US President Donald Trump accused his predecessor Barack Obama of high treason because of “espionage” in the 2016 election campaign.

“This is high treason … They spied on my campaign, I already said this a very long time ago. As it turns out, I was right, ”the American leader told CBN News on June 22 .

In May, Trump accused Obama of “the largest political crime in the history of the country,” but refused to specify which one. At the same time, the owner of the White House had already stated that he was being monitored while Obama was in power in order to establish his connection with Russia.

Due to the accusations of the Democrats, special prosecutor Robert Muller was investigating this issue. Both Trump and official Moscow have repeatedly denied allegations of “conspiracy.” The investigation also revealed a lack of communication between the American leader and the Russian Federation.
