Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the Washington Post revelation that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee provided some of the funding for the infamous and largely discredited Trump dossier that involved significant collaboration with officials in Russia, and they shake their heads as Democrats insist this was just simple opposition research. They’re also unmoved by Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s denunciation of President Trump or Flake’s decision to fight back by retiring from the Senate, when it’s obvious the real reason he ended his campaign was because he can’t win. Before the GOP field gets too crowded, they enthusiastically endorse Ricochet’s Jon Gabriel for the open Senate seat, but Jim sees scandal looming on the horizon. And they get a kick out of the Washington Post fact checkers making a big deal out of determining that Virginia GOP gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie was wrong by claiming there were 2,000 MS-13 gang members living in one Virginia county when the best guess of law enforcement is there are just 1,400 violent criminals from that gang roaming area streets and neighborhoods.

    I have listened to you for many, many years, but if you have to have juvenile titles like “Jeff Flakes out” I can’t see myself listening to you in the future.

    Sorry, Gary, I couldn’t disagree more. Love the puns. Puns are a staple of good headline writing. Each to his own I guess.
