As President Trump lurched ever closer to taking office back in 2016, there was something swampy going on in Washington DC.
New evidence seems to suggest that the Obama administration exploited their power in order to spy on the Trump campaign. Through this spying, they were able to gather enough information to unleash a wild conspiracy theory on the world, claiming that Trump himself was some sort of double agent, working for The Kremlin, of all places.
It sounded like the plot of a James Bond movie, not an important political contest.
The Trump administration has long vowed to get to the bottom of this debacle, and a new set of subpoenas unleashed on Wednesday could move us closer to an understanding.

The Senate Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday voted to authorize subpoenas for former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, and other Obama administration officials as part of its broad review into the origins of the Russia investigation.
The committee on Wednesday held a business meeting to authorize committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., to issue notices for taking depositions, subpoenas, for records, and subpoenas for testimony to individuals relating to the panel’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, the Justice Department inspector general’s review of that investigation, and the “unmasking” of U.S. persons affiliated with the 2016 Trump campaign, transition team and the Trump administration.
The committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoenas.
The move could bring us new insight into just what sort of treachery was ongoing behind the scenes in 2016, and just in time for Donald Trump to utilize this information to make a case for reelection – particularly on account of his opponent Joe Biden’s close connection to that former, fraudulent espionage.
