In an effort to figure out who was leaking info within the Trump admin, the LOSER went beyond anything that has ever happened in US history and Subpoenaed the apple phone records of at least 2 Democrats on the house intelligence committee and their family members including a minor child.

The gag orders and records seizures show how aggressively the Trump administration pursued the inquiries while Mr. Trump declared war on the news media and perceived enemies whom he routinely accused of disclosing damaging information about him

“The zeal in the Trump administration’s efforts to hunt leakers led to the extraordinary step of subpoenaing communications metadata from members of Congress — a nearly unheard-of move outside of corruption investigations. While Justice Department leak investigations are routine, current and former congressional officials familiar with the inquiry said they could not recall an instance in which the records of lawmakers had been seized as part of one.

Moreover, just as it did in investigating news organizations, the Justice Department secured a gag order on Apple that expired this year, according to a person familiar with the inquiry, so lawmakers did not know they were being investigated until Apple informed them last month.”

When the Obama administration came down even harder on leakers I don't remember you voicing concerns. Hmmmm.

You’re really posting this? After what the FBI did? Like the entire federal gov’t spying on Trump since before 2016 election and conducting a four year campaign to oust him from the inside out?

the FBI investigates criminal activity. That is why. The Trumps are criminals.

And it turns out that Trump was actually the Deep State.

You mean like Soetoro spying on every conservative organization illegally!
Defending the crooked, loser, mentally ill former president to the end of time, even when he gets caught over and over of questionable behavior. You got to wonder about these Trumpsters.

Sounds like Trump was just investigating criminals. Try to find one reasonable person who thinks Adam Schiff isn't a criminal.

Then bring them charges. I’ve always said that about you guys. Hilary is a criminal? Bring the charges. If she’s guilty of a crime…fine.

But…nothing. Had every opportunity to do so.

The case against Trump and his syndicate continues to mount.
As it does against the Clinton's and everyone they do business with. The Clintons used to do business with Trump. Trump's biggest crime.

Disagree on “biggest crime”.

Here’s a fundamental difference between me and many on here. If there is a crime, charge them with it. Clinton’s, Hunter…whatever. My political support isn’t above the law.

Can’t say that for your team.

It says more about the corrupt leadership of the FBI than it does my team.

Well foreign spies were never contacting other Presidential candidates, so Trump was the first.
Yeah, they were just sleeping with spies. Eric Fartwell anyone??
And also, They were “leaking” classified information, which is a felony still (even though Hillary didn’t care about those laws).

Trump appointed those leaders. AG Sessions & Barr along with FBI’s Wray. Then asked them to investigate his political enemies. Watergate 2.0
It's obvious those enemies needed investigating. Obama investigated his enemies on a bogus paid for dossier from the DNC. Also had the CIA spy on his enemies. Presidents can't do that any more?

Your ignorance is showing. Obama/US govt spies on foreign intelligence. Trump’s people kept calling Russian intelligence so their communications were intercepted. Probably shouldn’t have called Russian spies.

Spying on conservative journalists was Obama spying on foreign intelligence?

While at the same time having them help him obstruct investigations into his criminal behavior and also to help cover his ties with his Russian compatriots.
Yep.
Trump on May 17, 2017, the day the Mueller investigation was announced:

"Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f*cked."

He knew. Hence the obstruction via Barr, et al.

No charges? No investigation? Trump really hated Obama. He had the motivation and the tool (complicit DOJ) to do something.

But…nothing?
Trump never had that much power. It was him against the entire DC establishment from day 1. Most of what he wanted to accomplish was quashed by career politicians on both sides.

This is so true. Both sides didn't want him in there. He wasn't president to make money. He already had enough money. Which meant the swamp wasn't making money.
