The Media Sanitizes Spygate Again

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Yes, Obama was spying on the rival party’s presidential candidate — the very behavior for which the Democrats seek to impeach Trump. The difference is that Obama didn’t just consider such a politicized investigation of a foe; he followed through on it to disastrous effect. Trump’s complaints are all just a “conspiracy theory,” chants the media chorus, which the Horowitz report will “debunk.” Only in Washington, where the ruling class’s propagandistic quibbles are used to obscure reality with the help of the media, would such extensive and fruitless spying be deemed “proper.” The FBI’s scheming reeked of impropriety from beginning to end, and no amount of fragrant semantics can drive that odor away.
