Fox Business personality Lou Dobbs wants to see a “substantial portion” of the CIA and FBI jailed for investigating President Donald Trump’s alarming relationship with Russia.
“Barack Obama’s intelligence community — a substantial portion of it — particularly the CIA and FBI, obviously involved in that covert campaign to block the presidency of Donald Trump and to subvert him once he was elected. Period,” Dobbs claimed.
He said he wants “people held to account and go to jail for it.”
He also said he “would like to offer up some names of the radical Dems on Capitol Hill who should join them.”
Dobbs then added, “nevermind” and did not list the elected Democrats he believes should be jailed.

Brace yourself for months of lawlessness — ‘Election Night’ likely will not end until 2021
There’s nothing wrong with treating American politics like a sport as long as everyone involved in the competition is playing the same sport by the same rules. There’s nothing wrong as long as both sides agree the rules are legitimate, both commit to obeying them and both accept the consequences when they break them.
But there is a problem with treating American politics like a sport when one side is playing soccer and the other is playing football while neither can agree to the rules, because one side won’t commit to obeying them. There is something wrong when one side not only refuses to accept the consequences of rule-breaking but sets out to undermine the idea of rules altogether. In that case, treating politics like a sport, as the Washington press corps habitually does, isn’t helpful. It’s harmful. Even dangerous.
‘Deranged’ Trump pummeled for lying that ‘practicing Catholic’ Joe Biden will ‘hurt God’
President Donald Trump used a supposedly non-political event Thursday afternoon to attack his Democratic opponent with a lie, saying former Vice President Joe Biden will "hurt God" if elected.
In the strange pronouncement on the tarmac in Cleveland, Ohio, Trump falsely claimed that Biden will "take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy."

Trump’s special envoy to Iran quits
The envoy leading President Donald Trump's hardline push on Iran quit on Thursday, months before an election that could reorient US policy.
Brian Hook, a stalwart Republican considered one of the most powerful figures at the State Department, decided to return to the private sector, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.
Hook "has achieved historic results countering the Iranian regime," Pompeo said in a statement.
Hook will be replaced by Elliott Abrams, another veteran Republican who was an intellectual architect of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and has been leading Trump's unsuccessful campaign to oust Venezuela's leftist president, Nicolas Maduro.
