'The biggest story' that wasn't a story at all, and those lies about Susan Rice

"I think it's going to be the biggest story," POTUS tweeted a while back about his unsupported allegations that the Obama administration had him wiretapped. "It's such an important story for our country and the world."

Um... no. There remains absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support the president's bizarre claim, and it seems that charges Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice broke the law by making inquiries into the identities of Trump campaign officials with improper connections to Russia are also products of the president's always active imagination.

In fact, House and Senate members from both parties have reviewed the reports cited by House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes in support of the claim that Rice "may" have acted illegally in seeking the "unmasking" of Trump campaign officials under official investigation, and say that they have found no evidence that any such thing happened.

National Review dismisses Rice's actions as an apparent abuse of power which did not actually violate the law. But the congressional report calls those actions "normal and appropriate."

The bottom line: the whole business is a smokescreen designed to distract attention from Russiagate. Far from being about to sent to prison, Susan Rice simply did her job, and the Obama administration never surveilled Donald Trump.
