As the circus sideshow act continues to move forward through the House, some of President Trump's opponents are taking cheap and distasteful shots at the President.
On the left, we practically have nearly every Democrat in the House against Trump. Even though Nancy Pelosi hates Trump, she knew that it was a bad idea to push for impeachment because if and when they lose, that is only going to boost Trump's chances of winning another term.
Some are taking their proposed opposition to the President much, much further, however. Bill Weld, the former Governor of Massachusetts who is currently trying to challenge President Trump in the 2020 primary race told MSNBC that he believes the President could be put to death due to the treason he claims Trump committed. This guy must be no Republican at all if he's claiming that the President did commit treason because it's 100% clear that he didn't and Republicans are united on this.
“Well, obviously, canceling primaries undermines democratic institutions and democratic elections, but that’s far from the deepest high crime the president has committed here,” Weld told host Joe Scarborough. “He’s now acknowledged that in a single phone call right after he suspended $250 million of military aid to Ukraine, he called up the president of Ukraine and pressed him eight times to investigate Joe Biden, who the president thinks is going to be running against him.”
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election,” he continued. “It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions — that is treason. It’s treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty. The penalty on the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he could work out a plea deal.”
All the evidence points to the fact that Trump did nothing wrong. In fact, the only real evidence that we have proves that he didn't do anything wrong.
