During Monday’s White House press conference, in which the Secret Service had to evacuate the President from the briefing room as he answered reporters’ questions, Donald Trump implied that the Barack Obama administration might have committed treason.

TRUMP: ‘They have been caught red-handed. It’s probably treason’
President Trump pulled no punches with his answer.
President Trump said point blank that “the Obama campaign spied on our campaign and they’ve been caught,” referring to surveillance crimes allegedly committed by the former administration.
“Now let’s see what happens to them,” Trump continued. “They have been caught. They have been caught red-handed. It’s probably treason. It’s a horrible thing they did.”

Trump calls surveillance of his 2016 campaign by Obama allies the ‘political crime of the century’
Trump also said that “they used the intelligence agencies of our country to spy on my campaign and they have been caught.”
“There are a lot of people involved,” Trump added. “I don’t want to say how much she’s involved, frankly if he chooses her that’s fine, but it’s a potential liability.”
President Trump then listed the names of people he believed were involved, including President Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Trump said these people’s surveillance of his 2016 presidential campaign amounted to the “political crime of the century.”

Trump campaign on ‘Deep State’ Susan Rice: ‘She is absolutely our No. 1 draft pick’
Team Trump would like nothing better than to run against a Biden/Rice ticket, as Obama’s former national security adviser is a near perfect symbol of the Deep State that has targeted the president since day one through surveillance and other measures.
Politico reported on Wednesday, “Joe Biden still may be undecided about whom to pick for a running mate, but Donald Trump’s team knows exactly whom it wants: Susan Rice.”
“Trump’s aides and allies accuse Rice… of helping cover up crimes for two of the president’s favorite foils, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, making her just the kind of ‘deep state’ villain who could fire up his MAGA base,” the report continued.
A Trump campaign official told Politico, “She is absolutely our No. 1 draft pick.”
