Dim Bulbs

The Dems are screaming that Congressman David Nunes could face an ethics investigation for spilling classified intel beans.
... it appears that the chairman may have opened himself up to an ethics investigation by apparently disclosing the existence of a foreign surveillance warrant during a press conference last Tuesday.
Of course it's all a diversion from the real scandal, that Obama's deep state was peeking up Donald Trump's skirts.

According to the Conservative Treehouse, a former Obama administration official, Evelyn Farkas who was Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense, appeared on MSNBC and admitted to Mika Brzezinski that she possessed first hand knowledge that the Obama administration spied on  Donald Trump’s transition team to gather 'intelligence' for political use.

Once sweet Evelyn opened that can of classified beans, she couldn't stop herself from boasting:
I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.

Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.
This is what happens when you put a forty watt bulb into a light fixture that clearly requires 100 watts.

Apparently Ms. Farkas was one of the sources for this New York Times article that revealed more classified intel bean spilling:
“More than a half-dozen current and former officials described various aspects of the effort to preserve and distribute the intelligence, and some said they were speaking to draw attention to the material and ensure proper investigation by Congress. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing classified information, nearly all of which remains secret.” 
Sure, I seem to make light of intel beans, but this is deadly serious stuff. People go to prison for decades for these kind of offenses. Apparently these Obama administration light weights didn't have the sense to realize the position they were placing themselves in and relied on political protection from any legal/criminal consequences. We'll see about that.

They were so used to being above the law for the last 8 years that they couldn't help themselves. They also assumed that Trump would be just as abusive of the intel as they had been.
