Twitter is aflutter with anger and exasperation over the bombshell confirmation from special counsel John Durham that former President Donald Trump was indeed spied on both before and even after taking office.
A court filing submitted by Durham on Friday describes how a former Perkins Coie lawyer working for failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had colluded with a tech executive, former Neustar senior vice president Rodney Joffe, to literally spy on Trump’s White House Internet traffic.
The purpose of the spying was to find data that could be used “to establish ‘an inference’ and ‘narrative’ tying then-candidate Trump to Russia,” according to the filing. In other words, the purpose was to build out the Russian collusion delusion hoax.
News of the filing has sent shockwaves throughout the Internet and provoked widespread anger, particularly from former President Trump and his family.
As previously reported, the former president has essentially accused Clinton of treason:
‘This is TREASON!’ Trump responds to bombshell Durham report that Clinton camp paid to ‘infiltrate’ WH servers https://t.co/jLrGh7wvIx

But by no means are the president and his family alone. Outrage has also erupted from congressional Republicans, GOP operatives, conservative journalists/commentators and Fox News hosts.
A common theme among the responses are the words “they spied on Donald Trump.”
They didn’t just spy on Donald Trump’s campaign.
They spied on Donald Trump as sitting President of the United States.
It was all even worse than we thought. https://t.co/z991l7Mc9r

🚨 Shocking new details coming from Durham: They spied on Trump WHILE he was President.
If they can do this to a president, imagine what they can do to you. Scary.
Time for serious consequences. https://t.co/j8K96E6maw

It’s what we said from the beginning based on the evidence- the Democrats, FBI,DNI Clapper, Brennan, Hillary Clinton, her cohorts, with the direct help of Perkins Coie and foreign spy Christopher Steele & Fusion GPS, spied on President Trump and others- They abused their power https://t.co/won6j0afpf

They spied on Trump. He was right about everything.

Yes, we know they spied on Trump before and during his Presidency. Now do something about it! #Durham

Another common theme is a call for consequences, including prison time, for all involved parties, particularly Clinton:
@HillaryClinton spied on trump a sitting president…y’all don’t think she did all the other shit? She’s a criminal she belongs in GITMO @RandPaul @Jim_Jordan @RepThomasMassie @tedcruz why is she above the law? Because she can make anyone “commit Suicide?”

They spied on Trump during the campaign, and they spied on him as President.
They all need to go to prison. https://t.co/3GVfCC8b0I
— Monica Crowley (@MonicaCrowley) February 12, 2022
They spied on Trump as a Presidential candidate.
They spied on Trump as a sitting United States President.
They deserve prison time. https://t.co/cx2i0GdFZa

This is a huge deal — they didn’t just spy on Trump during the 2016-17 transition, they spied on him *in the White House.* Joffe and others will be going to prison for a long time for this. https://t.co/epwPuYRYwG

But who all is involved, besides Clinton and those who’d directly colluded to feed the Russian collusion delusion hoax to federal authorities?
Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, has suggested that the feds themselves — as in members of the government — all “knew”:
Obama knew. Clinton knew. Biden knew. Comey knew. Brennan knew. McCabe knew. Strzok knew.Clapper knew.Schiff knew.FBI knew.DOJ knew. CIA knew.State knew. They all knew Trump was innocent but they smeared and spied on him. Worst scandal in nation’s history. Trump is a crime victim https://t.co/X2vCGLVAeH

Obama knew trump was being spied on

Another theme is calling for Republicans to stop being “spineless” and start taking action, starting with calling out Democrats and eventually launching investigations once they retake Congress:
KNOW THIS: Every SINGLE Republican holding office right now must call for immediate and unparalleled punishment for those who spied on a sitting President.
Members of the GOP who do NOT do this will be considered complicit/allied with these CRIMINALS.
The base is WATCHING. https://t.co/gc1qUz5XGg

Democrats spied on Candidate Trump
Democrats spied on President Trump.
“Russia Collusion” was the real BIG LIE.
The 118th Congress MUST create a committee to investigate!

Meanwhile, the establishment press, which purports to be objective yet always seems to downplay news that’s bad for the Democrat Party and play up news that’s good for it, has remained quiet amid the bombshell from Durham:
It’s official: Hillary Clinton spied on Trump.
Standby for ZERO REPORTING from the BS news media.🤦🏾♀️
— Lavern Spicer (@lavern_spicer) February 13, 2022
If anything, the media appear committed to doubling down on the collusion hoax. The same day that Durham submitted his filing, in fact, BuzzFeed News published a new “bombshell” claiming that Mueller could have charged Donald Trump Jr. and Roger Stone “with computer crimes,” but chose not to.
The “bombshell” received widespread mockery from the right.
