Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter: “The media went from denying that the Trump campaign was spied on & mocking those who suggested as much, to now admitting the campaign was spied on & spinning it as a good thing. Shameful!”

They’ve done it, they’ve finally done it! The New York Times has picked up the scent of the scandalous spying on Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and is joining the hunt for the truth.

That’s how the president and some supporters reacted after the Times reported the FBI sent a “cloaked investigator” to a London meeting with Trump aide George Papadopoulos in September of 2016. The cheering section saw the story as evidence that, in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, the facts were forcing even the Gray Lady to abandon its notorious anti-Trump agenda.

If only that were true. In reality, we’ll see pigs fly before we see the Times fully committed to getting to the bottom of what Trump calls ­“Spygate.”

The paper is still defending the dirty tricks of Barack Obama’s White House and its own role in spreading the Russia, Russia, Russia hysteria. It’s a relationship neither side can quit.

Instead of proving the Times is coming to its senses, Friday’s article about the 2016 London meeting is better seen as spin designed to protect deep-state sources feeling the heat. Attorney General Bill Barr’s promise to investigate the investigators spooked them and they are using their favorite media handmaiden to fight back.

The left has clearly signaled a pivot on their approach to spying on the Trump campaign. First a Comey statement about how alarmed they were at the FBI at Trump/Russia involvement. Then, this morning I heard leftist shill Mary Anne Marsh on Fox announce that the surveillance of Trump and his associates began back in 2015. She stated it was for good cause because of the number of contacts between Russians and Trump. She always spews the Soros talking points. So now they are going to own their illegal spying by spinning it. “Of course we spied..we had to…the Republic was at stake!” What a bunch of ridiculous bullshit.
