When Trump invited the Russians to interfere our elections in 2016 that was treason. Now he’s done it again by inviting help from Ukraine in trying to smear his potential rival in 2020. There is no longer a debate:
An enemy attacks us and our commander in chief doesn’t care? If this is true then I will use, for the first time, a word that distresses me deeply: treason. This isn’t just my view. Article 3, Section 3 of our beloved Constitution says: “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 Russians attacked us.If the commander in chief who swore to defend us said it didn’t bother him, this is “giving them aid and comfort.” The Russians are surely gearing up for more mayhem in 2020, and what does Trump care? Treason.
Now we learn that Trump has leaned on foreign governments like Ukraine and Australia to dig up dirt that would help him politically. For all his dirty tricks, Richard Nixon would never have dreamed of doing that.
Trump is a man with no ethical compass or shred of decency. Worse than Nixon? Worse in every way. And worse than all the rest.
