Republicans are marching to the beat of the Putin drum
It is bad enough that the denizens of the White House and their sycophants in Congress are ever more fervently repeating the conspiracy theories cooked up by the Russians. Now, Moscow Mitch has abdicated any responsibility for even trying to have the appearance of a fair Senate impeachment trial. Instead, he has publicly stated that he will allow the White House to control the trial. Trump and McConnell are clearly disloyal to the U.S., and completely in the thrall of Putin. This is sickening and will only get worse as they become increasingly emboldened.
Russia sees a way to defeat the U.S. by coopting our government and never having to fire a shot. Say thanks to the treasonous Republicans for handing our fate and future to Vladimir Putin.
Let Moscow Mitch tell you himself:
Moscow Mitch admits Senate trial a sham, lets Trump’s lawyers run the show and guarantees acquittal
The definition of treason as relates to federal law:
Federal. Definition: In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Conviction requires two witnesses or a confession in open court.
The definition of treason according to Trump:
Trump. Definition: Any time someone acts or speaks in a way that is contrary to the will of Donald Trump.
Trump wants legislators acting in accordance with their constitutional responsibilities arrested for treason. This is a perfect example of Trump’s panicked reaction to his obvious guilt.
