During an interview with Newsmax, Donald Trump falsely accused Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden of spying on his campaign and brought up “treason” charges, “life in prison” and the “death penalty” after being asked about his goal by suing Clinton.
“Let’s talk about this lawsuit against Hillary Clinton,” Newsmax’s John Bachman told Trump. “What do you hope to accomplish with that?
“Well, they spied on my campaign you had all of them,” Trump replied. “They’re all the names you’ve been reading about. For years, Bill Barr didn’t want to be impeached. And so, therefore, he decided not to do it, which was a shame because frankly, you know, you need courage to fight these people, the deep state or whatever you want to call it. ” Trump added.
“But I think we’re going to do very well with it,” he said of the lawsuit before seemingly suggesting what punishment he wants for Clinton.
“We have a great lawsuit and I felt it was really very important to bring it because think of it if I spied on that campaign, can you imagine what would happen John if I spied on their campaign or Obama or Biden and Hillary Clinton? And the same thing happened where we caught him because we caught him red-handed, if that ever happened? What are they talking about? Treason? Are they talking about the rest of your life in jail? Are they talking about death penalty? And these people can’t be allowed to get away with this stuff. Trump concluded.
Naturally, the internet had to respond.

Asking for a friend. Has the death penalty been ruled out if it can be proven that a sitting POTUS organized and/or participated in a seditious conspiracy to overturn a free and fair election?

Bigly lawsuit. The most beautiful lawsuit ever. Words. So many words and letters. Beautiful letters and I understand them better than anyone.

Shocked the guy didn't ask Trump why his 2016 campaign shared polling data with Russian intelligence.

He literally hasn’t been held accountable for a single thing his entire life, but okay

Federal judge orders Trump lawyer John Eastman to release emails to Jan. 6 committee — saying the court finds more likely than not Trump and Eastman “dishonestly conspired to obstruct the Joint Session of Congress.”

So, because projection, we now know Trump spied on Obama's, Clinton's, and Biden's campaigns. Most likely w/Russia's help. If they were listening…
