Jerry Nadler’s clown show just got serious as the House Judiciary Committee is redefining treason in order to make it one of their articles of impeachment What they are claiming is that Trump committed treason with the alleged quid pro quo deal with Ukraine, which is ridiculous.
Here is what the constitution says about treason:
“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 Democrats are calling betrayal. If it is why aren’t they going after Joe Biden who actually did make a quid pro quo deal with the Ukraine to fire chief prosecutor Viktor Skokin who was investigating Burisma Holdings and Hunter Biden? And Biden even admitted it.
Here is what the Democrats in the memo on impeachment:
At the very heart of “Treason” is deliberate betrayal of the nation and its security. Such betrayal would not only be unforgivable, but would also confirm that the President remains a threat if allowed to remain in office. A President who has knowingly betrayed national security is a President who will do so again. He endangers our lives and those of our allies.
Let me remind the Democrats that as president, Barack Obama withheld funds from the Ukraine at a time when their very existence was at stake and they were under attack by Russia. He said that he did not want to anger Russia. Was he acting as an agent for Russia? Did he not commit treason by the Democrat’s definition?

The suggestion of “treason” also parallels an argument Democrats continue to make about Trump and Russia.
House Democrats have consistently implied that the president’s dealings with Ukraine reflect, at core, an effort to help Russia — even though he has given Ukraine lethal defensive weapons to fight Russia, unlike his predecessor.
As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told CNN on Thursday night, after calling for articles of impeachment to be drafted: “In my view, Ukraine is very — all about Russia because withholding or granting military assistance to Ukraine was all to the benefit of Russia to hold up that aid.”
Despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusion, after two years of investigation, that there was no collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, Democrats continue to believe he is conspiring with what they now consider a U.S. enemy. (Under President Barack Obama, they supported the “reset” policy, appeasing Russia’s geopolitical ambitions.)
The House Judiciary Committee’s report, written by the committee’s 20 Democratic staff members, does not rule out charging Trump with treason at any point in the text, and seems to have been written to make doing so a possibility.
