As Twitchy reported earlier Thursday, The New York Times dropped a bit of a bombshell with its report confirming that the FBI did indeed send a spy to meet with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos. Byron York, Mollie Hemingway, and others suggested the spy story was “shaking loose” now to get ahead of the impending release of an inspector general’s report.

The Federalist’s Sean Davis argued what’s most interesting is who’s ignoring the story:

Uh oh … let’s see how many times the spy’s name appears on the Washington Post website:
