The New York Times’ report about the FBI spying on Trump campaign aides in the run-up to the 2016 election has to be at least secretly making certain Democrats nervous, but Laurence Tribe has come to their defense with his own “Trump pounces” approach:
Watch Trump’s propaganda machine turn this entirely reasonable FBI counterintelligence precaution using Azra Turk into an a smoking gun in the fake Spygate sagahttps://t.co/wFszlPNlvh

Wow, Tribe really took the long way around to avoid a certain word:
It wasn't spying. It was a 'counterintelligence precaution.'https://t.co/SSfsFqafdA

Okay, Mister Pretzel. Good job finding a new way to avoid the word "spying".

But "FBI counterintelligence precaution" is, in fact, "spying." https://t.co/sNgOqG3I92

Whatever precautions must be taken to protect the crumbling narrative.
New rule, everybody: using an assumed identity to surveil someone without their knowledge is not spying. https://t.co/GbaCf6Ze9F

At least until it’s done to a Democrat.
Then: Obama did NOT spy on Trump
Now: and if he did it was justified https://t.co/g8WDkgKlAi
