After her performance yesterday, it can't come too soon. It was a tour de force news briefing yesterday, if you are a fan of lying liars. * Making "baseless accusation" about Russians is unacceptable, she said, though the record is full of well-grounded accusations about Russian involvement in elections and dealing with Trump players.
