Trump Accuses FBI of Treason Over Investigation of His Campaign: President Trump claims his 2016 campaign was “conclusively spied on,” accusing the responsible parties like the FBI of “treason” and threatening everyone involved with “long jail sentences.”
Is it just me, or does Trump’s rambling sound just a wee bit too similar to some medieval king shouting “off with their heads!” I mean, about the only thing missing here is Attorney General Barr drawing up plans to convert Trump Tower into a 21st century “Tower of London.” Hell, I’m sure he could convince Stephen Miller to run the dungeons.
But jailing the investigators? Come on! That seems like a pretty tepid response, especially when it’s pretty obvious Trump considers ANYONE who disagrees with him “guilty of treason.”
That said, I’m pretty sure most Americans could get behind the President's idea of “long jail sentences” for traitors. In fact, that’s precisely why so many of us supported investigating his campaign in the first place.
Of course, the President’s followers will justify his banana republic-style threats by pointing out how the “populist movement” he created is now spreading throughout the entire world.
Perhaps, but if you ask me - this movement is sure starting to look and smell a whole lot more like a "bowel movement” than any populist movement.
