House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was a little too blunt in his honesty about the campaign to take out President Donald Trump, first initiated by the FBI under former bureau director James Comey.
McCarthy tweeted a clip of an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“The FBI broke into President Trump’s campaign, spied on him, then tried to cover it up. This is a modern-day Watergate,” the tweet read, paraphrasing his remarks in the clip.

“It’s a modern-day coup, the closest this country’s ever came to,” McCarthy adds in the clip. “But the only way you can compare this to is Watergate. They broke into his campaign by bringing people into it. They had been trying to cover it up for the whole time. Now the question rises, just like Watergate, who knew? When did they know it? And how high did this go up?”
Suffice it to say, with an assertion that could include former President Barack Obama, the left lost it’s collective mind, with the media leading the way to insist McCarthy is lying.
But then, when you consider that an FBI attorney doctored an email to essentially manufacture evidence to ensure a FISA warrant would be obtained to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, you get a sense of why McCarthy was saying the FBI “broke into” the campaign.
As the old saying goes, “You know you are over the target when the flak is heaviest.”
And, boy, oh, boy, the flak was coming hard and heavy from the big guns, to include the prerequisite charge that McCarthy is a “Russian asset.”
Here’s but a small sampling of the umbrage on the left from Twitter:

You see, it’s like merit badges in the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, except that instead of earning them by doing good deeds, with IMPOTUS @realDonaldTrump you earn them by telling lies to the public for his benefit, the bigger the better. #IMPOTUS https://t.co/5knXkgxv27

These claims are false. The Inspector General did not *find* evidence of this during his investigation.

Kremlin Kevin McCarthy is #PutinsLeader of #PutinsGOP, because they definitely don’t represent the United States of America. The House GOP is the third biggest threat to our national security, right below Trump and his Admin, and every Republican in the Senate. #KremlinKevin

Former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is now dating the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted in support of McCarthy.
“The silence & apathy from the fake news tells everything you need to know about the media’s ridiculously biased campaign against @realDonaldTrump,” she tweeted. “Thankfully we have strong leaders like @GOPLeader fighting back! The truth matters, and if the media won’t share it, we will!

Interestingly Adam Baldwin tweeted a copy of page 177 from the Justice Department inspector general’s report that referenced President Obama making a request to have information shared.
I clearly remember when Obama did this. It seemed like a bad idea to me, at the time. Now we know what he was trying to accomplish: to set the machine against his successor. I wonder when he felt it would be Trump over all others? Let us recall that O had spies in multiple cmpgns

The text of the relevant paragraph is seen here:
“The Intel Section Chief told us that he asked then Deputy Director Andrew
McCabe whether McCabe wanted to limit the FBI’s submission to information concerning Russian election interference or to also include allegations against candidate Trump. The Intel Section Chief said that McCabe understood President Obama’s request for the ICA to require the participating agencies to share all information relevant to Russia and the 2016 elections, and the Steele election reporting qualified at a minimum due to concerns over possible Russian attempts to blackmail Trump.”
