What's the threshold for treason?
Did Trump display "un-American behavior when he tweeted, "Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 30, 2016. Did Trump's tweet provide aid and comfort to our enemies? The time in which the US government is handing over power is arguably the most vulnerable period in our democracy. Trump has a bromace with Putin, who murders political opponents. One of the hallmarks of our democratic system is its commitment to the peaceful transition of power. There can be only 'One President at a Time'
Any Legal EXPERT would say Donald is "AIDING & Comforting" OUR Enemies, the PATTERN is Clear ~ Even his "TRUMP Sheep" NEVER Bargained for a TRAITOR, they just wanted a BIG Beautiful Concrete WALL Built to OBSTRUCT Foreigners ~ According to most EXPERTs,Trump will also VIOLATE OUR Constitution on January 21st ~ I'm interested to see if all these so called "CONSTITUTION Worshiping" Republicans turn out to be just a "Gaggle of Charlatans" just like him or will they Actually "PROSECUTE" to Maintain the INTEGRITY of OUR Laws ~
Trump Constantly INVOKEs General George Patton, an American Military Veteran who would have surely "SMACKED" Donald's Orange FACE as he ESCORTED him to the Gallows ~ Can U IMAGINE Trump Praising HITLER while Patton watched with FIST Clenched in ANGER, or Trump Praising King George III while Gen. George Washington was leading the American COLONISTs Against his ARMY ??? AMERICANs are Appalled & Attendees appear to be Cancelling Inauguration Day at a RECORD Pace ~ Not much DAYLIGHT Between "Trump & Benedict Arnold" wouldn't U say ???
Only Hollywood "Legal Experts"
The Wall is necessary because we in the US have drug junkies, many in Hollywood, CA. Billions of dollars of drugs come across the Open Border. And don't forget the Terrorists, the ones Obama is not welcoming already.
Yeah so? Name a State that's "DRUG FREE" & what does that have to do with Trump's TREASONOUS "Behavior, Comments & Relationships"?? Communist Russians are Attacking Utilities in the USA & Traitor Trump PRAISEs the Dictator who ORDERED it
Innocence is presumed in the United States of America's legal system. Remember the Bush WMDs you guys bitch about. Time for Obama to hit the skids. Remember Benghazi if you are looking for treason.
BM: You are calling this guy a Hollywood legal poser? John Shattuck served as President & Rector of Central European University, a senior fellow at the JFK school of Government & will join the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 2017
If Trump was a Russian citizen & countermanded Putin publicly then that would be a definite "yes' on the treason because Russia broadened the definition of high treason as part of a crackdown on dissent that includes, "constitutional order, sovereignty, and territorial and state integrity ... "granting financial, technical, consulting or other help" to global companies and foreign countries.
John Shattuck, a legal expert and former Assistant Secretary of State, has warned that “a specter of treason hovers over” President-elect Donald Trump, following his denigration of multiple U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia engaged in cyberwarfare against the U.S and his dismissal of a bipartisan call for an investigation of alleged Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Mr Shattuck pointed out that treason is committed by a person who adheres to their enemies, "giving them aid or comfort,” or who has “knowledge of the commission of any treason [who] conceals and does not disclose”.
What the law says:
TREASON. Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
ENEMY OF THE STATE: According to 50 USCS § 2204 [Title 50. War and National Defense; Chapter 39. Spoils of War], enemy of the United States means any country, government, group, or person that has been engaged in hostilities, whether or not lawfully authorized, with the United States; (3) the term "person" means (A) any natural person; (B) any corporation, partnership, or other legal entity; and (C) any organization, association, or group.
Please quit bringing up Clinton folks. If you want to talk about HRC then please open your own question. Thank you. This is a specific Q regarding Trump: not Obama, not Clinton, not the tooth fairy that didn't give you a quarter when you lost a tooth as a kid.
