Nothing surprises me when it comes to the media

Gateway Pundit: "WaPo Fails to Identify ‘Close’ Clinton Adviser Used in Ignatius Column to Clear Hillary in Email Scandal."
Ignatius’ lead defense witness for Clinton is one Jeffrey Smith who is given four paragraphs of quotes defending Clinton. Ignatius identifies Smith as “a former CIA general counsel who’s now a partner at Arnold & Porter, where he often represents defendants suspected of misusing classified information.”
Smith is the only named source in Ignatius’ column.
Ignatius and The Post failed to disclose that Smith served as a ‘close’ national security adviser for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and that Smith has a history with the Clintons going back to at least President Bill Clinton’s election in 1992.
Shame: I always considered the Washington Post to be a good, balanced paper unlike those left-wing hacks at the NY Times.

I'm sure that the better and more personally this Jeffrey Smith knows Rodham Clinton, the more competent he is to judge whether she committed crimes. As for us readers, his previous and/or continuing connections with her are irrelevant.
