"What they did was treasonous..." Trump points the finer right at Barack Obama

President Donald Trump is once again pointing the finger at former President Barack Obama and his administration for what he believes was illegal spying on himself during his 2016 run for the presidency, saying that it was “treasonous” in an upcoming book.
“What they did was treasonous, OK? It was treasonous,” he told author Doug Wead for his forthcoming book, “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency,” according to The Washington Examiner.
“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?” said Trump.
“I have never ever said this, but truth is, they got caught spying. They were spying,” said Trump who then added, “Obama.”
Trump has been talking about the possibility that he was spied on in early 2017 saying that the Obama White House “had my wires tapped” in Trump Tower. He later partially retracted that statement. However, earlier this year, Attorney General William Barr said that he was investigating whether there was any “improper surveillance” in 2016.
“I think spying did occur,” Barr said.
Concern is growing in Washington as increasing reports, including two of Fox News‘ sources close to the investigation, U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into the potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct has turned into a full-on investigation. That has “a lot of people shaking in their boots right now,” according to “Justice with Jeanine” host Jeanine Pirro.
One of the sources said that the DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s expected report on the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign could shed light on why Durham’s probe became a criminal inquiry.
However, the investigation’s new status means that Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges and impanel fact-finding grand juries.
Pirro said that she finds that development “significant” and questioned whether Durham might investigating if former President Barack Obama knew about the counterintelligence probe in 2016.
“They [Durham] had an obligation to do this because once the Russian collusion was shown to be nothing other than a fraud on the American people and a tremendous harm on this country, then the attorney general had an obligation to look into the genesis of what caused this whole thing,” Pirro said.
According to Pirro, Durham has a “stellar reputation,” and has been appointed by presidents on both sides of the political aisle.
“The FBI and the highest levels at the Department of Justice were engaged in an effort to overthrow … a candidate to a sitting president,” said Pirro
