It is amazing that the Left and Dumorats can speak about “treason,” when we have scores of unpunished crimes of Hillary and Obama floating around in free space, never to be addressed. What the hell is wrong with Trump; does he have any juices in his body at all?
“During Monday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, 2020 Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA) reacted to the report that President Donald Trump repeatedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and his business dealings. Weld said “it couldn’t be clearer” that what Trump did was “treason pure and simple” because Joe Biden is a presidential candidate. “Well, obviously, canceling primaries undermines democratic institutions and democratic elections, but that’s far from the deepest high crime the president has committed here,” Weld told host Joe Scarborough. “He’s now acknowledged that in a single phone call right after he suspended $250 million of military aid to Ukraine, he called up the president of Ukraine and pressed him eight times to investigate Joe Biden, who the president thinks is going to be running against him.” “Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election,” he continued. “It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions — that is treason. It’s treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty. The penalty on the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he could work out a plea deal.”
So, let’s get this straight. It is not treason to request the Ukrainian president to investigate a supposed crooked deal; that is called law enforcement. That this is the son of a presidential candidate is highly relevant, because evidence gathered could implicate old man Biden in the abstract. Further, the investigation would be about someone who is not a presidential candidate; these Leftoids cannot get basic facts right. They can no longer think straight. This is one of the daily illustrations of the Great divorce, and why Civil War 2.0 is inevitable, because the nation is too divided to hold together. Therefore, it must split open.
