One of the most astounding political (and, frankly, criminal) scandals of all time is currently unfolding before our eyes in Washington.

Unfolding? More like unraveling. With every passing day, the panic is palpable. You see it emanating from former CIA Director John Brennan, who has turned his Twitter account into a one-stop shop of lies, ancient quotes, and nasty insults thrown at everyone who supports the President of the United States.

You see it emanating from the media, which has gone into overdrive in its desperation to convince Americans that there is some meaningful difference between “spying” on Trump’s campaign and whatever it was the FBI was doing in the spring and summer of 2016.

And you see it from the Democrats, who – in a slide not unconnected to the exploding scandal – are watching their dreams of a blue wave in November go up in smoke.

In other words, their side is on the ropes and ready to throw in the towel.

Now’s the time to hit them with everything we’ve got.

By “we,” we don’t just mean conservatives or Trump supporters. We mean those who still believe that the Rule of Law means something, no matter how badly it has been tarnished. It means holding the people responsible for this debacle to account for their misdeeds. And to do that, we need Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recognize this travesty for what it is, withdraw his recusal from all matters related to the 2016 election, and direct the full powers of the Justice Department towards the only thing that now matters: Investigating the evil that the Obama administration wrought upon this country as they watched Donald Trump grab the Republican nomination.

On Wednesday, President Trump held a White House meeting with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and DNI Dan Coats to begin getting to the bottom of if and why Obama’s FBI was spying on his campaign. If the central question to this query is answered “yes” (and it looks more and more like that is the case), then we need an un-recused Attorney General to preside over the ensuing investigation. Never mind what Sessions told the public before and never mind his meetings with the Russian ambassador. All of that is just noise in comparison to what Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and, yes, Barack Obama did in 2016.

As for Mueller’s investigation: It needs to come to an end or be re-directed towards the true criminals of the election.
