‘Treason’: House Judiciary Committee Report Implicates Trump In Ultimate Crime

(Breitbart) – The House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday on the legal and constitutional framework for impeaching President Donald Trump includes a discussion of the most serious crime listed in the Constitution: treason.

Citing the constitutional provision that impeachment applies to “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the report hints throughout that President Trump might have committed treason against the United States.

The Constitution specifically defines treason in Article III, Section 3: “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 House Judiciary Committee report, however, expands that definition to include what it calls “betrayal,” and declares: “Although the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy.”

The phrase “schemes with foreign powers” is sufficiently vague to include the “quid pro quo” plan that Democrats allege the president attempted to make with Ukraine, trading U.S. aid for investigation into a political opponent.

(No direct evidence exists to prove that claim, and the only direct witnesses testified before the House Intelligence Committee that the president did not want that “quid pro quo.”)

Later, the report again implicates President Trump in “treason” by creating an expansive definition that just happens to reflect Democrats’ argument that Trump endangered national security by suspending security assistance to a U.S. ally.

The report expands the definition of “treason” as follows:

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.

In releasing the report, House Judiciary Committee Chairman tweeted Saturday that Trump “betrayed our national security” — a claim that falls within the broad definition of “treason,” as expanded by his committee’s arguments:

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.

  1. What ever these people try to convict my President on will back fire two folds in their faces. This President will go on to be one of the best Presidents this country has ever had. President Trump was giving to this country by a most divine being the Lord God and he has plans for this nation, he created it and is not going to let if fail as long as we who believe do not turn our back on the God and stand beside our President Donald J Trump. Nope he is not perfect but he loves his country, his God, and we the people of the USA and its Constitution. He is a true American and stands tall and has taking a beaten that all others would of walked away from, He keeps going with profound strength and knowledge combined with wisdom given from someone much higher than he and we. The good Lord works in mysterious ways …

  2. TELL ME ABOUT YOUR TREASON PELSOI AND HILLARY OF ASKING FOR MONEY FOR RE -ELECTION FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. AND IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR HOW LONG YOU NASTY WOMEN SINCE THE 60’S YOUR DIRTY AS ALL GET OUT MAFIA PELOSI, AND I WOULDN’T DOUBT IT FROM SCHUMER OR SCHIFF EITHER. SO WHO IS THE CRIMINAL NOW.!!!!!!!?????????????

  3. If anyone is guilty of Treason it’s the Democrats/Liberals/Leftists whatever they want to call themselves at the moment. There is proof of their complicit Treasonous actions. Pres. Trump did not commit treason, so they can just forget that nonsense. Will these hate mongers ever stop stooping down to below ground level every time they reach out for another excuse? It usually one they have already committed themselves so they are very familiar with their accusations.

  4. Treason? Yeah, right! The only traitors I know are the ones with the letter “D” after their names (with a couple or three “I”s thrown in for good measure). Every Democrat since JFK has helped to write the comprehensive textbook on treason!

  5. The very sad Democrats are always throwing nasty words around at the president-racist, traitor, misogynist, homophone,…… just cover up themselves.

  6. Treason certainly is funny to me that the most TREASONOUS people in this country are Democrats and for them to be bringing treason charges against President Trump is about as brainless as can be ! ALL of the Democrats should be brought up on Treason not President Trump and I PRAY TO GOD that the Democrats ARE brought up on TREASON !

  7. A classic photo of two ‘real’ walking dead. Not one positive vibration can be noticed in that ‘dead’ photo. Truly, these are two of the most whacked out fools in the show notwithstanding Schift-head.

  8. President Trump has done nothing wrong. Only good things for our country. The only reason he hasn’t got everything he wanted to done is that he keeps having to deal with all the BS these liberal idiots keep throwing out there. I don’t see how anyone can continue to believe their lies and can’t see their deceitful behavior. They want a Socialist government and they just about have succeeded with that in California. God help the rest of the nation.

  9. The on people guilty of any version of treason here is the Democrat Socialists. There’s absolutely no evidence, as proven in the hearings, yet they say there is. Schiff has been constantly saying he had proof of collusion, yet had nothing to present. They simply either believe their twisted accusations for real, or they’re lying through their teeth, one of the two. Either version of those I consider an extreme threat to our national security, because they’re all either suffer from schizophrenia, with paranoid delusions, or they’re committing treason by all lying, and simply impeaching to impeach. Either way, I’m hoping that there are no issues in shutting this farce down at the Senate level. This whole thing is just beyond ridiculous, one of the reasons his approval ratings has increased, because of the shit show that the Dems put on with this whole whistle blower crap, where the whistle blower doesn’t even have to testify, or show his face, and add to that the fact that they have allowed for ANY defense whatsoever. It’s been a railroad job since the start. And sadly, the vast majority (99%) of the Democrat Socialists are in on it. Many of them are just lemmings, toeing the line simply to toe the line, they don’t want to cause waves. Kudos to those Democrats who voted against impeachment, the whopping 2 or 3 that it was. It’s sad that 99% of the Democrat Socialists are simply corrupt as hell. In the end, all they have is accusations, nothing else. Yet, they’re willing to call hearsay evidence… hearsay isn’t even allowed in a court of law! I consider a sham coup against the President of the United States, Treason of the highest order. Back then people were executed for high Treason. And one thing for sure… if they don’t stop with their BS, they’re gonna start a civil war.

  10. Do the Democrats who support these crooks not understand that the closer Trump gets to exposing their secret crimes the worse they fight to keep him from doing so. Trump should not have to deal with this for five more years because they have much to hide from Obama down. I hope they all go down together. They will never be missed because all they did was tried to saved their own and their cohorts necks.

  11. Is there no end to the Democrats attempting to hold this President responsible for doing nothing wrong while the Clintons are free and happy and rich. No one held them responsible for their evil deeds, and how about the upper echelon of the CIA, FBI, whose members refused to hold others like the Clintons responsible?

  12. Wait, if what Trump did is Treason then what the hell is what HIliary Clinton did with Bhenghazi, the Russions, our Uranium and more??? Isn’t that Treason that she should be punished for and all those who stood by and aided and abetted her and covered up for her.?
    what am i missing here,

  13. I think the Democrats should be impeached for abuse of power for trying
    to impeach the president. There is no evidence that Trump did anything
    wrong. Trump 2020 and we can get rid of the pathetic lying democrats.
