Attorney General Bill Barr telling a Senate subcommittee that he planned to look into claims that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election has caused a disturbance on the Left:
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

Ari Fleischer senses that the media might return to the “hibernation” stage they were in during the Obama years when it comes to this particular plot twist:
Today is the day the shoe moved to the other foot. This is a big deal. For two years, the media breathlessly covered, and acquiesced to, allegations against Trump, no matter how absurd. Now the allegations are against the Obama Admin. Why do I think the coverage wil be different? https://t.co/rL037rzDUK

The MSM certainly won’t be as breathless about these allegations.
