President Trump describes how the Russian Collusion allegations began and offers a surprising name of a major person behind it. Not Christopher Steele, not James Comey, not Peter Strozk.
“The interesting thing out of all of this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign. So you know? What is that all about?”
“I have never ever said this.” President Trump told me, “but truth is, they got caught spying. They were spying!”
And then, in case I didn’t understand what he was saying to me, he added just who it was who he thought was doing the spying. “Obama,” the president said.
“It turned out I was right. By the way,” Trump said. “In fact, what I said was peanuts compared to what they did. They were spying on my campaign. They got caught and they said, ‘Oh we were not spying. It was actually an investigation.’ Can you imagine an administration investigating its political opponents?
“What they did was treasonous, Okay? It was treasonous.”
