Fox News reported one fact about Obama spying on Trump that is bad news for Democrats
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI spying on the Trump campaign is due next week.
And already the Barack Obama Deep State is furiously spinning its findings.
And Fox News reported one fact about Obama spying on Trump that is bad news for Democrats.
Fake news CNN and the New York Times have recently run stories fed to them by the subjects of Horowitz’s report.
Subjects get to review the report for accuracy on their own actions and these Deep State agents are framing the findings in the most favorable light through leaks to friendly media outlets.
On Fox News, former Congressman Jason Chaffetz noted that Horowitz spent 18 months putting together a nearly 500 page report and you don’t go through all that work to praise the FBI for playing by the book.
A New York Times report alleging that the FBI never attempted to place undercover agents within Trump’s campaign for president is one of the ways the media is attempting to pre-spin Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the matter, Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz said Thursday.
Chaffetz, in an appearance on Fox & Friends on Thursday, said the New York Times article was “true to script” for the Democrats.
“By its very definition, a FISA application is a warrant to spy on somebody,” Chaffetz said. “This person, Carter Page, happened to be on the Trump campaign. So, the mere fact that they’re trying to discredit that says a lot about the weakness of their case and their allegations.”
“But, the reality is this happened and the Inspector General— this will be his fifth report that he’s come out with regarding the FBI at the highest echelons. And, let’s also remember: they didn’t spend 18 months working on this to say, ‘Hey, everything went swimmingly at the Department of Justice,’” Chaffetz added.
Horowitz report will undoubtedly contain bad news for the Obama Deep State and the FBI.
Horowitz already referred one FBI lawyer for criminal prosecution after they were caught doctoring an email to obtain a FISA warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The sources that fed stories to the Times and CNN have every incentive to paint the report in the best light possible to shape the expectations game and narrative surrounding the reports release.
