Members of the fake news media were caught off guard.
One of their worst cover ups just fell apart.
And one MSNBC host was left speechless when this Barack Obama crime went public.
Attorney General William Barr turned Washington on its head when he confirmed during his Senate testimony that the Obama administration and the FBI spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
To everyday Americans, this seemed obvious.
The FBI used human spies, FISA warrants and national security letters to put members of the Trump campaign under surveillance.
But to the fake news media this represented an existential crisis.
That’s because the fake news fully invested themselves in covering up this crime against the American people by claiming Donald Trump lied when he said Barack Obama “tapped his wires.”
Trump was telling the truth.
And that set off a panic in the fake news media.
No where was that more evident than with NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd.
Todd drank the Kool-Aid of the Russian collusion hoax and exploited his perch as the host of one of the most trusted public affairs programs to lie to the American people about the Russia investigation.
Barr’s testimony set Todd off on a meltdown during a recent broadcast of his daily MSNBC program.
“Attorney General Bill Barr did something extraordinary on Capitol Hill. He didn’t just say what the president wanted to hear, although he did do that and he didn’t make an explosive claim of what might have led to the Russia investigation. He did that, too. The country’s chief law enforcement officer went in front of Congress and gave credence to a factless conspiracy theory,” Todd began.
Todd continued, “Using the word spying plays into the president’s language that the Russia investigation to him is just a witch hunt. Every time they’ve brought up this allegation, there has been zero factual basis for it. Every effort to perpetuate the spying conspiracy theory has been debunked.”
Unbelievable, Todd still clung to the lie that Barr had no evidence to back up his claim of wrongdoing.
He added, “Barr said in a hearing he has no specific evidence about wrongdoing at the department. But you don’t get to put the toothpaste back into the tube, do you? Maybe it was because President Trump was making the same accusation literally as the attorney general was testifying before Congress.”
Later during the panel discussion, Todd said, “It doesn’t matter what the truth is, does it? I mean, I hate to say this now, but that’s the whole point. It feels like that basically the attorney general gaslit the country.”
It is a fact that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign.
And it’s also a fact that the FBI broke the law in doing so.
FBI regulations dictate that the Bureau can only use verified information in applications for FISA warrants.
But it is a known fact that the FBI used the fake news Steele dossier as the central piece of evidence to obtain a FISA warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
And in Senate testimony, James Comey and other FBI officials admitted they were not able to verify the central allegations – that Page and other Trump campaign officials colluded with the Russians – when the document was used as evidence to convince a judge to allow them to spy on an American citizen.
In addition, the FBI also misled the judge in the FISA warrant application by not disclosing that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Steele dossier.
The fake news media is no longer destroying their own credibility with these lies and hoaxes about Russian collusion.
That is long gone and few Americans believe anything they read or hear in the fake news media.
Now the danger is much greater.
The fake news is tearing apart the fabric of the country by digging in on a hoax that Donald Trump is an illegitimate President.
