If you thought the New York Times was going too far in its efforts to excuse away the Obama Administration’s interference in the 2016 election, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Because the Washington Post wins the prize for the most absurd rationalizing ever:
Perspective: If the FBI used an informant, it wasn’t to go after Trump. It was to protect him. https://t.co/U6DC8IqRZy

Just … wow.
Talk about jumping the shark.
This is the journalistic equivalent of “Believe me, this hurts me much more than it hurts you.”
Democracy dies in darkness, but journalism dies at the Washington Post.
One can’t help but wonder what kind of headline the Washington Post would have written if it was George W. Bush’s DOJ and FBI that planted a spy in the Obama campaign.
But something tells me it wouldn’t have been that headline.
If, as this dimwitted opinion writer suggests, this covert operation was done to protect Donald Trump, why didn’t they let Mr. Trump in on the plan?
The fact that they hid it from him then spent the last two years denying they did such a thing kinda belies the premise of this piece.
They said we didn’t spy on campaign. When we pointed to CarterPage, they said he was out of campaign then (tho warrant allowed seizure of past campaign comms). Now, it’s undeniable they spied on campaign, so they say it was for campaign’s own good.

Let’s be blunt here. The most cataclysmic political scandal in our history is about to explode. And the Washington Post – not to mention the New York Times – are rushing to explain it away as nothing.
These same publications that exposed the Pentagon Papers, Watergate and even Abu Ghraib are scrambling to make excuses for a multi-agency espionage operation run by John Brennan and targeting the opposing party’s nominee for President.
Much more detail here about FBI spying operation against Trump campaign (with tons of false claims & NYT gaslighting that it’s not spying). Breathtaking scandal. https://t.co/h00wCWnMJD

You just know the details of this scandal are going to be damaging not just to the Mueller witch hunt but also to the former president’s administration.
Why else would these idiots in the news media be working so hard at preemptive poo-pooing?
They know it’s bad.
And they know just how devastating this will be for the Obama Administration.
When the facts emerge, Americans will learn that the only “legacy” Barack Obama can claim is his weaponizing the intelligence community to undermine our own democratic process.
So they’re spinning furiously in hopes that their obfuscation will protect the Administration they spent eight years protecting.
But if these idiotic stories are any indication, this spinning – like everything the Left does — is pushing too hard and too far.
And it is going to backfire spectacularly.
Case in point:
Last night all the guys at my regular bar in Midtown—not by any means a lunch-bucket institution, if you will—were saying the FBI thing has gone too far and enough with elite institutions trying to undo the result of a democratic election.
This is in Midtown Manhattan[!!!].

Let’s face it. When you lose Midtown Manhattan, that is never a good sign.
It never ceases to amaze me just how willing these so-called “news outlets” are to nuke their own credibility just to protect Obama’s sorry ass.
Finally, as always, if you want to keep informed about all the moving parts in this rancid scandal, make The Conservative Treehouse a regular stop in your daily Internet travels.
