Former Trump campaign aide Corey Lewandowski said on Tuesday that the investigation into Russia’s attack on the U.S. election system may be the “greatest crime” waged on the American people ever.
While appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Republican Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana teed up a question for the president’s adviser.
“You called it a witch hunt I wonder if you’d like to elaborate on that any further?” Johnson asked.
“I think that this fake Russia collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the American people in our generation if not ever,” Lewandowski opined. “This is a president who was duly elected by the American people and members of certain bodies refuse to accept the election results.”
“But when you support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama its a different set of rules,” he continued. “There’s been no accountability for the FISA abuse that occurred, the spying on Americans in violation of the Fourth Amendment or the lives ruined because they wanted to support a candidate for president of the United States and it’s shameful.”
Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) quickly pointed out that Americans had faced many “crimes” worse than the Russia investigation.
“The greatest crime committed against America in history.”
Corey Lewandowski thinks that investigating President Trump’s crimes is worse than:
– The 9/11 attacks
– Pearl Harbor
– Lincoln Assassination
– Oklahoma City Bombing
– Every mass shooting

Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hours
Russia on Monday denied a US newspaper report that its warplanes bombed four hospitals in rebel-held territory in Syria over a period of 12 hours this year.
The Russian defence ministry rubbished the claim in a report by The New York Times, saying "the alleged 'evidence' provided by the NYT is not worth even the paper it was printed on".
The May strikes -- which the newspaper tied to Moscow through Russian radio recordings, plane spotter logs and accounts by witnesses -- are part of a larger pattern of medical facilities targeted by forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's devastating civil war.
Black family arrested for ‘loitering’ on their own front lawn
On October 1, a black family was standing in the front yard of their home, when police approached. They were arrested for loitering even though they were on their own property, reports KYW news.
Loitering offenses have historically been used as a way to purge people seen as undesirable, such as the homeless, from public spaces.
Now, the family is demanding answers from the Chester Township Police Department in Pennsylvania.
"It's a terrifying thing. It makes me feel as though the police can knock down your door, and drag you out of your home at anytime," Rachel Briggs told KYW. "This is an incident that made me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home," she added. Her sons and nephew were dragged off to jail, where they spent the night while the family scrambled to make their bail.
