Having failed for the last 7 months in their Quixotic Quest to somehow remove United States President Donald J. Trump from office, the Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have decided to go after Donald Trump, Jr.
Foxnews.com reported yesterday that
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said this afternoon that he now sees Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation as a probe into possible “treason.”
Kaine and others on Capitol Hill reacted this afternoon to the latest revelations about a meeting last June between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer.
Earlier today, Trump Jr. released what he said was the “entire email chain” of conversations setting up the meeting with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.
In the email chain, Trump Jr. expresses interest in obtaining damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
Kaine, who was Clinton’s running mate last year, said the new reports take the probe to another level.
“To meet with an adversary to try to get information to hijack democracy, the investigation is now more than just an obstruction of justice investigation, more than just a perjury investigation, it’s a treason investigation,” he said.
But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) questioned why the Russian government would send a lawyer who didn’t know anything to the Trump campaign.
“It’s kind of an odd way to suggest the Russian government wants to help,” he said.
Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett, himself a layer, wrote the following response to the Democratic and MSM outcry over this supposed “Treasonous Collusion”…
Erasmus, the noted classical scholar, described lawyers this way: A most learned species of profoundly ignorant men.
He had a point. How else do you explain the wild pronouncements of lawyers like Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, former White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter and Senator Tim Kaine, D-Virginia? Each have suggested Donald Trump Jr. committed treason by meeting with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
All three lawyers earned their degrees at Harvard or Yale. Yet, they appear to have slept through their class on constitutional law.
Treason is defined in Article 3 of the Constitution and codified in 18 USC 2381: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, either levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort with the U.S. or elsewhere.”
Meeting with a Russian lawyer is not treason. The U.S. is not at war with Russia. Even if the president’s son received information from the Russian government or otherwise collaborated with foreign officials, it constitutes neither waging war against the U.S. nor aiding the enemy.
If it were otherwise, a myriad of Republican and Democratic Senators who admit meeting with the Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, might be somehow guilty of treason. In these meetings, information is surely exchanged. No one has ever suggested it rises to the level of criminality. Indeed, it is what diplomats and foreign officials do. It is what our own officials do in foreign lands.
Collusion has nothing to do with elections and political campaigns. Which renders special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation meaningless. He is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility.
Even if the Trump campaign had acted on information provided by the Russian lawyer, it would still not constitute treason. Even conspiring to subvert the government does not rise to the level of treason. Under our Constitution, Americans are permitted to speak against the government, undermine political opponents, support harmful policies or even place the interests of another nation ahead of those of the U.S.
You would think these lawyers, however misguided by their political prejudices, would nevertheless comprehend such a fundamental principle of constitutional and statutory law. Clearly, they do not.
So, boys and girls, you want to talk about “Treasonous Collusion”?
It’s funny how none of the Democrats seem to remember the nice, little money-laundering operation that Hillary Clinton had going as Secretary of State.
Just how corrupt was the pipeline between the Clinton Foundation and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton?
By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]
However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation. Again, according to discoverthenetworks.org…
* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]
* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]
Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation, as was previously reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, this was not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.
The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation, revealed during the months leading up to the 2016 Presidential Election, along with the revelations which involved the DOJ refusing to investigate the Clinton Foundation and Cheryl Mill’s involvement in Hillary Clinton’s influence peddling as Secretary of State under President Barack Hussein Obama, via means of the Clinton Foundation, turned out to be breath-taking in its size and scope, as more and more unscrupulous details were being revealed.
And yet, not a mumbling word was said by these “upstanding Public Servants”, who want both Donald Trump Sr. and Jr.’s heads on a platter, and who just happen to belong to the same political party as Hillary Clinton. The American Public never heard a sanctimonious peep out of the DNC’s Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, when Clinton’s Treasonous Activities were going on, either.
What a bunch of hypocrites.
