Donald Trump said Monday that he believes Barack Obama was guilty of “treason” for “spying” on his 2016 election campaign.
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, the president was asked what ‘crime’ he thought the investigation into the campaign’s contacts with Russia would be.
David Brody, the network’s chief political analyst, asks what crime he thinks Obama “could have committed.”
Donald Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network that he believed Obama was guilty of treason and accused the former president of spying on his 2016 presidential campaign amid the Russia investigation
David Brody, the network’s chief political analyst, asked Trump what crime he believed Barack Obama “could have committed”, to which he replied: “Treason.” Treason. Is treason
‘Treason. Treason. It is treason, ” he replied.
They had been spying on my campaign. They have been recording, a modern version of the recording, spying on my campaign.
Trump said he had long known that there had been “espionage.”
“It turned out he was right,” he said.
“Let’s see what happens to them now.”
Trump said he was awaiting the results of the ongoing investigation by United States Attorney John Durham into the origins of the Russia investigation, calling the Connecticut attorney “highly respected” and praising Attorney General William Barr.
“I want to stay out of it because otherwise he will look political,” Trump said.
‘Let’s see what occurs to them. You don’t have to tell me anything.
David Brody asked Trump what crime he thinks Obama “potentially would have committed”
Trump said Attorney General Barr has members of the Obama administration “in his sights”
Trump said he already knew he had been spied on, referring to “the insurance policy” in case he doesn’t win. ”
His reference to an “insurance policy” is the right-wing theory that Democrats spied on him to try to find dirt, which they could use if Hillary Clinton did not claim her expected victory.
As always, he made no reference to concern over Russian influence in the election, and the fact that eight of his team members have been convicted and convicted of their roles.
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s team charged eight Americans once affiliated with the Trump campaign or administration, 13 Russian citizens, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and two others with federal crimes related to his campaign investigation.
Instead, Trump referred to his ‘criminal gallery’ of people whom he accused of being part of a ‘deep state’ conspiracy to undermine him.
The president highlighted former FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, former CIA director John Brennan and James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, and James Comey, former director of the FBI.
He said Barr is “targeting them.”
He added: ‘I will say this. If it were reversed, if the other side were to sit in that office behind the resolved desk, two years ago 25 people would have been convicted and sent to jail for 50 years. ”
