On Wednesday’s episode of his “The MC Files” program, radical conspiracy theorist Chris McDonald interviewed Brad Johnson, a former CIA officer who now runs an organization called Americans for Intelligence Reform. During the interviews, Johnson said that it would be “very healthy for our country” if former government officials like former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe, as well as former CIA Director John Brennan and others were executed for treason.
Johnson claimed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference and possible collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election “was all politically motivated from the very beginning” and designed solely to take down President Trump.
“If your goal is, through the manipulation of lies and the manipulation of the justice system, to unseat the president, well what is that?” Johnson asked, rhetorically. “How do you define that as something other than treason? I don’t like coming to that conclusion. I’m saddened and ashamed of our country if that’s what people felt they could get away with, but I just don’t see what else you can conclude.”
“I think people will go to jail and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some people faced with treason charges when it is all said and done,” he continued. “I think that’s very healthy for our country. If they are guilty of this, then I think the death penalty, which would be on the table, would be appropriate. Because I think these people who think they are above the law like this, so recklessly so, need to pay the ultimate price.”
“I think we’d see law and order and respect for the Constitution start to come back to the forefront,” Johnson concluded. “I would like to see the full weight of the law, where it is reasonably applied, to be applied. So if they are truly guilty of this stuff, I think they should pay the price.”
