What’s striking about the Times story is the spin it took. Trump had previously claimed he had been “wire tapped” (quotation marks in his original Tweet), leading to media screams that he prove it. The Times’ own reporting proves that President Trump and his associates were spied on.
The Times, rather than admit Trump had been vindicated, instead focused its attention on the question of who leaked the reports to Nunes:
There have been multiple admissions from Obama admin officials that they spied on Trump and his team. From some reports, that spying was going on before Trump won the nomination, and continued up until January 20th.
And the media, Obama's Praetorian Guard, his lapdogs and boot-lickers, the craven, sniveling know-nothing anal warts who spent eight years kissing Obama's ass, are now in full damage control mode for their God, their King and their Emperor, Bathhouse Barry Obumblefuck.
Huh. Go figure.
This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.
Gotta add this from Powerline:
When Donald Trump succeeded Barack Obama as president, they went from a gaggle of slobbering groupies to a pack of baying hyenas. Some people approve of the head-snapping, 180-degree reversal, while others don’t. But everyone knows it happened.I think the description "a gaggle of slobbering groupies" is incredibly kind to the media.
