Using the James Comey F.B.I. as a tool for political spying and hegemony on a rival Presidential campaign seems to be the new Democrat Party method for what used to be accomplished with burglary. The F.B.I. and F.I.S.A. court appear to have been used in the pursuit of political power by the Democrat Party.
After the release of I.G. Horowitz’s report on the unprecedented violations of the Trump campaign driven by Democrats there are several reports that the F.B.I. and others took possibly illegal steps to get inside the Trump campaign. Recently Rep Schiff was found to have perhaps illegally obtained phone records of calls between the President and his personal attorney. One might infer that Democrats have made serious upgrades to the comparatively clumsy Nixon era methods of getting inside information on political opponents.
