Nico Pitney and Collusion with the White House

More

This is outside the normal purview of this blog, but I do find the continued controversy over whether or not Nico Pitney colluded with the White House before asking about his famous Iran question slightly odd. As far as I can tell there is no real evidence that the White House pressured him to ask a specific question, and no real contention that the question was anything but a tough one, and no real disagreement over the fact that the president dodged it. If this is what the vast leftwing conspiracy looks like, it's really not off to a good start.
