Former President Donald Trump suggested that unspecified members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign team be executed in a statement released Saturday.
“The latest pleading from Special Counsel Robert Durham provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia,” Trump said in the statement from his Save America PAC. “This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution. In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this.”
Durham made the charges in a court filing this week, and Trump was replying to them.
“Lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to ‘infiltrate’ servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an ‘inference’ and “narrative’ to bring to government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia, a filing from Special Counsel John Durham says,” Fox News reported Saturday. “Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussman has pleaded not guilty.”
Dick Morris, a former top aide to former President Bill Clinton, believes a rematch between Hillary and Trump in 2024 is a “strong possibility.”

President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will be toast if Democrats lose control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections, according to Morris, paving the way for a second Hillary campaign, with husband Bill playing a key role in her approach.
“There’s a good chance of it,” said Morris, referring to a Hillary-Trump rematch, to John Catsimatidis on the radio host’s WABC show.
“Hillary has set up a brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do,” Morris added. “Knowing the people around her, I believe there is only one person capable of that level of thinking — and that’s her husband, Bill.”
“The second the election is over … every Democrat is going to take a shot at Biden and Harris. They will be DOA,” Morris said.
Meanwhile, while no Democrats have publicly criticized Biden, Clinton has warned her party against aligning itself with radical Democrats’ ideals.
”She has set up a zero-sum game where the worse [Biden] does, the better she does because she’s positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden. Not just to Biden, but to the extreme left in the Democratic Party,” Morris said.
“The person who staked out the turf first and owns the turf in the Democratic Party is going to be Hillary. It’s a brilliant, brilliant strategy,” Morris said.
