Trump Says Clinton Server Infiltration Was 'Punishable by Death' at 'Stronger Time'

For years now, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have been at odds with one another, and this week saw a rather bold escalation of the war of words between the two.

Last week it was revealed that members of Clinton’s team had attempted to hack into the network at Trump Tower during the 2016 election – a revelation that is reminiscent of the “ObamaGate” spying scandal that arose from the Steele Dossier’s use in the FISA warrant process.

Trump, upon hearing the Durham probe’s latest bombshell, is now suggesting that such a crime was once “punishable by death”.

Trump released a statement about a court filing by Special Counsel John Durham on Friday, which alleged the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to “infiltrate” servers belonging to Trump Tower and later the White House to link Trump to Russia, according to Fox News.

Trump said on Saturday that the filing provided “indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign.”

“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,” Trump said in the statement.

And then…

“In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death.”

The statement was met with surprise in many political circles, but GOP mainstay Jim Jordan appeared to agree with Trump, stating that his suggestion was “right on target”.
