Around 10:45 AM MT on Tuesday, National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster gave a very short explanation/denial of the story that President Trump gave highly classified information to the Russians.
And yet, by the afternoon, this had been pushed down to the second biggest anti-Trump furor after the NY Times reported that former FBI Director Jim Comey wrote in a memo that President Trump suggested to him that the Bureau "let this go", with "this" referencing the investigation into former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn.
Fox News's Bret Baier says "we know" that the Trump/Comey meeting happened on Feb 14, and that Comey took very detailed notes after the meeting and that he was "very uncomfortable." We don't know that Comey wrote what the Times reported, nor what else is in the memo, nor what other memos there are. And of course we have the statement (which I played on the show the other day) from Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe that nothing has impeded any FBI investigation into anything throughout any of the Trump administration.

Here's Dave's book:
Just one example, from the guy who revived his show's failing ratings by going off the deep end in his anti-Trump rantings.
