 Democrats And The Media Keep Lying About Obama’s Agencies Spying On Trump’s Campaign
Proving whether election irregularities occurred will require a willingness to judge the evidence fairly, not a habit of declaring demonstrable facts to have been 'debunked.'

Four years after the FBI sent “Confidential Human Sources” secretly to gather information on Donald Trump’s team, the president’s opponents in politics and the media continue to deny that the bureau spied on his 2016 campaign. They are now using that denial to dismiss questions of voting irregularities in the 2020 election by arguing that Trump and his allies traffic in outrageous falsehoods for partisan purposes.

During the vice-presidential debate, Mike Pence said, “When Joe Biden was vice president of the United States, the FBI actually spied on President Trump and my campaign.” The response from NBC “fact checkers” was to declare that “Pence repeated a false claim that Trump made during the first presidential debate – accusing the Obama administration of spying on their 2016 campaign.”

Hmph!  Even after the "Democrats" held hearings in Congress
that were broadcast live on national television (including NBC)
in which the former FBI Director James Comey testified (lied)
about why he decided to petition the FISA court four times
(lying to them all four times!)
to get warrants to spy on the Trump campaign,
NBC still says the government never spied on the Trump campaign!

Apparently, NBC's "fact checkers" never looked at NBC's own video archive!

(That was facetious. The "fact checkers" NEVER check any actual facts!
"Fact check" is just a false label the put on any of their lies that they REALLY want you to believe!)
