It wasn't an informant, it was a spy

There's a thing called the English language, US reporters should f**king learn it.  The FBI used a spy to spy on Donald Trump's presidential campaing.

Professional liar James Clapper, as well as the delusional James Comey, have insisted that it was not a "spy," it was an "informant" that was used.  From NPR to CNN, all the press whores lined up to use the same term.

Even though the term is wrong.

That's Isaiah's THE WORLD TODAY JUST NUTS "The Ghosts of Films Past."

Ruby Dee did co-write UP TIGHT.  And that's a story where a guy in a group decides to rat out his peers -- to 'inform' on them.  It's an update of John Ford's THE INFORMER which was also about someone in a group turning on the group and 'informing.'

Get it?

It's not that damn hard.

When the FBI got a man not in Trump's group to begin watching the campaign?  That was spying, not informing.  If someone within the campaign had gone to the authorities?  That would have been informing.

The English language can be your friend if you learn it.

  1. He was called the “Walrus,” but Cambridge University professor Stefan Halper seemed remarkably agile and active in making contacts with Trump campaign officials in the summer and fall of 2016.
  2. The Hill has posted my column on the three critical questions for the IG in investigating the Halper controversy.
