No. Not that one. The other one.
Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families [and formerly of The Family Research Council] points out that Donald Trump’s charges relating to wiretapping by the Obama administration really are not that far fetched:
When Fox reporter James Rosen began filing stories that were embarrassing to the Obama Administration, the Justice Department seized his phone records and emails. They also went after his parents’ phone records.
The Obama Justice Department seized the records of 20 phone lines at the Associated Press too.
When Sharyl Atkinson was tenaciously investigating a number of Obama scandals, someone hacked into her computer. Experts brought in by CBS confirmed the sophisticated hack, which Atkinson later claimed was executed by a “government-related entity.”
I could go on. But, in closing, I’ll mention the most obvious abuse — the IRS operation to deny Tea Party organizations tax exempt status while conservative groups were being aggressively audited.
Of course, it sounds absurd that a president would spy on a candidate.
On the other hand, if we learned anything from the Lois Lerner situation…we know that there are smug, arrogant individuals who believe they are justified in using the power of government to advance an agenda. Actually, that’s about all there is in Washington, D.C.
