President Trump continues to tweet about what he’s calling “Spygate”:
“Everyone knows there was a Spy, and in fact the people who were involved in the Spying are admitting that there was a Spy…Widespread Spying involving multiple people.” Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist Senior Editor But the corrupt Mainstream Media hates this monster story!

CNN’s Chris Cillizza immediately got to work helping sort the apples from the bananas. Don’t be drinking anything when you read who he quoted to try and prove Trump’s claims wrong:
Q: "So I ask you, was the FBI spying on Trump's campaign?"

Well there’s a credible source! *Eye roll*
We can definitely trust the guy who lied to Congress about whether by the NSA was spying on millions of Americans. https://t.co/WpxHPZ7CWo

If @CNN had been the judge for a Bernie Madoff trial:
Defense attorney: "Mr. Madoff, did you defraud your clients of billions?"
Madoff: "No, I did not"
Judge: "Well, that settles that. Case dismissed. Mr. Madoff, you are free to go." https://t.co/9ie1X5NDJK

Clapper is not known to be truthful. So there's that. https://t.co/lf1NWBDruA
