The beginning of Act II in “Draining the Swamp” has gotten underway.
Attorney General William Barr’s use and later defense of the word spying in Congressional hearings sets the stage for what should be a very entertaining and damaging episode for the deep state actors within the Obama administration.
While Barr’s legal definition of spying being either lawful or not based on the predicate reason behind the act is sound, that nuance is lost on most Americans. All they heard was that the AG said President Trump was spied on.
It was a subtle way of getting the narrative changed from collusion to spying.
And as my readers know, the spying Barr mentions was unlawful since it was based on fraudulent information as the basis or predicate reason to undertake the act.
Obama CIA Director John Brennan and James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, both set up spying operations on not only Presidential candidate Trump but members of Congress, the media and other individuals during their tenure.
As we await the report next week on Obama’s FBI Director James Comey and his role in the Spygate saga, more information on these illegal surveillance operations will come out.
The criminal referrals sent by Republican House members to the Justice Department will be revealed later this month. Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Justice Department, may release his detailed report towards the end of the month as well.
May will be the turning point on draining the swamp.
