President Donald Trump on Thursday called into Sean Hannity's show to discuss the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. Attorney General William Barr made it very clear that no collusion and no obstruction took place between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. Now that more information is being released, we've learned mainstream media outlets, like BuzzFeed and the Washington Post, were sent unsubstantiated information about alleged leaks. The outlets wrote news stories on the information, although it wasn't verified. And guess what happened? The FBI used those exact news articles to investigate and spy on the Trump campaign. 

Translation: The entire "investigation" saga was, as Trump has said, a witch hunt.

In President Trump's eyes, he believes this Russia probe is "far bigger than Watergate." In fact, he believes "it's possibly the biggest scandal in political history."

And, in a lot of ways, Trump is right. America saw an unprecedented attack on our elections and our way of life. Those attacks weren't just from Russia and other foreign agencies. Those attacks came from government officials who abused their power and an overzealous liberal media who wanted to make sure Secretary Hillary Clinton won the election...and look how well that worked out for them.

Even though we have the evidence that no collusion or obstruction took place, the Democrats are still trying to run with this idea that Trump and his team did something wrong. And who's leading the charge? The same news outlets – CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, New York Times – whose reporting lead America down this rabbit hole. And, to make matters even worse, a few of the news organizations won Pulitzer Prizes...for stories that weren't even true!

Look, there's no doubt about it, Watergate was a horrible scandal that shook America to its core. It was nasty and showed the truly ugly side of politics (as if there's really any glamor?) but the Russia probe has proven that a handful of people's disdain for one man can truly derail America as we know it. Government agencies shouldn't interject themselves into our elections. Neither should foreign governments. We need to call this what it is: a political hit job that didn't go according to plan...and it's a good thing their plan went haywire.
