In the original WSJ article by James Freeman, he said, “The Mueller report confirms that the Obama administration, without evidence, turned the surveillance powers of the federal government against the presidential campaign of the party out of power.”
In the Breitbart article by Dr. Susan Berry, she said, “While Democrats and other members of the “Resistance” flail about in the wake of news the Robert Mueller investigation did not find evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election, Freeman observed Monday the report confirms it is former President Barack Obama who “owes the country an explanation” for his administration’s “historic abuse of government surveillance powers.”
Signaling that accountability is on his mind, Trump retweeted the Breitbart article Monday night, followed up by three tweets about the Stanley Cup and upcoming events at the White House.
