We knew this was coming this morning when Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz asked Attorney General Bill Barr if he wanted to “rephrase” what he said about the Obama administration spying on the Trump campaign in 2016. “I think the word ‘spying’ could cause people in the cable news ecosystem to freak out,” Schatz said, as if we cared.

Now Sen. Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Senate Democrats are calling for Barr to walk back what he said about his belief that the Trump campaign was spied on.

Schumer and crew might want to think this over; you’d think after the Mueller investigation blew up in their faces they’d lay off a bit, but instead, they’re going to try to pressure Barr to take back that “spying” word.

Yes, let’s see the evidence. It’s long past time.
