from DC Clothesline:
During a discussion about “Spygate” on Tuesday’s “Outnumbered” program on Fox News, contributor Katie Pavlich, who’s also the editor at TownHall, was nonplussed about the revelation that President Obama may have been in on the scandal from the get-go.
“Barack Obama spied on reporters,” she said at one point. “Why wouldn’t he spy on a political campaign when his legacy was at stake and he needed Hillary Clinton to win?”
That’s a great point. Obama’s administration is known for its harsh treatment of journalists — well, some journalists, such as those who reported sensitive information that was leaked to them. Obama’s regime was renowned for prosecuting a record number of reporters’ sources under the Espionage Act — more than any of his predecessors (the act was passed in 1917, by the way).
