As Twitchy told you, CNN analyst — and former FBI special agent — Asha Rangappa got called out for this bogus claim about Scooter Libby:

Buck Sexton jumped in to set the record straight:

Tapper didn’t appreciate Sexton’s correction:

OK, but:

Sexton never did get his proof.

That could get a bit messy.

Tapper elaborated in a series of tweets:

Maybe there’s “some confusion out there” about what Libby did because journalists aren’t laying out all the facts before weighing in.
