Dana Millbank, WaPo shows he's not a journalist but rather a DNC shill.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank appears to have asked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to do the majority of the research for a negative column he wrote about Donald Trump in April 2016.
Milbank’s column was titled, “The Ten Plagues of Trump,” and featured a list of “outrageous things” said by Trump. One of the “plagues” listed by Milbank, for example, was “Blood” and centered around a quote from Trump about Megyn Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
Internal DNC emails suggest Milbanks asked for — and then leaned heavily on — DNC opposition research on Trump for the article.
   A man walks past The Washington Post on August 5, 2013 in Washington, DC after it was announced that founder and CEO Jeff Bezos had agreed to purchase the Post for USD 250 million. Multi-billionaire Bezos, who created Amazon, which has soared in a few years to a dominant position in online retailing, said he was buying the Post in his personal capacity and hoped to shepherd it through the evolution away from traditional newsprint. 
The day before Milbank’s article, DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker sent out an email to the DNC’s research team.
In the email — which was titled “research request: top 10 worst Trump quotes?” — Walker wrote, “Milbank doing a Passover-themed 10 plagues of Trump.”
The DNC research team worked together to come up with a list of things Milbank could use that was provided to Walker. (RELATED: Hill’s Shills: Leaks Have Exposed Journalists In Clinton’s Corner)
Of the 10 “plagues” listed by Milbank, eight of them matched up with suggestions from the DNC.
By press time, Milbank had not yet replied to a list of questions from The Daily Caller about his article and whether or not he used DNC research in crafting it.
