Top Democrats Demand to Know Who Hired Israeli Firm to Spy on Obama

By

Democrats have some gall.

They stick their heads in the sand regarding troubling evidence that the Obama Administration used the FBI to spy on a presidential candidate, Donald Trump.

And then they turn around and demand information pertaining to allegations that the Trump Admin hired an Israeli intelligence firm to collect data on Obama Admin officials involved in that terrible Iran nuclear deal.

Via Times of Israel:

The top Democrats on the House Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees want an Israeli spy firm to share data on its alleged campaign against Obama administration officials associated with the Iran nuclear deal.

“We are writing to request documents relating to reports that Black Cube conducted a ‘dirty ops’ campaign against former Obama Administration officials Ben Rhodes and Colin Kahl at the behest of associates of President Donald Trump,” said the letter sent Thursday by Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, and Representative Eliot Engel of New York, his counterpart on Foreign Affairs.

Let’s put aside for a second the rank hypocrisy of Democrats getting huffy over this while ignoring Obama’s (FAILED!) misuse of the FBI to keep Trump out of office.

We all by now are aware of the Obama White House admitting that they duped the American people regarding the Iran deal.

Remember Ben Rhodes boasting to the New York Times that he had sent out a cadre of carefully-selected “experts” to make sure the media printed exactly what Obama wanted them to say about the Iran deal?

From the NYT:

“As…representatives of the State Department, including Wendy Sherman and Secretary of State John Kerry, engaged in formal negotiations with the Iranians, to ratify details of a framework that had already been agreed upon, Rhodes’s war room did its work on Capitol Hill and with reporters. In the spring of last year, legions of arms-control experts began popping up at think tanks and on social media, and then became key sources for hundreds of often-clueless reporters. ‘We created an echo chamber,’ he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. ‘They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.'”

So, they purposefully deceive the American people via exploitation of the mainstream media, then they boast about it, and then they whine about Trump needing to call in outside help to find out precisely what Rhodes and the rest of Obama’s minions knew, and when?

Have the Democrats truly lost all shame?
