Trump: What FBI Did Was Treason, Vows to Declassify FISA Documents

President Trump, in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday evening, ripped corrupt FBI players behind the special counsel investigation into Russian collusion as ‘treasonous’ and vowed to release full and unredacted Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants used by the FBI to look into his campaign.

It is the latest sign that his administration and the President’s campaign is looking to fight back against Obama-era officials after being unfairly scrutinized for over two years.

Trump particularly addressed former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page and her lover, agent Peter Strzok, who exchanged countless anti-Trump text messages, some of which referred to him in vulgar terms and others which discussed ‘stopping’ his Presidency and implementing an “insurance policy” in case he wins.

Page testified under oath that the insurance policy did, in fact, refer to the Russia investigation.


President Trump referred to the actions taken by these corrupt players at the FBI – actions meant to nullify the results of the 2016 election – as “treason.”

“They wanted to do a subversion,” the President said of the insurance policy in the event that Hillary Clinton lost.

“It was treason. It was really treason,” he insisted. “If the Republican Party had done this to the Democrats, if we had done this to President Obama, you’d have 100 people in jail right now and it would be treason. It would be considered treason and they’d be in jail for the rest of their lives.”

Trump went on to say that it’s critical that these people are called out for their actions so it never happens to another President simply because the opposition party doesn’t like them.

“If somebody tries the same thing, they have to know that the penalty will be very, very great, if and when they get caught,” he warned.

Plans to Release Documents

The President also told Hannity that he wants to “get to the bottom” of how the Russia collusion narrative began, vowing to release damning, fully unredacted FISA documents.

“I do, I have plans to declassify and release. I have plans to absolutely release,” Trump said. “I have some very talented people working for me, lawyers, and they really didn’t want me to do it early on.”

He noted that “a lot of people wanted me to do it a long time ago.”

Trump said in the end, Russia would have preferred Hillary as President – which puts Democrats, quite ironically, on the same side as the Kremlin.
