Ex-GOP Lawmaker Puts Trump In A Hole, Makes Strong Case That He Committed Treason: ‘Not A Far-Fetched Liberal Fantasy’
In an op-ed on Thursday, former GOP congressman Tom Coleman called out his party-mates for saying that the concept of Donald Trump committing treason is just a “liberal fantasy.”
“Under the Constitution an individual commits treason if the nation is at war and the person provides aid and comfort to the enemy,” Coleman wrote in an editorial for The Daily Beast. “This is an impeachable offense, committed by word or deed. It’s one that individuals need to start grappling with seriously because it is not some far-fetched liberal fantasy to conclude that Donald Trump may have committed treason.”
“In fact,” he continued, “the case is fairly simple to make.”
“As such, the increasingly suspicious interactions between Trump campaign officials and Kremlin-linked individuals deserve close scrutiny,” the former Missouri congressman wrote.
“Did Trump assist Russia in its conduct of cyberwar against the United States?” Coleman wrote. “Did the cumulative effect of the Trump campaign and Trump’s personal actions result in aiding and abetting a hostile nation? Did Trump’s actions rise to the level of giving aid and comfort to an enemy?”
“These are extremely important issues and I suspect both Congress and the Special Counsel’s office will eventually be alarmed by the answers they find,” he concluded.
