask names in multiple intelligence reports, some related to Russia and some not. To be clear, remember, Devin Nunes when he first came out with this didn’t say specifically Russia but others as well. I noted this earlier in the broadcast, when you do ask these questions they are meticulously logged by law. You can’t do it in secret. There’s a paper trail of it. We don’t know what the explanation is for her comment there, but I do know from speaking to people yesterday close to her that she doesn’t know specifically what Devin Nunes and others are accusing her of when it comes to unmasking because that was something sets in the regular course of her job.”
Because people close to a notorious liar are legitimate.
