It doesn’t get any more high-stakes than this when a current POTUS calls out a former POTUS by name and uses the word TREASON.
My goodness, this is something to behold.
President Trump has ratcheted up his claim that the Obama White House spied on his 2016 campaign, charging in a new book that it was a “treasonous” act by the former Democratic president.
“What they did was treasonous, OK? It was treasonous,” he told author Doug Wead for his upcoming book, “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency.”
“The interesting thing out of all of this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign. So you know? What is that all about?” said Trump.
“I have never ever said this, but truth is, they got caught spying. They were spying,” said Trump who then added, “Obama.”
“It turned out I was right. By the way,” Trump told Wead in excerpts provided to Secrets. “In fact, what I said was peanuts compared to what they did. They were spying on my campaign. They got caught and they said, ‘Oh we were not spying. It was actually an investigation.’ Can you imagine an administration investigating its political opponents?” said the president.
In the book, Trump said that the Russia probe undercut his presidency.
“Anybody else would be unable to function under the kind of pressure and distraction I had. They couldn’t get anything done. No other president should ever have to go through this. But understand, there was no collusion. They would have had to make something up,” he said.
Attorney General Bill Barr said earlier this year during a Congressional hearing, “I think spying did occur.”
Barr went on to appoint US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to investigate the origins of Spygate.
It was reported late Thursday evening that Durham’s probe is now “criminal” in nature.
DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is also in the final stages of completing his report documenting the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] abuses by Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election targeting Donald Trump. (continue reading below)
There are some who have complained often that “nothing will happen” regarding the rampant abuses that took place by D.C. politicians and their far-left media counterparts before, during, and after the 2016 election.
That complaint does a terrible disservice to the sacrifice and ongoing fight being waged by President Donald Trump. It is the kind of weak whining that the president’s enemies are counting on for it is their hope enough people will simply give up trying to hold the D.C. swamp accountable, President Trump’s support will collapse, and his administration destroyed.
If such complaints had been the majority in 1776, America would have never been.
Thankfully bravery and determination won the day then just as we should all be hoping to see happen now.
The stakes are nearly as great.
President Trump has now entered another phase in this prolonged war for the soul of the nation, one where he is now risking everything much like the Founding Fathers did before him.
That kind of risk, that kind of danger, deserves far more than people whining that “nothing will happen” or “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
No, it deserves your support, your dedication, and your readiness to fight alongside this president as he works so hard to combat the Deep State tyranny that would further divide and conquer a nation.
