The special counsel implicitly acknowledged that White House internet data he discussed, which conservative outlets have portrayed as proof of spying on the Trump White House, came from the Obama era.

(New York Times)WASHINGTON — John H. Durham, the Trump-era special counsel scrutinizing the investigation into Russia’s 2016 election interference, distanced himself on Thursday from false reports by right-wing news outlets that a motion he recently filed said Hillary Clinton’s campaign had paid to spy on Trump White House servers.

“If third parties [cough, cough Trump] or members of the media [cough, cough FOX News] have overstated, understated or otherwise misinterpreted facts contained in the government’s motion, that does not in any way undermine the valid reasons for the government’s inclusion of this information,” [Durham] wrote.

Most important, the coverage about purported spying on the Trump White House was premised on the idea that the White House network data involved came from when Mr. Trump was president. But Mr. Durham’s filing did not say when it was from.

Lawyers for a Georgia Institute of Technology data scientist who helped analyze the Yota [Russian-made YotaPhones] data said on Monday that the data came from the Obama presidency.

    Ah. Got it.

    Spying on ANY fellow citizen is fine depending on when it happens. Now, that's Pulizer level reporting.

    IMO, the SwampMedia'd be better off ignoring the ongoing Durham probe. The NYT message is defensive...bashing the reporting of Durham's probe, not reporting on Durham's probe itself. Clearly, the NYT would not be doing this if Fox had not inflicted damage on the Swamp.

    Sorta makes the point that the SwampMedia is in the bag for the Dems and especially the Clintons.

    I was going to speculate, rhetorically: I wonder who Hillary's sleeping with to get that coverage?...

    But, that's...absolutely...DISGUSTING!

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha, ahhhhhhhhhhh.

    Your Swampcult SwampMedia can be so silly.

    And that you but in...

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha!
