“This is both despicable and impeachable itself. The president is hinting at executing people who were involved with a whistleblower complaint—public servants who bravely spoke out against an abuse of power in complete accordance with US law. https://t.co/QxW7hZcCaI”

"The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now," President Trump is heard saying.

Footage of President Donald Trump making a threatening statement against the intelligence community whistleblower and anyone who provided them with information has emerged, with the president implying that those involved should be executed for treason.

“I want to know who’s the person, who’s the person who gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to a spy,” he said. “You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”

Watch:

Trump's remarks come in the wake of a whistleblower complaint alleging he used the power of his office for personal political gain in attempting to pressure the president of Ukraine to investigate his potential political rival, Joe Biden.
