*eye roll* Treason? Really?

‘Treason’: House Judiciary Committee Report Implicates Trump in Ultimate Crime.


The House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday on the legal and constitutional framework for impeaching President Donald Trump includes a discussion of the most serious crime listed in the Constitution: treason.

Citing the constitutional provision that impeachment applies to “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the report hints throughout that President Trump might have committed treason against the United States.

The Constitution specifically defines treason in Article III, Section 3: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

The House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that definition to include what it calls “betrayal,” and declares: “Although the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy.”

The phrase “schemes with foreign powers” is sufficiently vague to include the “quid pro quo” plan that Democrats allege the president attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a political opponent.

(No direct evidence exists to prove that claim, and the only direct witnesses testified before the House Intelligence Committee that the president did not want that “quid pro quo.”)

Later, the report again implicates President Trump in “treason” by creating an expansive definition that just happens to reflect Democrats’ argument that Trump endangered national security by suspending security assistance to a U.S. ally.

The report expands the definition of “treason” as follows:

At the very heart of “Treason” is deliberate betrayal of the nation and its security. Such betrayal would not only be unforgivable, but would also confirm that the President remains a threat if allowed to remain in office. A President who has knowingly betrayed national security is a President who will do so again. He endangers our lives and those of our allies.

In releasing the report, House Judiciary Committee Chairman tweeted Saturday that Trump “betrayed our national security” — a claim that falls within the broad definition of “treason,” as expanded by his committee’s arguments: read more

  1. This is their claim against the man that ran on Make America Great and now Keep America Great. Like him or not DJT loves America as much as he loves himself which is biggly and this BS just isn’t going to fly outside their lunatic shrinking base.

  2. Then I would surmise that inventing phony charges of treason and consequently staging a false impeachment trial, by the Democrats, in order to stop or delay the President from utilizing his Constitutional authority and to prevent him from carrying out his chief executive responsibilities would also be considered treason!

  3. In the addled mind of the common lefty that will be a hard sell, if for no other reason, lack of concrete evidence. On the other hand I do know of just a case of TREASON, with stone cold evidence, committed by another president that may be getting some attention in the very near future. So Naddless chose your words carefully.

  4. With these Progs now adding Treason in with all the other non-starters they have, it looks like they have dropped the 2019/2020 version of the “Little Boy & Big Boy” 1940’s bombs on themselves. There may be not many of them left after the 2020 Elections.

  5. Nadler, Schumer, Schiff, Vindman etc are not Americans anyway. How can they call treason? It’s not their country.

  6. “… the broad definition of “treason,” as expanded by his committee’s arguments … “

    well, they have us there …. ’cause if anyone knows about ‘broad’ & ‘expanded’ it’s Chairman Umpa Loompa, Jerry Waddler

  7. The Constitution specifically defines

    … no such thing. The Constitution says what The Supreme Court says it says. Subject to change, without notice. So say they. So bow we all.

    As for “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”…

    If the proles didn’t giggle at that myth, there would be no United States.

  8. Oh, this is too much. I don’t know whether to laugh or be angry, so I’ll do/be both. How absurd. One of my greatest wishes is for charter schools to overtake — or at least seriously compete with — gov’t run schools, so that a significant number of young people will know the whole story about the Democrats in years to come. It’s the only hope we have that they won’t grow up thinking it was the Republican party president who committed treason — just as it was the Republican party who invented slavery and fought a civil war to continue it.

  9. The only treason I see is the corrupt communist scumbags all pissed off because they just had their graft cannon shut off.

  10. This is akin to a defendant unjustly arrested with a heinous murder being hauled before a grand jury consisting of Charles Manson, Ed Kemper, Ted Bundy, Richard Speck and Jeffrey Dahmer only to find out they intend to recommend charges for said heinous murder.

    Trump’s “crime,” at least in the eyes of the Democrats, is putting the interests of this nation first. I suggest we put Nadler and Schiff before the proverbial wall and then have a trial.

  11. This is insurrection. The democrats are engaged in an insurrection.

    We are actually living in a time of insurrection.

  12. Good grief. On the way to church this evening I heard on the radio a montage of quotes [on Gutfeld’s show, I think] from demonrats wherein the key word was “founders”: Paraphrased — We stand with the founders, Trump has committed all the crimes the founders feared most, Trump has committed every crime the founders listed, and so on. It was a long list of lies.

  13. They must have some darn good evidence this time. This is the big one. The one Schiff has been hinting about for years. Finally, the walls are closing in!

    Treason is now defined as the creation in the mind of a political opponent of a belief in the possibility of a motive compatible with acts which could be interpreted as betraying the nation.

    If you can parse that sentence, you might be a Democrat. (Apologies to Jeff Foxworthy)

  14. They’re going back to RUSSIA!!11! collusion. Which was bullshit and even the NYT said it was bullshit, and the mueller report said it was bullshit.

  15. Well, I reckon if the Dems are going to have to go down in flames over impeachment, then go big. At least Wiki will say that Trump was impeached for treason.
