JUST IN: President Trump Has Accused The F.B.I. Of Treason (DETAILS)

-

President Donald Trump is more unhinged than perhaps ever before. He has a history of disrespecting American servicemen and women, and working to undermine American intelligence agencies, but this is particularly disturbing.

Twitter provides a succinct record of Donald Trump’s pre-existing opinion of the FBI, despite the flip-flops he made during televised interviews throughout this period… let’s recap:

It is fair to assume that the majority of Americans would agree that this is not an appropriate way for a president to be speaking about their country’s intelligence community. But what about downright accusing agents of treason?

Apparently to Trump, anyone who criticizes him is guilty of treason – or so it would seem based on his recent evaluation of an American intelligence officer. Thursday, President Trump accused an FBI agent of exactly that, claiming that he sought to undermine his presidency and plotted to do so even before he got into office. The agent, Peter Strzok, served on Robert Mueller’s special counsel and released this information in an interview with The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

Strzok was also a key member of the investigation by the FBI in 2016 into Hillary Clinton and her handling or mishandling of classified material. Fellow FBI agent Lisa Page and Strzok did indeed send anti-Trump text messages during the investigation into Russian collusion, leading to his removal from said counsel. Specifically, he texted:

‘[There’s] no way [Trump will get elected, but if he does there’ll need to be an] insurance policy [because] we can’t take that risk.’

President Trump stated as a part of the same WSJ interview that:

‘A man is tweeting to his lover that if [Clinton] loses, we’ll essentially do the insurance policy. We’ll go to phase two and we’ll get this guy out of office. This is the FBI we’re talking about – that is treason. That is a treasonous act. What he tweeted to his lover is a treasonous act.’

Three times in a single statement—we get it, Trump, you feel his actions are treasonous, you’re going to milk this to death so you can try to pretend the investigation into Russian collusion was without merit and play the victim. This is of course, independent of the fact that both Page and Strzok left the counsel as a result of their compromised perspectives on Donald Trump.

Is there anyone with sense left in America who feels President Donald Trump ought to still be in office? Frankly, if American intelligence agents feel this way—people who swore to protect and pursue the best interests of the nation at a great risk to their personal safety—should that not tell us something critically important?

House Intelligence Committee investigators are set to meet with both FBI agents to discuss their involvement in the Trump Russian collusion and Hillary Clinton classified information probes to determine whether anything was impacted as a result of their political views. Due diligence is certainly being done, but it is apparently not enough for President Trump.
