After premiering his new Fox News Channel show with a snoozefest featuring a libertarian intellectual, firebrand conservative host Mark Levin threw his followers some red meat on Sunday night.

While the rest of the country was preoccupied with the Oscars, Levin brought on notorious leaker and FBI-hater Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) onto his show to spin the story of how Democrats were “spying” on the Trump campaign.

“As chairman of the House intelligence committee, did the Obama administration spy on the Trump campaign?” Levin asked.

“I think it’s pretty clear. I think average Americans understand that that did happen,” Nunes said. “To what degree, it’s hard to know because the proper investigations haven’t been done, but it started with unmasking, unmaskings of Trump transition officials that I think are still questionable. We don’t know if that’s been investigated or not.”

Together, the men made the case that Trump was the real victim of Russian spying, and not the possible perpetrator of a conspiracy to accept foreign help in influencing the election. They laid out a timeline that, like Nunes famous memo, selectively presented a few facts without any context to give the impression that Obama was spying on people like Carter Page—who the FBI had been watching since 2013.

“Don’t forget that the FBI knew about the dossier because they were working with the FBI to complete the dossier,” Nunes said. “So the FBI has the documents.”

But then Nunes said that the document was created by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which paid for it, and not the FBI, which he had just accused of creating it.

“Also, you just reminded me of something—let’s also not forget that this was not just a product of the FBI that was getting it from Steele, but the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee,” Nunes added.

“This is an Obama administration-wide effort, is it not?” Levin goaded.

At this point, they felt they had Obama red-handed.

“This would be a leak then!” Nunes said.

“This would be a leak!” Levin said.

“This would be an illegal felony leak!” Nunes said.

The contention, it seems, is that Obama illegally leaked information proving his own wrongdoing.

You can watch the conversation below, but fair warning that it may make your head hurt.

According to a new report from NBC News, President Trump's recent acceptance of a formal transition of power to the incoming Biden administration came after a meeting with his top advisers in the midst of growing pressure from Republicans and business leaders.

"The advisers argued that the combination of snowballing calls from Republicans in Congress to begin the transition, disastrous public appearances by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and mounting legal setbacks were creating a public relations problem — and that Trump needed to shift course to protect his brand,' as one ally put it," NBC News' Carol E. Lee, Peter Alexander and Hallie Jackson report.
