Obama officials' spying on Trump a departure from norms

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

Has an outgoing administration ever worked to delegitimize and dislodge its successor incoming administration like this?

The time is up for professional gatekeepers like Comey and Rosenstein to control what the public knows. They have done nothing but add to distrust of the FBI and that will not change if their ilk makes the final decisions. By insisting that the documents go online, Trump would be letting taxpayers see for themselves what the government was up to, and what it was hiding. And to connect the dots between the various agencies involved.
