Comey apologizes to Clinton, accuses Trump of treason
WASHINGTON D.C. -- On Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency's investigation of Donald Trump had produced "enormous, incontrovertible and disturbing evidence" that the failed former presidential candidate committed treason by colluding with Russia to steal November's election from President Hillary Rodham Clinton.
At a press conference, Comey said it's the FBI's recommendation that the Department of Justice indict Trump as a traitor - a crime that, if proven in court, is punishable by death.
"Hillary Clinton's staggering 3 million-vote victory at the ballot box ensured that Trump's brazen attempt to contravene American democracy and betray his fellow citizens were ultimately unsuccessful. But our independent investigation of Trump's ties to Putin has produced conclusive proof that Trump worked with an enemy of America, and his campaign actively called on Russian agents to commit crimes against his rival, including hacking her emails."
At one point, Comey referred to Trump as "the greatest traitor since Benedict Arnold." Chants of "Lock Him Up" and "Kill The Traitor" could be heard from the streets.
Comey apologized to Clinton for both violating her Constitutional rights and abusing the powers of his office and violating her rights in the course of investigating her emails in communications with Congress.
The White House has not responded to requests for comment.
