Anything to Get Trump

A few days ago the Washington Post published a story from an anonymous source that President Trump had shared intelligence secrets in a recent meeting.  The obliging press and the rest of the Left immediately jumped on the story and have continued to use it as additional fuel for their dream of impeachment.

Only one little problem.  It didn't happen.

National Security Adviser Gen. McMaster made a very public statement that he was in the meeting in question, and what is being reported never happened.  

Here's his statement:

"A brief statement for the record. There is nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people. The story that came out tonight as reported is false. The president and the [Russian] foreign minister [Sergey Lavrov] reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation. At no time — at no time — were intelligence sources or methods discussed and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of the state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Their on the record accounts should outweigh those of anonymous sources. And I was in the room. It didn’t happen. Thanks, everybody."

Think about it for a second.  If somebody had the goods on Trump, why in the world would they choose to stay anonymous?  They'd be hailed a savior and a celebrity, and live out the rest of their days in untold wealth.  Indeed, why not come forward and acquire those riches?

Simple.  Because they're lying.  Or they flat don't exist in the first place.

Take your pick.
