As we told you yesterday, former FBI Director James Comey, who was the head of the bureau during the time of the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, responded to Attorney General Bill Barr saying that he does believe the Trump campaign was spied on. In the interview, Comey said he doesn’t consider electronic surveillance to be “spying.”

Ari Fleischer put Comey’s comments into perspective:
Often, the people or governments who carry out surveillance don’t see it as “spying”. Always, the people on the receiving end of surveillance do see it as “spying”. This isn’t complicated. https://t.co/0nJqxrEDcN

Also, if Comey was the one being surveilled he might have a different take on what constitutes “spying.”
The scary question: is @Comey Actually as dumb as he makes himself to be?
How the hell did he #PeterPrinciple himself to such a high level?

It should be absolutely terrifying to every American that this man was in charge of the FBI, John Brennan was in charge of the CIA, and James Clapper was in charge of the NSA – all at the same time.
