So what this story really says is that the Obama Administration had a four agency task force (including the FBI, NSA and the CIA, along with Treasury) investigate three members of the political opposition.
But the Department of Justice didn't think the Clinton Foundation was worth investigating, even though the FBI's New York Field Office came to them and RECOMMENDED an investigation, and also asked for a grand jury?
Then look at how the White House treated James Rosen (a Fox News reporter).
They not only tracked him like a terrorist, Eric Holder personally sign-off on a warrant that not only allowed them to record all of his phone, texts and e-mails, along with all other electronic communications, but they labeled him a co-conspirator, AND labeled him a "flight risk", so that they didn't have to inform him of the surveillance.
The last two were not only unprecedented acts to silence a reporter, but they were demonstrable lies.
Finally, the Obama White House wire-tapped 20 AP staff/reporters, for two months (what they actually did was go straight to Verizon, and get two months worth of phone records for each of the 20). The effect of this was, as reported by WaPo's Erik Wemple on 6/19/2013: On June 19, 2013, while giving a speech at the National Press Club, President and CEO of the Associated Press Gary Pruitt said: “Some longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about talking with us — even on stories unrelated to national security.
In some cases, government employees we once checked in with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone. Others are reluctant to meet in person... And I can tell you, that this chilling effect on news gathering is not just limited to AP. Journalists from other news organizations have personally told me, that it has intimidated both official and nonofficial sources from speaking to them as well."
Which side are the Fascists? Talk is cheap, but the Obama Administration actions speak loudly.
