The White House serves up a red herring on Russia

White House press secretary Sean Spicer offered the same argument during his wild news briefing Thursday. Spicer argued that the press was being much more skeptical of Trump's wiretapping claim than it has been of allegations that Trump colluded with Russia — despite there being no proof of the latter. “When Devin Nunes came out and said there was no connection that he saw to Russia — crickets,” Spicer said, adding: “Where was your passion and where was your concern when they all said that there was no connection to Russia?”

It's understandable that this storyline is frustrating to the White House. But the comparison between the coverage of Trump's wiretapping claim and the Russia-collusion allegations doesn't make much sense. And neither does Trump's suggestion that questions about possible collusion are “fake news.”
