A crowd at President Trump‘s rally Sunday evening chanted “lock him up” after the president accused his predecessor, former President Obama, of being caught “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign.

During the event in Henderson, Nev., Trump told attendees that the former president “got caught spying on my campaign,” referring to longstanding accusations from him and his allies that the investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia in 2016 was orchestrated by the Obama administration in an attempt to sink his candidacy, a claim for which there is no evidence.

In response, many attendees began chanting “lock him up,” a riff on the “lock her up” chant the president encouraged during his 2016 run against then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, during which he alleged that his opponent had committed crimes by operating a private email server as secretary of State.

The president has ratcheted up his rhetoric aimed at Obama in recent months, accusing the former president in June of committing “treason” while touting the upcoming results of the Justice Department’s investigation into the origins of the probe into the Trump campaign.

“Treason. Treason. It’s treason,” Trump told CBN News in June.

“They’d been spying on my campaign,” the president added at the time. “Turned out I was right. Let’s see what happens to them now.”

His repeated baseless claims come as the Justice Department’s own inspector general previously told the Senate late last year that neither the former president nor former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, were involved with the decision to begin the investigation.

“We certainly didn’t see any evidence of that in the FBI’s files or the department’s files,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee in December.

  1. I DON’T THINK THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL EVER SEE THE “COUP” EXPOSE’ BE UNCOVERED. NOBODY WILL GO TO JAIL. THE OBAMAS’/THE HILLARYS(THE WHOLE ROTTEN / CORRUPT FAMILY), AND THE BIDENS(THE WHOLE CORRUPT FAMILY/, AND THE PELOSI'(THE WHOLE CORRUPT FAMILY), SHOULD HAVE BEEN JAILED BY NOW, AND FACING CHARGES OF “T R E A S O N/OBSTRUCTION/MURDER”

    I HATE TO SAY IT, BECAUSE I’M A TRUMP FAN, BUT THESE PEOPLE, WHO WERE ALL INVOLVED WITH THE “COUP” ATTEMPT, WILL DIE OF NATURAL/OLD AGE CAUSES,” BEFORE OUR GOVERNMENT EVER DOES ANYTHING TO THEM. . WE HAVE SEEN NO LAW ENFORCEMENT OUT OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, AND MANY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN KILLED/HARASSED/PUT OUT OF BUSINESS, BECAUSE OF HIS LACKNESS, IN ANY KIND OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. THE RIOTING IS WELL OVER 100 DAYS NOW, AND STILL GOING…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………?????

  2. “His repeated baseless claims come as the Justice Department’s own inspector general previously told the Senate late last year that neither the former president nor former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, were involved with the decision to begin the investigation.”

    Only technically correct because it wasn’t treason, merely sedition.. Otherwise it is false. Both were at the January 5th briefing about the “investigation.” Both were aware and chose not to stop it. Biden requested “unmasking” of Trump affiliates. These facts are undisputed and certainly lend credence to Trump’s accusations. Regardless, the buck stopped with Obama.

  3. So funny, we have the most criminal, constitution-bashing president ever now inhabiting the oval office, and they’re chanting about Obama??? How willfully blind can you be?

  4. Have you ever asked yourself why most Americans disagree with you? Have you ever caught this president lying to the American public? If so, do you think that is normal for the leader of a country? Can you look at yourself in the mirror and say that Trump is looking out for working families and not just for his rich friends? Do you really think that his interest in putting a hotel in Moscow a lie? Are you really thinking at all about the future of our nation?

  5. Lock him up with Killery. The usurper and liar, lock him up. The biggest deception in American history is called obama. I never believed he was born in Hawaii, the creep was raised a muslim in Kenya where he should be deported. The liar and deceiver’s time is up, investigate him and lock him up and throw away the key.

  6. Obamas are the biggest joke yet . Obama may go down as a president , but as a nasty president with a male wife . He will never match trump even tho he trys to take credit for everything trump does . Shows how sad his life is that he couldn’t make anything work when he was in office . Glad I didn’t vote for the loser . I can always say it’s not my fault for what he needs .

  7. I’ve read several reports that would verify Obama’s conversation with Susan Rice, and others in a final meeting would give some indication something was up. A true patriot reporter would be investigating the transcripts, that many of us read, regarding Flynn. There were enough reports already sent out, so wiping their phones of evidence may not be enough. They thought it was funny, however, Communism and the loss of your freedom is not funny. One of the Marxist BLM co founders, Alicia Garza, has links to the Chinese Communist Party. A reporter learned donations to BLM go to the Chinese Progressive Assoc. with strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party. We have 50 Communists in Congress, so unless reporters wake up to the reality, we are on the edge to lose capitalism. America will be lost to communism. The strategy of the impeachment, the Marxist BLM promoted by Democrats and all the other nonsense is the same strategy used to conquor Venezuela. The Ukraine Prosecutor had filed a complaint against Joe Biden, not President Trump. It’s all been a set up. Obama’s administration gave 3 million to the Wuhan Viral Lab, in 2015, the same year, Marxist BLM was founded. China owns about 20% of our Am. industries and thousands of farmland. From 2012-2016, Obama’s administration gave them quite a foothold, then encouraged the riots as “a revolution to get things done.” Much to think about. If you are biased, you are not fair to America or to yourself.

  8. Fascist Trumpitus is a danger and a disgrace.
    My father served in the Army for 30 years and I for 22 to prevent fascism from rearing its ugly head in this nation.
    Herr Dictator Trump-ass is the epitome of evil in its most malevolent form. He is a racist and a liar. He’s Putin’s bitch puppet.
    He, along with his racist supporters, should be eradicated.

  9. Obviously you are being overcome with stage four Libtard Disease. What a terrible way to go. I really hope you don’t suffer too much.

  10. You don’t dispute tRump being a liar, and racist….How about draft dodger? Oh wait, he didn’t want to be a sucker? You have to admit he does admire Putin…wow! you making fun of Democrats and and he is the epitome of EVIL. You are the one that is mentally ill, no wonder you are a Rump follower….

  11. 1. Most Americans actually agree with Trump. Wait until the election results…

    2. I DON’T think President Trump’s behavior is “normal” for the leader of this country – if you consider previous leaders as “normal”. Previous “leaders” have been absolute disgraces and liars with hatred toward America. Trump loves America and is working to make/keep it great!

    3. I look in the mirror every day and thank God that Trump is in office. I pray every day that he remains in office. If you listen to people who have known him for many years, they will tell you he is very respectful of working families, and has done more for them than ANY of our “leaders” in the past 30 years.

    4. Do you REALLY know what is going on with Biden/Harris/Obama/Clintons? Are YOU really aware of the future of our nation under these people? You need to wake up before our country is sold down the river to the Marxist/Communist regimes.

  12. The Five Stages of Trumpism
    1. It’s a total lie, never happened, fake news.
    2. It happened, but it’s not a big deal.
    3. Ok it might be a big deal, but it’s not illegal.
    4. Allright it’s illegal, but Hillary and Obama blah blah blah so it’s ok.
    5. Get over it LIBTARD, you’re just a sore loser!

  13. Lock him up for what? Like many conservatives you ignore facts and believe only what you want to believe. Now that we have a president who’s told well past 20,000 lies since taking office there is a rich library of things you want to believe.

  14. john–it is not the presidents baliwick to just go out and be the cop–
    as we saw in seattle and portland–the rioting was allowed to continue because of the inaction
    of the mayors of the cities where there was major rioting-they told their police to stand down and allow the rioting–the chain of command goes first the police–then the mayor-then the mayor would have to ask
    his governor for national guard-aid -and the governor could enable the national guard-or if he decided to
    he can then ask for the president to bring on the federal troops-
    so as you see your theory about the riots having any thing to do with trump is vastly out of order and does not pass any thought of truth-

  15. hey moderate this–everything i wrote was true and none of it was out of order -there was no name calling-
    and everything was the truth-or are we not allowed to tell the truth any more —

  16. john–TRUTHFULLY–THE LACK OF LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS BEEN ON THE PART OF THE MAYORS OF THE CITIES WHERE THE RIOTS HAVE BEEN HAPPENING–
    AS A FACT TRUMP HAS NO JURISDICTION TO INTERCEDE IN STATES RIGHTS-WHICH MEANS THE STATE HAS TO POLICE IT’S MESS FIRST BEFORE THE PRESIDENT CAN DO ANYTHING -EXCEPT IN THE ONE CASE WHERE FEDERAL PROPERTY WAS BEING DESTROYED-A TOTALLY DIFFERENT THING AND HE DID TAKE ACTION-BUT IN CASES OF RIOTING THE POLICE ARE THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE-IN THESE CITIES HOWEVER –THE MAYORS ARE THE IMMEDIATE REMEDY AND THESE MAYORS ARE THE ONES THAT DID NOT DO THEIR DUTY –NOT THE PRESIDENT–
    john–your entire argument does not hold water-

    TRUMP -PENCE 2020

  17. john–you are off base-the president has no direct control over riots in cities of the USA- unless specifically asked to intercede by the governor of the state-which did not happen

  18. STUPID -STUPID STUPID-you are triple dumb–
    TRUMP-has SHOWN THAT HE CARES MORE FOR AMERICA-THAN THE
    BUM OBAMA–
    DID YOU NOT SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT TRUMP –TRUMP ALONE WAS
    RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT OF THE CENTURY AND A RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT
    FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR TILL BACK TO THE CIVIL WAR DAYS–CAN YOU HONESTLY SAY THAT THOSE ARE TRUMPS CRONIES –MILLIONS OF BLACKS AND MIDDLE CLASS CITIZENS

  19. Rosanne Lady, you must be living on another planet? Would you like it if your granddaughter encountered Trump and he started talking about her “pussy” and other nasty remarks or would you think he is still wonderful. He is a nasty, dirty man, an ugly sore.

  20. Thank you My Grychak. You just quoted my thoughts verbatim. Until recently, I thought we were a country of laws and honor—apparently, I have been living in a dream world

  21. John F Grychak: I cannot disagree with most of WHAT you said, only that you (as I often feel) seem disappointed at the APPARENT lack of results. I leave it to the most effective president I’ve seen, and voted for in about half-a-century, to Prioritize handling the obstacles WE face. The APPARENT lack of results also seems to be a core Bukharov (until Lenin’s death) principle to control we proletariat by MSM-Marxism followers. Just as obamao crowed: “He’ll have more flexibility AFTER the election” (as hard as I find to credit the kenyan with accurately looking forward).
