The Washington Post fact-checkers were rested and ready after the Democrats pretty much gave them last week off by serving up very few facts to check during their convention, but they were on the job when it came time for the Republican convention.

Nobody runs cover for the Dems like a WaPo “fact-checker”:

Lately, Trump has focused on a January 2017 meeting that Obama held in the Oval Office with then FBI director James B. Comey, Vice President Joe Biden and national security adviser Susan E.
