Donald Trump Slandered the Intelligence Community by Accusing Them of Spying on Him
Type: Lashes out at PeopleMay 12 2019 Severity: Targeted: Robert Mueller
& Obama Administration
Donald Trump lashed out at the intelligence community in an unhinged rant accusing them of illegally spying on him and his campaign during the 2016 election. This is hardly the first time Trump uttered his baseless accusation, which, to be clear, is 100 percent false. Trump went on to falsely claim he was exonerated of Obstruction of Justice. That is not true and Robert Mueller made it abundantly clear in his report that the only reason he didn't charge Donald is because of a longstanding DOJ policy saying that a sitting President can't be indicted.
Quote | The blatantly false accusation has been widely debunked on numerous occasions.
"Think of it. I became President of the United States in one of the most hard fought and consequential elections in the history of our great nation. From long before I ever took office, I was under a sick & unlawful investigation concerning what has become known as the Russian Hoax. My campaign was being seriously spied upon by intel agencies and the Democrats. This never happened before in American history, and it all turned out to be a total scam, a Witch Hunt, that yielded No Collusion, No Obstruction. This must never be allowed to happen again!"
