President Trump says he wants Adam Schiff questioned for fraud and treason.
Is this reasonable?
Depends on who you ask, so let’s look at this logically. On national television, Adam Schiff intentionally misrepresented the conversation between President Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine. Was it to fool the other members of the committee?
Not likely since by then they had all read the transcript. So, it was the television viewers he was trying to fool and would that not be a fraud? If I did a commercial for an herbal product that I promised would cure cancer, would that not be a fraud?
Of course, it would and Schiff trying to make viewers believe President broke the law would be equally fraudulent. So, how about treason? Not necessarily, however any conspiracy by two or more people is considered sedition can result in a twenty-year prison sentence.
