President Trump wrote this morning, “My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!”
The President’s comments come after news earlier this week that Attorney General William Barr appointed Connecticut U.S. attorney John Durham to “examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection involving the Trump campaign was ‘lawful and appropriate.’”
Durham has previously investigated corruption in law enforcement and the destruction of CIA videos.
President Trump has repeatedly made calls to “investigate the investigators.”
After the Mueller report’s release in April, he tweeted, “Mueller, and the A.G. based on Mueller findings (and great intelligence), have already ruled No Collusion, No Obstruction. These were crimes committed by Crooked Hillary, the DNC, Dirty Cops and others! INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS!”
