To Democrats, everything involving Trump is treason. It’s getting a little Boy Who Cried Wolf-y and quite frankly, their uneducated and incorrect use of the term is watering it down and making it meaningless.
I suggest that these people turn off CNN, sit down with their legal dictionaries and look up some of the terms they’re throwing around like candy. They’d be surprised to learn that they’re using most of them in the wrong way. Or maybe they wouldn’t. Perhaps they just use them as buzzwords to get their base riled up so they’ll donate more money and become more politically active, despite not knowing what is being talked about.
That sounds about right.
Former Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine has some thoughts on the Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer and not surprisingly, they’re not exactly intelligent.
“The investigation — it’s not, nothing is proven yet, but we’re now beyond obstruction of justice in terms of what’s being investigated. This is moving into perjury, false statements and even into potentially treason,” he said.
Watch the video below:
So, I think this is a great time to see how the Constitution of the United States defines treason and see if it matches up with Kaine’s.
According to USConstitution.net:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
Now, what are the odds that Kaine can prove that Donald Trump Jr.’s acts were treasonous? I don’t think that it’s possible at this point, but maybe he knows something we don’t know. (Unlikely.)
People need to stop using words they don’t understand, especially when they carry as much weight as “treason.”
