They’re gonna get what’s coming to them.
Trump is taking no prisoners when it comes to bringing down the swift hand of justice on those behind the Russia collusion narrative and who spied on his campaign back in 2016.
“Treason” was the word Trump used to describe the “really bad situation,” in a recent tweet where he implied that “long jail sentences” await those who participated in the ploy (cough, Hilary..ahem, Obama…)
Take a look at the president’s tweet here for yourself:
Check out how Twitter is reacting to President Trump's allegiance to bringing justice to traitors of our great nation:
Fox News has more:
President Trump issued a grave warning Friday to those who allegedly "spied" on his 2016 campaign, calling their actions "treason" and saying “long jail sentences” are in order.
“My Campaign for President was conclusively spiedon. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!” Trump tweeted.
Trump's claim that the campaign was "conclusively" spied on follows Attorney General Bill Barr's testimony that "spying did occur" against the Trump campaign in 2016.
The attorney general is pursuing a formal review into the conduct of that investigation. Earlier this week, it was revealed that Barr had appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut, to lead that investigation -- to cover “all intelligence collection activities” related to the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election and any misconduct during the early stages of the FBI’s original Russia probe.
According to sources familiar with the investigation, Durham has been working on his review of the Russia investigation “for weeks.” He is expected to focus on the period before Nov. 7, 2016—including the use of FBI informants as well as alleged improper issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants. Durham was asked to help Barr “ensure that intelligence collection activities by the U.S. Government related to the Trump 2016 Presidential Campaign were lawful and appropriate.”
A source also told Fox News that Barr is working “collaboratively” on Durham’s investigation with FBI Director Chris Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats. Durham is also working with Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is currently reviewing allegations of FISA abuses and the role of FBI informants during the early stages of the Russia investigation.
The Hill also commented:
The president's tweet comes days after Attorney General William Barr announced the appointment of a U.S. attorney to review the decisions that led to the establishment of an investigation into Trump's campaign and Russian election interference.
The attorney general infuriated many Democrats on Capitol Hill earlier this year when he asserted that "spying" on the Trump campaign had occurred in 2016, while declining to take a position on its legality. His choice of language has earned rebukes from former members of the Justice Department, including former FBI Director James Comey.
Barr told The Wall Street Journal and Fox News in interviews published Friday that he had received insufficient answers from Justice Department personnel about the reasons why an investigation had been launched into the Trump campaign in the first place.
“Government power was used to spy on American citizens,” Barr told the Journal on Friday. “I can’t imagine any world where we wouldn’t take a look and make sure that was done properly.”
