The Obama’s Administration’s FISA Abuse Is a Massive Scandal

David Harsanyi, National Review

If your argument is that FISA abuse such as this goes on all the time . . . well, that too is a huge scandal for the Obama administration and the FBI. Hopefully the Republicans will change their position on surveillance powers. Whether they do or do not, however, does not mitigate the harm of this scandal. The media has lost all credibility on the issue. They can't walk it back. But I have no doubt that if a Republican administration had snooped on a Democratic-party candidate utilizing fabricated evidence and a fantastical opposition file — put together by a one-time foreign agent, no less — it would be treated as one of the biggest political scandals of the era. For good reason.
