And these doorknobs lost their minds over Barr simply USING the word, ‘spying.’
Reading this we can sort of see why … this is LIT.
FBI Man's Testimony Points to Wrongdoing Well Beyond Spying https://t.co/qw4kUkbFay

From Real Clear Investigations:
From the end of 2015 to the end of 2018 Bill Priestap was assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, which meant he oversaw the FBI’s global counterintelligence efforts.
In that role, he managed both of the bureau’s most politically sensitive investigations: the inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information and the probe into whether Donald Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election. His testimony provides rare insight into the attitudes and thoughts of officials who launched the Russia probe and the probe of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose final report is expected to be released very soon.
Turns out the Sharpie brigades weren’t nearly as thorough as they thought. A long-available transcript of text messages between FBI agent Strzok and lawyer Page – the paramours who worked on both the Clinton and Trump investigations – provide the answer. It’s right there on the page detailing texts between Strzok and Page on May 4, 2016. At around 9:31 that Wednesday evening, Strzok writes to say he is worried about getting a memo into shape that is expected that night or the next morning. He feels pressured even though “I don’t know that Bill will read it before he gets back from London next week.” Go to a text from the next Monday morning, May 9, and Strzok is wondering who will be receiving the daily report on the Clinton investigation, what “with Bill out.”
So there we have it. Bill Priestap was in London on or around May 9. Which strongly suggests that all three of the international trips taken by him during his tenure as FBI counterintelligence chief were to London.
Wow-za. We especially like, ‘Sharpie Brigade.’
In which we learn that as far as the FBI is concerned there’s no such thing as “spying,” except by foreigners. We also learn that it’s exactly what the FBI was up to in probing the Trump campaign. https://t.co/Gb5AkYi6s5

Per every intelligence agency in the world, "spying" is what "they" do to "us", but what "we" do to "them" has a much more flowery description.

This is the kind of abuse by government officials that people warn us about when the FISA laws and Patriot Act were passed.

Big government, bigger problems.
Monitor me secretly and it’s spying. Monitor you secretly and it’s surveillance. All a matter of perspective.
