6. Smoke but no fire.

When the story was first released, the news media jumped on it with both feet, presumably just to provide balance against all the Trump train wrecks.

But it was soon confirmed there was no quid pro quo (e.g., the billionaire requesting ambassador access never received it). So the new story soon devolved into cable news folks just shaking their heads and mumbling, "Hey, Hillary and her emails -- how `bout that!"

Nice try, but there's no there there.
