On Friday morning, President Donald Trump used his Twitter account to slam officials who approved and committed the act of spying on his presidential campaign back in 2016.
Attorney General William Barr testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that felt there had been some spying on the Trump Presidential campaign team which made Democrats angry because the Atty General was forthright with his statement.
Democrats have been trying to squash the idea that someone or a group of people would commit acts of treason against a leading presidential candidate which is illegal and should have been dealt with. Trump scared them so much, they threw the law and Constitution out the window just to hurt his chances of winning.
Trump’s Friday morning tweet said the following: “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!”

Actually, Trump is taking it easy on those who did commit treason because the final punishment is actually the death penalty.
Once again, at the very heart of the issue is alleged surveillance operation perpetrated by Barack Obama administration’s Department of Justice. It seems as if they concluded that Russia had colluded with the Trump campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton and if evidence was found to support their attempts, there would have been hell to pay. Trump could have gotten into serious problems but more than half of America knew the charges were bogus.
Democrats cried for a special counsel and they got one when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein called for one to satisfy their blood thirst. Two years, millions of dollars, lives and futures damaged all in the quest to bury the President and it all turned out with a big fat zero.
Current Atty General Barr told the Senate Judiciary Committee he’s already started working on a plan to find out who initiated the Russian investigation into Trump and who were the bad actors that participated, which has resulted in character attacks against him, but he continues to do his job.
Some officials in the U.S. government colluded and conspired to take down a candidate and then sitting President because they didn’t like that he won. Trump is right, this was treason.
