If you followed me on the old Medium site, you know that I’ve been insisting this for about two years:
NEW: AG Barr tells Congress "I think spying did occur, yes. I think spying did occur" on the Trump campaign. He adds "The question was whether it was adequately predicated. And I'm not suggesting it wasn't predicated. I need to explore that" pic.twitter.com/oh1ATTpM4a

Spygate is officially confirmed. This is a major turning point in the fight against the Deep State. This is the moment the tables began turning.
You can tell by the look on Democrat Senator Jane Shaheen’s face that AG Barr’s statement is a big deal. She knows the jig is up.
Of course, in order to prevent Senate Democrats’ heads from exploding on the spot, Barr issued the caveat that “we need to see” whether Obama’s spying on Trump was “adequately predicated,” but we already know the answer to that question: no, it was not. The spying was based on the discredited and false Steele Dossier, which the guilty parties knew was bogus the whole time.
The Steele Dossier was merely their fig leaf of legitimacy to validate their maliciously-driven desire to spy on the Trump campaign. They needed some seemingly legitimate reason to initiate the spying, so they paid Fusion GPS to slap together some bogus document that seemingly justified the spying they already wanted to do.
In other words, the desire to spy on Trump came first, the Steele Dossier came second. The latter was slapped together to provide a veneer of legitimacy for the former.
Dan Bongino has a nice summary of why, contrary to Uniparty media lying, it was indeed the Steele Dossier that served as the pretext for the spying.
The “mainstream media” will either ignore or downplay this major moment, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is unimportant.
If anything, that should underscore just how important Barr’s admission is.
CNN is already on the job:
Now they want evidence?
These vile propagandists push an evidence-free Russian Collusion Conspiracy Theory for two straight years and now they have the audacity to demand evidence?
Literally fuck yourselves with the largest vaguely phallic object within arm’s reach.
The Obama Administration, in collaboration with the Hillary campaign, used the false Steele Dossier as a pretext to spy on the Trump campaign.
You want “election meddling”? Here it is.
This is a scandal many times worse than Watergate, about which even the most ardent Nixon haters will admit, “It wasn’t the crime, it was the cover-up.”
Well, Spygate is about the crime.
It’s about the cover-up, too, and in that department the main guilty party is the “mainstream media”. Take
Washington Bezos Post’s Aaron Blake, for instance:
But it’s mostly about the crime. And this crime goes all the way to the top.
Let the games begin.
