( – “TREASON!” President Trump tweeted on Friday morning:

My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!

In four other tweets, the president wrote:

58% of people say that the FBI broke the law in investigating Donald J. Trump.



“What happened is that Donald Trump won. Down goes Comey.” @foxandfriends

Trump apparently was reacting to Bill Hemmer's interview with Attorney General William Barr, in which Barr said he has been "trying to get answers to questions" about the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, but "I found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate."

The Justice Department inspector general reportedly is nearing the end of his investigation into alleged FISA abuse by the FBI, and separately, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, John Durham, is looking into the FBI's apparently flimsy basis for starting the Trump-Russia probe.
