It’s really simple (and in the irony of all ironies) would make an incredible Hollywood blockbuster. During the Obama Administration, federal agencies (CIA, FBI, DOJ, NSA, etc.) used opposition research from the Hillary Clinton campaign to spy on candidate/nominee Trump. He was also spied on as President-elect and President.
Let that sink in because this **** usually happens in a banana republic. It’s also tangentially related to the Yellow Vests, Brexit, and Open Borders.
UPDATE*** These are occurring fast and furious (classical reference in headline – it’s a tribute to Glenn Reynolds).

“Now, these are all established facts. Let’s review them again: Ohr was a senior Justice Department official whose wife was employed by the research firm hired by Clinton and the DNC to get dirt on Trump. This was not reported on any disclosure forms. Ohr’s wife worked on the same Trump-Russia project as Steele, who concocted the dossier, and Ohr himself established a secret back channel with Steele, who had been dismissed for lying to the FBI — all, apparently, so that Steele was never far from learning about the investigation or having input into it. His texts even refer to a fear of “firewalls” being discovered.”
Sweet Shutdown, Roll On (American Greatness)
“The furloughed federal employees in question are the Beltway parasites who feed off the taxpayers in real America, and provide next to nothing in exchange for their three square meals a day and fancy digs in what has become, for all practical purposes, a one-party deep state that now consists of eastern Maryland, the District of Columbia, and northern Virginia—and thus the rest of America. Bureaucrats are happy to munch on the hands that feed them, with slovenly, indifferent “service” in useless, invented sinecures, but would never think of barking at the guys who actually throw them the bones, and thus keep them ensconced in petty power over their fellow citizens.”
