The left asks what lengths the GOP will go to protect Trump


A roundup of editorials Monday takes a look at the dossier, the dueling memos and why the Republicans are OK with trashing the FBI.

From columnist Leonard Pitts Jr.: You won’t believe the FBI, but what President Donald Trump says is golden?

2. The Russians, the dossier and the memo
From The Ashland Daily Tidings: What do you do when one party acts as an enabler of a seriously flawed administration?

3. The memo debate Is a Republican sham
From The New Republic: The GOP deserves congratulations. The damage to the FBI and other institutions is very real.
