We’ve posted a lot of highlights from Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Hearing at which Inspector General Michael Horowitz was a witness, and the whole idea that the intelligence community was “exonerated” has crumbled all day long.
One of the highlights of the day was Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley asking which was worse: a foreign government meddling in our elections, or our own government meddling in our elections.
“Our government, the most powerful law enforcement agency in the nation, the FBI, effectively meddled in an ongoing presidential campaign… When our own government does it, how can the American people have confidence and what do we do?” –@HawleyMO pic.twitter.com/hfFGiSLr1d

"Which is worse, is it worse to have a foreign government trying to meddle in our elections or is it worse to have our own government meddling in the election?
"Because that's exactly what this report shows." pic.twitter.com/sSrvDjAXpk

Hawley: "This is the untold story of 2016…the DNC should take a victory lap for getting the FBI to launch and pursue surveillance of a rival presidential campaign and then into the newly elected president's term."

Best and one of the most important questions of the day. "Which is worse….". Thank you @HawleyMO

It all comes down to just that and it’s much worse from within. We are falling apart

I was told the previous administration was 'scandal free'…

Both are bad. Internal is worse.
We can expect espionage from other countries but internal is not acceptable.

Home grown is much worse. Most Americans are not prepared to accept attacks from within as a threat, so the corruption goes far too long without being addressed.

They're still doing it. That's how they won the midterms.
