Liberal media types are constantly overplaying their hands on the Russia collusion narrative but this one takes the cake. Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post appeared on CNN this weekend and compared Russian meddling to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Isn’t that just a little over the top?

CNN Host Frets Fox News Will Be Critical of Guest Comparing Russia Interference to Pearl Harbor
The hot topic on “Reliable Sources” Sunday was the handing down of 13 indictments of Russian nationals on Friday for illegal “information warfare” efforts through social media trolling, identity theft and other malfeasances as part of a systematic effort by the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 election.
President Donald Trump has downplayed and even denied in the past that Russians meddled in the election and has called the notion his campaign colluded with the Kremlin a “hoax.” The White House said the indictments—which did not implicate any Americans—showed there was “no collusion.”
Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty criticized Trump and his allies for talking about what was not in the indictments rather than address the Russian efforts to interfere in American politics. Trump tweeted Sunday “they are laughing their asses off in Moscow” at the Russia investigation.
“The obvious reaction is to look at the what the indictment says and then to say, ‘How are we going to deal with this? How are we going to address this?'” Tumulty said. “You look at the president’s tweets this morning, and try to imagine if Franklin D. Roosevelt after Pearl Harbor had gotten on the radio and said that Tokyo was laughing at us … That is not what is called upon a president to do right now.”
