The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word spying as “to collect information about something to use in deciding how to act.” Which is what it appears the FBI did to the Trump campaign under former Director James Comey. And yet, it appears Mr. Comey hasn’t read the definition.

On today’s show, we talked about former FBI Director Comey’s baffling comments that he didn’t understand the testimony of Attorney General Bill Barr, and that surveillance on innocent Americans is somehow “not spying.”

On Wednesday, we told you about AG Barr’s revelation before Congress that he believes “spying did occur” by the Obama FBI during the 2016 Presidential campaign.

Comey tried to cast doubt on the Attorney General’s testimony while speaking at a cybersecurity conference on Thursday:

"With respect to Barr's comments, I really don't know what he's talking about when he talks about spying on the campaign," Comey said. "It's very concerning because the FBI, the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance. I have never thought of that as spying.”

The reality is electronic surveillance on a Presidential candidate, or any other American citizen, is in fact spying.

But now leaders on the Left are circling the wagons, in what seems like a possibly pre-emptive strike by trying to discredit and downplay the testimony of AG Barr. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi dismissively accused Barr of being “off the rails.”

“How very dismaying and disappointing that the chief law enforcement officer of our country is going off the rails yesterday and today,” Pelosi said as she and other leaders arrived at a Democratic issues retreat Wednesday. “He is attorney general of the United States of America, not the attorney general of Donald Trump.”

Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the floor yesterday and accused the Attorney General of being the President’s spokesperson:

Mr. Barr seems to be nothing more than a spokesperson for the president’s campaign. He seems more like the president’s press secretary than the attorney general. He’s even using the president’s own tactics: admit nothing, deny everything, make counter-accusations.”

What I think is happening here is the legal implications of this issue are so high, that the Left and especially former FBI officials like James Comey are scrambling. The Left has no other choice but to deny and discredit while they desperately try to get on top of this.
