But it's a fact he was spied on and Obama ordered it. Soooooo....? If that's a crime and was uncalled for why is nothing happening?
This assault on democracy has not been proven, but the evidence emerging in dribs and drabs strongly suggests the possibility. If it is proven, and if the Obama White House was directly involved, as some FBI texts plainly say, the scandal would be one of the biggest in American history.
How big? Big enough that major news organizations, which always favor transparency (“Democracy Dies in Darkness”), are now deeply troubled by the release of any secret documents. They know the stakes are too high and transparency too dangerous for their side, politically.
During a broader discussion Sunday about the president's declassification order related to the Russia investigation, "Meet the Press" host asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders what Trump expects will come out of it.
"Does he expect criminal charges?
Does he expect — he's accused James Comey of treason.
Does he expect Jim Comey to be arrested?" Todd asked.
Sanders said the decision will be left to Attorney General William Barr.
"Again, we're going to let the attorney general make that determination as he gets to the conclusion of this investigation," Sanders replied.
"We certainly expect the people that were responsible and that were part of this unprecedented obstruction and corruption at the FBI, those people should certainly be held responsible and be held accountable, and the president expects that to take place," she added.

Yes, you are correct, off to the corner to give silly some company.
My point is I want everyone to have to atone for their actions, if proven guilty, they should have to pay for their misdeeds (but treason is a stretch). After all, so far it looks like a waste of resources only to have our government focused on something that isn't helping our country.
That said, after we make those who are accountable pay, we need to reform the intelligence agencies as this is not the first time of this happening. It's been going on for decades, and it needs to stop. We need to start fighting for our rights back, because at this point, it's all so loopholed and convoluted, the government can silence anyone they wish.
