Liberal media writers are still claiming that the Obama/Biden administration did not spy on the Trump 2016 Presidential campaign; the Trump Administration says the spying was facilitated by the FBI, who used “Confidential Human Sources” to infiltrate the campaign.
Liberals have denounced this claim as untrue and are now using this “straw-man” façade to dismiss Trump’s claims of voter fraud; the claim is that Trump engages in speculative and wild claims that have been debunked, and he is now doing the same with voter fraud allegations.
Former FBI Director Christopher Wray did not admit the FBI “spied,” but he did acknowledge the bureau “did not comply with existing policies, neglected to exercise appropriate diligence, or otherwise failed to meet the standard of conduct that the FBI expects of its employees – and that our country expects of the FBI.”
| “Last week, USA Today reporters Kevin Johnson and Kristine Phillips described as “debunked allegations” claims that Trump’s team had been spied on while reporting that Attorney General William Barr, a prominent leveler of the charge last year, was now opening the Justice Department to “claims of partisan interference” with a new directive to investigate credible claims of voting irregularities,” according to the federalist. |
Obama/Biden Spying allegations on the 2016 Trump Campaign are likely true and certainly have not been debunked.
We have previously examined the use of spies and informants in criminal and political settings. We noted a report in the New York Times that revealed that the bureau, during President Obama’s administration, took the momentous step of recruiting a national security academic, Stefan Halper, to spy on Trump associates by striking up what seemed to be innocent professional contacts.” We drew no meaningful distinction between “spies” and “confidential informants” frequently relied upon in the criminal setting. Indeed, we noted, “Of course, the government might use informants in a variety of other cases, including campaign operations.”
Mr. Wray, while under oath, admitted that the FBI was negligent, but he stopped short of throwing his agents under the bus. We do not believe Wray; it seems abundantly clear that spying occurred.
We do not doubt that the Obama/Biden team was knowledgeable and active in the spying of Trump’s campaign. Wray should have provided additional details, but we can fill in the blanks; Trump has been right all along about the spying incident.
USA Today reporters Kevin Johnson and Kristine Phillips are wrong when they say the spying matter was debunked. And then it naturally follows that their laughable straw-man conjecture was garbage; voter fraud happened in the 2020 election.
