Trump Threatens To Jail FBI Officials Who Investigated Russia Interference, Gets Brutal Response

Using his Attorney General William Barr as a hitman, President Donald Trump began laying the groundwork to jail his perceived enemies as the Justice Department follows his order to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.

Barr has asked U.S. Attorneys to examine how the counterintelligence and FBI investigations began and has refused to turn over the unredacted report from special counsel Robert Mueller, who has a recording of a person “connected to” Congress attempting to influence Michael Flynn’s testimony.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the government Thursday to provide a public transcript of a voice mail message from Trump’s attorney reminding the former national security adviser of the president’s fondness for him, when Flynn was considering cooperation with Mueller’s team.

Trump reacted by citing a Fox News poll showing “58 percent of people say that the FBI broke the law” by investigating him, and calling for investigators to be jailed for “treason.”

Twitter users were quick to respond, and it wasn’t pretty.
