He does not get any more clear than that. 

Talk about getting called out. 

 

Strzok is not the only guilty party either....

President Trump on Thursday accused an FBI agent who criticized him while serving on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of committing “treason” against the U.S.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump argued that FBI agent Peter Strzok had plotted to undermine his presidency before he even came into office.

Strzok was once a key figure in the 2016 FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material. He was removed from the special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling after it was discovered that he exchanged anti-Trump text messages during the investigation with fellow FBI agent Lisa Page, with whom he was reportedly having an affair.

 

In one of those text exchanges, Strzok says that there’s “no way” Trump gets elected but that if he does there needs to be an “insurance policy” in place because “we can’t take that risk.”

“A man is tweeting to his lover that if [Clinton] loses, we’ll essentially do the insurance policy,” Trump said in the Wall Street Journal interview. “’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,” Trump continued. “That is a treasonous act. What he tweeted to his lover is a treasonous act.”

It's worth a trial, IMO.

 

The FBI has to be purged of this latest flare up of political culture.  There has to be a return of confidence that they value law above politics.  The nation needs to be able to trust them.

The fact that the FBI as an entity is not going crazy that one of their people acted this way puts the whole organization in question imo.

Sure hope Trump has something (evidence) that will stand up in a court of law to support his claims of treason.

 

Time for Trump to put his cards on the table or face defamation of character, libel and slander suits.

He's got enough circumstantial evidence to point a finger. An investigation would no doubt uncover the needed proof. Where there's smoke....

He's done all he can. Red flag is fluttering in the breeze. 

 

News Flash! The President does not have power to prosecute. 

That's what the DOJ is for.

"Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."

 

The accusation of "Treason" is as silly as his plethora of accusations against all his critics.    laughable.

".....The Cold War saw frequent talk linking treason with support for Communist-led causes. The most memorable of these came from Senator Joseph McCarthy, who used rhetoric about the Democrats as guilty of "twenty years of treason". As chosen chair of the Senate Permanent Investigations Subcommittee, McCarthy also investigated various government agencies for Soviet spy rings (see the Venona project); however, he acted as a political fact-finder rather than a criminal prosecutor. The Cold War period saw no prosecutions for explicit treason, but there were convictions and even executions for conspiracy to commit espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union, such as in the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg case.

 

On October 11, 2006, the United States government charged Adam Yahiye Gadahn for videos in which he appeared as a spokesman for al-Qaeda and threatened attacks on American soil.  He was killed on January 19, 2015 in an unmanned aircraft (drone) strike in Waziristan, Pakistan..."
