It’s time to investigate Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell for treason.

Title 18 of the US Code, part I, chapter 115 section 2381 reads:

“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.

These are serious charges and I do not make them lightly.  What basis do I have for recommending such an investigation?

This goes beyond the appearance of wrong doing.  Russia has tried to interfere with our elections and was allowed to do so by the Trump campaign and Mitch McConnell.

This must be investigated. And if an impartial investigation determines that Trump and McConnell willfully misled the public and knowingly accepted help from Russia, they need to be charged.

Their behavior in the end may not rise to the level of treason, but it is clear that neither of them are fit to hold public office.  Their allegiance to party and power trumped their allegiance to their country.
