It was only a matter of time before some member of the so-called mainstream media “went there,” asking this utterly preposterous rhetorical question in one form or another.
The trigger, of course, is the release of the dreaded Nunes FISA memo, which — kindly note — implicates precisely five (count ’em, five) current or former FBI or Justice Department higher-ups: Former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
What do these five people have in common? All filed one or more FISA applications targeting Carter Page.
In other words, Republicans aren’t going after the entire FBI or Justice Department — just specific individuals believed to have obtained permission under false pretenses to spy on the Trump campaign.
But you’d never know that, judging from the accusations Democrats have leveled against the GOP and the White House, which include this tweet by “Young Turk” Cenk Uygur:
Why do Republicans and @realDonaldTrump hate cops? The FBI are the top cops in the country. GOP relentlessly attacking them because they don’t believe in rule of law & don’t support cops!

Naturally, Uygur couldn’t be more wrong. But hey, it’s the liberal media…
Twitter users didn’t appreciate Uygur’s false claim:
Says the Marxist clown who for 8 years straight joined Obama to attack every local law enforcement department in the country.

And on it goes from there.
Keep in mind, if you will, that it was Uygur’s side of the political aisle that prompted chants like this during the previous administration:
You get the idea…
