It wasn't that long ago the former reality star and president was telling Americans that the Obama administration was spying on him.
Trump shed crocodile tears at rallies claiming the Democrats were after him and had bugged Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.
What really happened is another story.
Trump set the Department of Justice on a witch hunt to dig up dirt on members of Congress and their staff. Even a minor from one family.
In pursuit of leaks of classified information about contacts between Trump associates and Russia, the DOJ subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee.
The story gets more sinister. The prosecutors also secured a gag order against Apple, preventing it from informing customers their metadata had been seized. The order was recently lifted, and that's how this story got out.
This new drama has exposed another layer of corruption under the Trump regime. Some are saying this is the worst thing Trump did while POTUS.
Frankly, I disagree. His coup attempt is pretty high up there to me. But here's the thing; there's going to be more revelations uncovered in the weeks, months and years to come.
Trump's relationship with AG Bill Barr as his personal attack dog is already well established.
What happened - and never should have - is Trump used his presidential powers to target the legislative branch, and his personal enemies. This flagrant abuse of presidential power is appalling and frightening.
The guardrails of democracy barely survived four years under Trump's authoritarian regime. I seriously doubt it would have survived were he re-elected.
