It was the REEEEEEEE heard ‘round the world when Attorney General Barr acknowledged that President Trump was right: his campaign was spied on.
Suddenly the same news media that repeatedly invites Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Maxine Waters on their programs to make scurrilous, evidence-free claims about President Trump were shrieking that Barr made this claim “without evidence.”
The same media that slobbered all over BuzzFeed’s evidence-free report of Trump telling Cohen to lie to Congress are beside themselves with anger that Barr offered no evidence supporting his claim.
No evidence other than the publicly known use of covert overseas intelligence assets, domestic intelligence assets, FISA warrants, and national security letters. You might want to stick to parroting intel chief leaks and whining in DMs. https://t.co/Jtu1sKq9Yt— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) April 10, 2019
But this is how the media rolls.
Whenever someone says something that goes against the approved narrative, they quiver with outrage and bellow “Without evidence!!!!”
The problem for the media is there’s far more evidence that the Obama Justice Department and Intelligence apparatus spied on the Trump campaign than there is for RussiaGate.
Hell, there’s more evidence backing up SpyGate than there is man-made Climate Change.
For Pete’s sake, even the media’s favorite Honorable ManTM admitted last year the FBI placed “confidential human sources” in the Trump campaign.
Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?— James Comey (@Comey) May 23, 2018
And, just to prove the ResistanceLOL not only knew about the spying, but wholeheartedly approved, even Trump Troll Brian Krassenstein acknowledged it when he replied to Comey’s tweet:
Perhaps if Trump didn’t want spies looking at his campaign he shouldn’t have hired Russian spies for his campaign— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) May 23, 2018
The Washington Post even did a piece on Stefan Halper titled “Who is Stefan A. Halper, the FBI Source Who Assisted the Russia Investigation.”
Such a shame the English language has not developed a shorter, say 3-letter, word or more clear way to describe this than “the FBI source who assisted the Russia investigation.” https://t.co/7FuP7IjxWa— Mollie (@MZHemingway) May 22, 2018
Resident RussiaGate lunatic and former FBI agent, Asha Rangappa last year wrote a piece at the WaPo titled “The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him.”
So what Asha was saying is, “Sure, we spied on Trump. But it was for his own good. Which is why we kept it a complete secret from him.”
And why was the media scrambling to justify this last year?
Because EVIDENCE came out showing that, yes, they placed an informant in the Trump campaign to … wait for it … spy on them.
As Scott Adams pointed out last year:
Four things to understand about SPYGATE: 1) There was no spy in the Trump campaign. 2) The spying that did NOT happen was totally justified. 3) It would be bad for national security to identify the spy who doesn’t exist. 4) His name is Stefan. #SPYGATE— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) May 23, 2018
People, there is a BIG difference between a “spy” and a person who is contracted by an intelligence agency to secretly infiltrate an organization, provide information, and manipulate outcomes. Why is this so hard to understand? #SPYGATE— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) May 23, 2018
But when AG Barr points out what is factually evident even to the media, those same media outlets set their hair on fire and shriek, “Without Evidence!!!!”
Now, nobody believes SpyGate is evidence-free — not even the Reeeeeeeeing cranks on cable news.
They’re not hyperventilating in apoplectic rage because Barr has no evidence.
No. What’s got their knickers in a twist is they know evidence exists and this new Attorney General plans to look into it.
This is panic pure and simple. The news media is complicit in SpyGate and boy are they terrified that their … what’s the word … collusion, may just be dragged kicking and screaming into the clear light of day.
The guy who used a fake dossier to upend a nation’s politics is upset that an Attorney General might hold him accountable for his treachery.— Bryan Dean Wright (@BryanDeanWright) April 11, 2019
What a great moment for Liberty. https://t.co/SLRmzOhbbQ
The Mueller “investigation” was supposed to cover up the Obama Administration’s nefarious attempt to meddle in the 2016 election.
And after the media’s dreams were dashed by Mueller, having SpyGate exposed would be cataclysmic – not just for the Obama Administration, but for the American news media as well.
As the saying goes, if you’re getting flak, you know you’re over the target.
And all the flak the media is firing into the air since Barr’s testimony is far more revealing than even the media cares to admit.
