I remember the “Spy vs Spy” cartoons when I was growing up. Each spy was constantly trying to outfox the other one. Just when on spy thought he had won, he realized he had fallen for another booby trap. I thought the cartoons were hysterical.
Donald Trump is the master of the spy vs spy routine. Trump has an easier task because liberals are gullible. Today was a classic example. Trump sent out the following tweet at 6:34 a.m.
“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!”
The main stream media immediately seized the day. They viewed this as another example of the angry out of control Trump trashing his Attorney General. But in their haste, they overlooked something important. The main stream media is finally commenting on the abuse of FISA by the Obama administration. Because Trump criticized the choice of Mike Horowitz to lead the investigation, Democrats cannot accuse Trump of orchestrating a partisan investigation. Brilliant!
That makes this investigation far more dangerous for liberals. We already know that there was systemic abuse of the FISA system, that is already documented. The facts are there, but they are ignored as just irrelevant Republican hit pieces not worthy of comment. Horowitz has already proven that he will follow the facts and the facts are devastating for the Obama administration. Trump just made his report impossible to ignore.
Once again, the main stream media has been snookered by the master and they are too stupid to even realize that.
