I don’t know if you are being deliberately dishonest about this or just continuing to muddle the Times article with the Heatstreet blogger’s post. Contrary to your claim, the Times article made no reference at all to FISA. In addition, the quotes I provided suggesting that it was Russian agents targeted for any wiretapping is not some sort of recent “softening” of the article (as you again falsely suggest), but appeared (exactly as I quoted them) in the original Times article on January 20th.

The original Times article, in its headline, did suggest that wiretapped information was part of the investigation (and it likely was) but contrary to repeated your misrepresentations it did not even remotely suggest that the wiretaps were of Trump’s associates. The article itself suggested the wiretaps were of the Russians and it did that right from its first publication.

As also pointed out, Trump repeatedly claimed that it was his phone that was tapped. You keep dodging that as well.
