Trump: Obama Committed Treason
Actually, President Trump says that Obama did commit treason by saying on him and trying to overthrow his presidency.
The Hill claims that Trump said it without proof. That is absurd, there is ample proof that the spying was being directed by the White House.
Trump indicates that he is looking forward to the investigation that John Durham is working on.
He is expected to begin ending his investigation before the end of summer and that the investigation will offer up more than a few indictments.
I agree with the president. When you try to do away with a duly elected president and that effort requires a massive amount of corrupt actions, I would definitely consider that to be treasonous.
However, I’d be surprised if anyone is charged with treason. Put the firing squad away for another time.

Until Monday, Trump had declined to name a specific crime he believed his predecessor committed. He stepped up his attacks on Obama after the former president was reported as warning in a private phone conversation that the “rule of law is at risk” in the wake of the Justice Department’s decision to move to drop perjury charges against Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“Based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man,” Barr told reporters during a press conference. “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”
Barr told Fox News in an interview on Sunday that he expected developments in Durham’s probe sometime this summer.
