Did you ever get the feeling that sometimes the leftist media really doesn’t know what they are in for when they go after this administration? 

On Friday, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was asked about “What the president called Obamagate, what is it? What are the elements of that crime?”

“I'm really glad you asked because there hasn't been a lot of journalistic curiosity on this front. And I'm very glad that you asked this question,” McEnany said.

“Look, there were a number of questions raised by the actions of the Obama administration. The Steele dossier funded by the Democratic National Committee, the opposition political party to the president, was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. 

There was the unmasking of the identity of Michael Flynn. And we know that in a January 5th meeting in the Oval Office with President Obama, Sally Yates from the Department of Justice learned about the unmasking - not from the Department of Justice or from the FBI. She learned about it from President Obama and was stunned and can barely process what she was hearing at the time because she was stunned of his knowledge of that. 

We know that there was a lot of wrongdoing in the case of Michael Flynn. The FBI notes, for instance, that said we could ‘get him to lie’ as they pontificated their strategy. We know that the identity of this three decade general was leaked to the press, a criminal leaked to the press of his identity in violation of his Fourth Amendment rights.”

Before she concluded McEnany drove home a final point, “These are very serious questions. They've been ignored by the media for far too long. And I'm very glad - I think that is the second question that I have fielded on Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, because justice does matter. Those questions, they matter.”
