The pathetic Washington establishment media was all in a lather on Monday after FBI Director James Comey told members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that his agency has “no information” to support President Donald J. Trump’s tweeted allegations earlier this month that his predecessor “wiretapped him.”
Lost in the breathless finger-pointing and calls for Trump to apologize to former President Obama for making the allegation was the fact that the essential claim that Trump made – that he and his campaign members were, indeed, under some form of surveillance – was confirmed by the FBI director.
Per the Washington Post:
Comey … acknowledged the existence of a counterintelligence investigation into the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, and said that probe extends to the nature of any links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.
Without providing further details, such as when the investigation began, it’s safe to say that Trump himself didn’t order it. Let that sink in for a moment: That means someone in the last administration approved of and then ordered a “counterintelligence investigation” into the campaign of a political rival.

That ought to scare every single American, to think that some in our own government think it’s okay to invent a reason to investigate a rival political campaign.
But wait, you say. How do we know that the Obama regime had to invent a reason to probe Trump’s campaign associates?
Let’s examine the evidence or, rather, the lack of it:
— The entire “Russia hacked the election to help Trump” narrative was invented by the Democrats and spread as a legitimate accusation by their sycophants in the establishment press, as the president has said in a recent tweet.
