Trump demands prosecutions, reparations after explosive revelations in Durham court filing
"This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate," the former president says.
Former President Donald Trump demanded Saturday that there be prosecutions and reparations after Special Counsel John Durham revealed in an explosive court filing that Hillary Clinton's campaign plotted to mine data about the Trump campaign and White House computer servers years ago to concoct false Russia collusion allegations.
Durham's latest court filing "provides indisputable evidence that my campaign and presidency were spied on by operatives paid by the Hillary Clinton Campaign in an effort to develop a completely fabricated connection to Russia," Trump said.
"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," he added. "In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this."
Durham's court filing said lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to "infiltrate" servers belonging to Trump Tower and the Trump White House to create an "inference" of Russia collusion in 2016-17, hoping to get federal agencies to investigate,” Fox News reported.
The actual court filing did not use the word “infiltrate“ but rather said the executives were seeking to “mine“ data about the servers.
