ABSOLUTE MUST READ> Obama Camp's FISA Surveillance Trump Denials | National Review https://t.co/VvgZLaBW2C— Roger Simon (@rogerlsimon) March 5, 2017
...Whatever President Trump’s intentions were in using Twitter to touch off this firestorm, one of the immediate effects has been letting the gas out of all those speculative Trump stories. The Democratic media is now furiously working to prove all of its own previous coverage of the Trump-Russia allegations was little more than idle speculation, every bit as lacking in hard evidence as Trump’s accusation that Obama was tapping his phones.
After months of unfounded allegations and badly sourced speculation intended to cripple his administration, maybe Trump wanted to prove that only one side of the partisan divide is permitted to make “wild allegations.” Obama’s plants in the Deep State can leak whatever they please, law and truth be damned. They can get an avalanche of hostile coverage moving with a few phone calls or emails. The media feels no contrition when the story turns out to be exaggerated or completely false, eagerly turning to the same Obama holdovers as sources for the next big phony scoop.
No one on Trump’s team, including the president himself, is allowed to reciprocate in kind. We are meant to feel bottomless outrage that Trump would level unsubstantiated allegations against Obama, but apparently, Obama’s minions can launch a constant barrage of unsubstantiated allegations against Trump.
Intentionally or accidentally, Trump just forced the press to admit how weak the bulk of those allegations were. The wiretapping timeline that has drawn so much attention since Saturday night was largely based on mainstream media reporting. The media is effectively saying, “Hey, wait, we were just blowing smoke. We didn’t think anyone would take those reports seriously and build a case that Obama was wiretapping Trump. We just wanted to make Trump look bad by pumping up vague rumors that he and his campaign might have been under observation!”...
For the media. The prior media reports based on earlier leaks. https://t.co/XSMgI0UhHb— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) March 5, 2017
“The evidence is overwhelming,” Levin said. Using public records and mainstream media reporting, he showed how the Obama administration obtained a FISA court warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s presidential campaign last year. The question is, to what extent did the Obama administration spy on Donald Trump’s campaign? - See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2017/03/mark-levin-on-fox-news-lays-out-the-case-on-obamas-spying#sthash.lZY9UrEP.dpuf
Levin took pains to reiterate that the evidence of spying by the Obama administration is not his own speculation. The mainstream media has presented the case in the course of a year of reports on the Obama administration. Levin just connected the dots. - See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2017/03/mark-levin-on-fox-news-lays-out-the-case-on-obamas-spying#sthash.lZY9UrEP.dpuf
