In other words, no one is supposed to notice that one government did interfere in the U.S. election ours. For months and months, the Obama administration was spying on Trump and leaking hints of its investigation to the press in the hopes of helping Hillary, who, by the way, colluded in the effort. Yet even the ruthless partisan Adam Schiff cant definitively cite a single proof of collusion on Trumps part, as he reluctantly acknowledged on Sunday. Given all the spying and leaking on Trump, wouldnt we know by now if they had any evidence of collusion? Spectator To say that Trump in this matter is more sinned against than sinning is an understatement. He was the blatant victim of political espionage and criminal leaking by the Obama administration, then when he complained about it, he was smeared anew. Two questions have swirled around this story: Did the Obama administration spy on Trump? Did Trump collude with the Russians? The answers are yes and no. The media wanted the answers to be no and yes. So now their game is to pretend like they didnt ask the questions or that the real story is Trumps imprecise tweeting. Notice that almost every story on the Rice revelation begins with throat-clearing about how it doesnt vindicate Trumps tweet, as if grading him on a tweet, in which he was clearly using wire-tapping as a synonym for spying and investigating, is the most pressing concern here.
I've done my bit to fight against the absurd claims that the Obama administration using intelligence agencies to identify and spy on Trump transition team members isn't "wiretapping", but there's a lot more here. Read the whole thing.
