Democrats Hint They Plan to Add Treason To Trump Impeachment Articles


The Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are hinting that they plan to charge President Trump for treason.

They are desperate and they know their fake charges over Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Zelensky isn’t sticking and they have gone too far to back off now.

So, the plan is to try to convince Americans that the president has committed treason.

It won’t work.

The constitution defines treason as  “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 are looking to extend that definition to include what they call “betrayal”.

The House Judiciary report includes:

 “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.”

They go on to try to change the definition of treason to include:

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.

This they are basing on President Trump’s hold on money allocated by congress. But they pretend to forget that congress voted for aid money when Barack Obama was president and he withheld the money because he did not want to offend the Russians. Yet, they claim it’s Trump that’s siding with Russia.

The suggestion of “treason” also parallels an argument Democrats continue to make about Trump and Russia.

House Democrats have consistently implied that the president’s dealings with Ukraine reflect, at core, an effort to help Russia — even though he has given Ukraine lethal defensive weapons to fight Russia, unlike his predecessor.

As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN on Thursday night, after calling for articles of impeachment to be drafted: “In my view, Ukraine is very — all about Russia because withholding or granting military assistance to Ukraine was all to the benefit of Russia to hold up that aid.”

Despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusion, after two years of investigation, that there was no collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, Democrats continue to believe he is conspiring with what they now consider a U.S. enemy. (Under President Barack Obama, they supported the “reset” policy, appeasing Russia’s geopolitical ambitions.)

The House Judiciary Committee’s report, written by the committee’s 20 Democratic staff members, does not rule out charging Trump with treason at any point in the text, and seems to have been written to make doing so a possibility.
