White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany schooled a reporter about Obamagate on Friday. The smug reporter asked the press secretary to name the specific elements of the crime that members of the Obama administration may have committed. After first acknowledging the lack of journalistic curiosity on the subject by the mainstream media, McEnany went through a list of possible crimes.

"The Steele Dossier, funded by the Democratic National Committee, ... was used to obtain FISA warrants to listen in on conversations of people within the Trump campaign. There was the unmasking the identity of Michael Flynn, and we know that in a January 5th meeting in the Oval Office with President Obama, Sally Yates from the Department of Justice ... was stunned by [Presdient Obama's] knowledge of that. We know that there was a lot of wrongdoing in the case of Michael Flynn," McEnany continued. "The FBI notes, for instance, that said should 'we get him to lie' as they pontificated their strategy. We know that the identity of this three-decade general was leaked to the press, a criminal leak to the press of his identity in violation of [his rights.]" 

Despite asking the press secretary "what crime was committed," the reporter griped that McEnany had only mentioned one criminal act, so the press secretary gave a few more. 

"[I]f you want to start going through wrongdoing in the administration, happy to go through Andy McCabe leaking to the Wall Street Journal and then lying about it," McEnany continued. "Happy to talk about James Clapper lying before Congress saying the NSA does not monitor phone calls. That was an inaccuracy to say the least, if not a lie. John Brennan telling Congrees that 'the bogus Steele Dossier played no role in the Russian probe,' when in fact we know it did and was the basis for obtaining FISA warrants."

The media is accusing the Trump administration of inventing crimes when, as the press secretary noted, that's precisely what Trump's critics spent the past three years doing. 

"For three years you all talked about collusion and there was none. And it was a huge injustice, not just to this administration but to the American people who deserve truth, not the alleging of absolutely false allegations against this president."

Also in the press briefing, McEnany proved House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has no idea what's going on in Washington as she's been eating gourmet ice cream in her California mansion.
