President Donald Trump took aim and pummeled his political rival ex-chief executive Barack Obama late last week. As Trump addressed the press in a media session with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday. Trump made an arresting accusation as he accused Obama administration Justice Department officials of “treason.”
“He [Mike Flynn] was an innocent man,” the president told. “He is a great gentleman, he was targeted by the Obama administration and he was targeted in order to try and take down a President and what they have done is a disgrace and I hope a big price is going to be paid, a big price should be paid.”
In addition he announced, “I hope a lot of people are going to pay a big price because they are dishonest, crooked people. They are scum and I say it a lot, they are scum, they are human scum.” Plus he added, “The Obama administration Justice Department was a disgrace and they got caught, they got caught, very dishonest people but much more than dishonest, it is treason, it is treason.”
The Independent reports:
The DOJ dropped criminal charges about a week after internal documents surfaced showing FBI officials questioning how they could get enough on Flynn to convict him – or at least get him fired from the White House. He previously pleaded guilty to charges of lying to federal investigators.
Trump declared, “So I am very happy for general Flynn. He was a great warrior and he still is a great warrior. Now in my book he is an even greater warrior.” He was questioned, “Who would you like to see pay a price for this?”
And replied, “The people should pay a big price for what they have done to this country.” As well as, “They should pay a big price and their partner very complicit is a thing called the media. The media is totally guilty and all of those writers and so-called journalists, they are not journalists, they are thieves, all of those journalists that received a Pulitzer Prize should be forced to give those Pulitzer Prizes back because they were all wrong.”
