The Deep State is now so emboldened that they are not even trying to hide the lengths they went to in order to try to keep Trump out of office.
On Tuesday, while appearing on The View, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper actually admitted the Obama administration was spying on Trump during the presidential election.
In His Own Words
Clapper was sitting on a liberally biased panel trying to justify what the FBI and company did during the campaign.
Our friend Joy Behar, with complete disgust in her tone, ridiculed Trump for saying the FBI was “spying” on his campaign.
She then fed Clapper the line that Trump should actually be happy they were spying on him.
Clapper responded, “No they were not. They were spying on, a term I don’t particularly like, but on what the Russians were doing.”
So, they were spying the Russians, but only when they were with Trump… but that is not spying on Trump?
Is it just us or does that sound like Clapper backtalking to justify something he knows was wrong.
It was then rather amazing to hear one of the other hosts say that she did not like the term spying either, but preferred surveilling.
Funny how when you don’t like the term that applies, you simply get to change it in the liberal fantasy world to justify it.
Informant or Spy?
Clapper also admitted the FBI had an information within the campaign itself.
He then tried to justify that action by saying that what he did was “minimal.”
This very argument was the cause of some back and forth between Aaron Blake and Brit Hume.
Blake, in a series of tweets, tried to justify the spying.
When Hume shot him down and shredded his argument, he attempted to use the actual definition of spying via Merriam-Webster, Oxford, and Collins dictionaries.
Even that came back to bite him, however, as the meanings have the term “usually for hostile purposes” or “usually for unfriendly purpose” in them.
Hume was quick to point out the term “usually” means there are exceptions.
However, he was also quick to point out the Obama administration was in fact hostile towards Trump, so those definitions of spying 100 percent described what was happening during the campaign.
Our political system and its law enforcement agencies are being exposed, but sadly, too few people are smart enough to listen.
