Washington Post reporter Devlin Barrett weighs in on what the federal government was looking for in those records, how this may affect journalists’ ability to do their job and how the Biden administration is handling leaks.

    If a journalist is involved in criminal and/or ethical acts, they don’t get to say I’m a journalist so you can’t file a search warrant for the criminal evidence.

    He knew they had all the Russians records when he reportedly said "oh nooo…my presidency is fu…ckd"

    He then started to call it back in 2017 that the 2020 election would be rigged. He is a con man, a mafia type child and a criminal. Lock him up

    How about a criminal investigation into the entire trump administration ? The most logical approach. Nobody is above the law ,journalists , or POLITIONS !!!!

    CBS is reporting lies again. LOL. I'd say it was Jeff Session, or Rosenstein, trying to find out who was leaking Trump's phone calls to foreign leaders, such as Australia's prime minster. CBS only wants to imply it was the Russian BS, which went nowhere. I'm amazed at how many uninformed liberal memes think that Barr was in office during that time. They aren't any smarter than CBS.

    As if there were any doubt about the over-reach of our government and its invasion of our privacy and its attempt to control media.

    Still deflecting from hillary clintons emails,hunter bidens b.s. and many other crimes of the democratic party.obama wasn't even an American.if biden croaks he will have lived his whole life without paying for any of his crimes against humanity but the earth belongs to the devil and his children.so the god that gives you prosperity is nothing but a front to hide your wickedness.cowards!

    Makes sense to me. I don't understand why media outlets who print classified information don't get the Julian Assange treatment. And people in our government who share classified information without going through the whistleblower program should get prison time.

    So, we should undertand this to mean the U.S. government has a right to spy on its citizens, refuse to prosecute criminal presidents and other rogue politicians, give pardons to whomever it desires, and call itself the leader of democracy and justice of the free world. What utter hypocrisy.

    My pep peeve: when someone took an actions like abortion, capital punishment, government taking land or property from citizens, it's not a debate. That happened!!! The baby or life has died; the criminal payed with his life; family is homeless/ and broken. Debate should happen then decision and actions follow, not the actions then the debate.
