The President Said In A Short Breif, “If I Spied On Them, They’d Be Talking About Treason, Death Penalty”

Former President Donald Trump remarked that if the tables were turned, Democrats would be talking about “treason” and the “death sentence” following the filing of a lawsuit against the perpetrators of the “Russia hoax.”

“I felt it was vitally important to bring it up, because imagine what would have happened if I had spied on their campaign, John,” Trump said in an exclusive one-on-one interview with Newsmax’s John Bachman backstage before his Save America event in Commerce, Georgia, on Saturday night.

“What are they talking about if I spied on their campaign, on Obama, Biden, or Clinton – and the same thing happened where we caught them red-handed?” Treason?

“Are they suggesting you spend the rest of your life in prison?” “Are they discussing the death penalty?” And these individuals must not be permitted to get away with their actions.”

Trump did not propose that the defendants in his complaint, which was filed late last week, should suffer such severe consequences, despite the fact that their previous actions would lead them to accuse him of doing what he said they did to him and his campaign.

Trump also claimed that Attorney General Bill Barr had declined to press charges against “deep state” officials who started and directed the Russia probe. The “probe of the investigators” by special counsel John Durham is still proceeding, although Trump has openly pressed for results before the 2020 presidential election.

“Bill Barr didn’t want to be impeached, so he chose not to do it,” Trump said Bachman. “It’s a pity because, honestly, you need bravery to battle these people: deep state or whatever you want to call them.” Donald Trump’s allegation that he had been spied on was one of the most disputed accusations he has made.

He made the charge in a variety of ways. For example, when Trump was only two months into his presidency in March 2017, he tweeted, “Terrible!” Just learned that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ at Trump Tower just before the election. Nothing was discovered. “This is McCarthyism!” exclaims the speaker. He was less explicit but as certain two years later, in April 2019, when he claimed, “There was obviously espionage into my campaign.”

Then we learned that the FBI hired a confidential informant, a professor called Stefan Halper, to spy on Page and another low-level Trump aide, George Papadopoulos, in 2016. Then we found that in 2016, the FBI dispatched an undercover agent — a woman who went by the nickname Azra Turk — to surreptitiously record Papadopoulos’ chats.

So, there’s plenty of proof that the FBI spied on Trump’s campaign. We’re now learning about another form of eavesdropping between the Clinton campaign and the Trump campaign. The discoveries stem from John Durham’s probe into the beginnings of the Trump-Russia connection investigation, which was appointed by the Trump administration and maintained by the Biden government.

Durham reported in a court filing Friday that in July 2016, a tech executive named Rodney Joffe (his name has been widely reported) worked with the Clinton campaign’s law firm to “mine Internet data,” some of it “non-public and/or proprietary” — which means secret — to look for information that could be used to claim a Trump-Russia connection.

According to Durham, internet traffic from Trump Tower, Donald Trump’s Central Park West residential building, and — when Trump was elected president — the Executive Office of the President of the United States were among the confidential material that was “exploited.” “As part of a delicate agreement,” Durham argues, Joffe’s business “had come to access and manage specialized servers for the EOP.”

They then “used this setup to obtain disparaging material on Donald Trump by mining the EOP’s [Internet] traffic and other data.” The Clinton campaign then went to the CIA to try to get the nation’s intelligence agency to join the anti-Trump operation. That was similar to previous Clinton efforts to the FBI, when operatives sought to pique investigators’ interest in the so-called “Alfa Bank” narrative, which was a fabrication alleging a slew of questionable ties between a Russian bank and the Trump campaign.

Durham claims that the overall purpose was to “create ‘an inference’ and ‘story’ linking then-candidate Trump to Russia.” So there was a two-track operation going on: while the FBI was spying on its own, the Clinton team was spying as well, and attempting to enlist the help of the FBI and CIA. All of this was part of a bigger strategy to promote the “narrative” of Trump-Russia connection.
