According to Article III of the US Constitution 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. Many have argued that, there can be no treason, because the US is not at war. However, the evidence in indictments of Russian GRU Officers, make it clear that Russia committed an act of War against the US by interfering with our electoral process, and that state will continue as long as the result that attack occupies the oval office. Therefore the aid and comfort Trump provided for Putin yesterday qualifies as treason.

Yes, there will be too few. But this is almost the first time there have been ANY. (OF course some of those who are speaking now will backtrack too. Cautious approval is the best we can be expected to do.

From the Washington Post: "Trump says he accepts U.S. intelligence on Russian interference in 2016 election following uproar over Helsinki comments" this remonds me about an old story regarding a Congressman who got carried away and insulted another Congressman on the floor of the House. Later he learned his insult contained an error of fact. He happened to run into the target in the Men's Room, and apologized. The victim accepted his apology, but said, "Next time, could you insult me in the Men's Room and apologize on the floor?"

I wholeheartedly agree with comments on treason. I am appalled by his words, comments, behavior, re: this.
I think that he is a traitor, and that he should have been led off of the plane in handcuffs. imho.

The Sun: "Jens Ohlin, professor of constitutional law at Cornell Law School, said it could be argued the US and Russia are on opposite sides of armed conflict in Syria.

He said: "Trump is clearly helping Russia — whether it rises to the level of 'aid and comfort' would be for a jury to decide or for the House of Representatives if it pursues articles of impeachment."

Last Sunday HRC tweeting about the World Cup: " "Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?" Then after the meeting with Putin, Clinton, responding to her own challenge to Trump about which team he plays for, tweeted the simple rebuke: "Well, now we know."

I agree. Drumpf attacks everyone except Vlad and we now have proof that the Russians committed a cyber attack during our 2016 election and he still protects Vlad. In my opinion that is treason. My concern is that the rethugs will do nothing about this. Also Pence said that Drumpf did a great job in Russia. It sounds to me that Pence is just as guilty as Drumpf. Our country is definitely in a huge steaming pile of sheet.

Unless we have a Regime Change soon - and it must be by legal, peaceful means - we will suffer violent, bloody national and societal convulsions. Make sure you are registered to vote, get all your progressive kith and kin registered, bone up on candidates, and above all VOTE! Losers don't make policy.

still can't figure out why GOP doesn't impeach trumple-thin-skin and let Pence lead...many problems would be over quickly and sadly Pence probably get more destruction done since he is not as incompetent (???).....on the other hand, the cult of trump followers who would not vote for anyone else is amazingly powerful in many ways.......

If I allowed myself to really bring my evil thoughts concerning Trump to the forefront, I'm quite certain I would be doomed to hell.

I am hopeful that at least some Republicans were finally able to state the truth that the Russians interfered in the election. I just can't understand Republicans privately having issues with Trump, but publicly supporting him. i hope this gets the ball rolling to impeach Trump for treason. Even Paul Ryan admits that Trump is wrong when he denies Russia's attacks on our election. That seems to be a huge step, to me. But I could just wring Pence's neck for wholeheartedly supporting Trump.

The cartoon from the NY Daily News highlights why Trump should have been disqualified for running when he stated that he could kill somebody on 5th Avenue and nothing would be done to him. Trump clearly is in collusion with Putin and he is shooting Uncle Sam-representing all of us Americans.

Dumpy will rescind words, will try to wriggle out of anything that he has ever said, at any time, at any place. ANYthing he says is going to be self-dserving, and BS.
He is a traitor, as is McConnell, but he is the one at the center of the vortex to hell!

Agree with your comment 100% TomCat. Plus all others regarding Treason. He is a true traitor and needs to truly be punished for this. Like Freya comments states, if we don't it's going to get mighty worse for us all. .He needs to be booted all the way to a nice secured barred room. Same goes for all of his cronies too. Thanks TomCat

I detest Neil Cavuto and Faux Noise, but I do agree with him on this one point.

"Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto called the appearance "disgusting." Is that worse than "disgraceful?" ... "It's not a left or right thing," Cavuto said. "It's just wrong.""

Having said that, I was flummoxed by some of the Drumpfian reactions that I read in a CBC article.

"Staunch Trump supporters in a blue-collar pocket of Maryland were unmoved either way, shrugging off Trump's initial remarks favouring Putin's denial, lauding the president for correcting a "wrong," and rationalizing Russia's interference in the U.S. democratic system by noting the U.S.'s own history of using money and propaganda to sway elections."

"You know that the Russians definitely interfered with the elections," he [Carl Hobson, 79] acknowledged. "It's nothing new. They've been doing it for years. And [Trump] didn't look at Putin and say, 'Hey, you're lying.' He negotiates different than every other politician."

"If Russia is a true enemy to the U.S. and Trump is too naive to see it, "I think he's honestly just keeping his enemies closer, to watch them," she [Ashlee Draper, 30] said."

"Tom [age 60], who didn't give his last name out of fear of being targeted by "crazy, violent liberals," says Trump is doing what he can to run a country at a time when he feels conservatives are under attack. The criticism of the Trump-Putin summit is unfounded, he said, because diplomacy doesn't work by "making an ass out of somebody on the world stage.""

It's his strategy? Drumpf is incapable of a long term strategy. Diplomacy doesn't work by "making an ass out of somebody on the world stage."? Then what does this guy call what Drumpf did and say at the G7 meeting and the NATO summit? Drumpf sure stepped in it those times!

Included in the article is video of Drumpf walking back some of what he said once he was back in Washington.

"There's a sucker born every minute" (associated with PT Barnum) and Drumpf sure brings out that saying. It appears that Drumpf has found them all!

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

What he did cannot be characterized as "I misspoke", it was a violation of his oath of office. He ignored our own nation's security assessments, he ignored everything he was told and sided with a brutal, murdering dictator over his own country. That is treason or "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" in anyone's book, including our constitution. If the party controlling both Houses of Congress wasn't complicit in his treason, it would be different. But he is giving them young, ultra conservative federal judges, and THAT is all they care about. Ideology over country. Never, not even in the Reagan years, has it been this bad. Each of the last three, soon to be four, Congresses has been the lowest rated in history and each one lower than the last. I hope our Republic survives this and we are able to repair the damage. In my lifetime. I hope it begins this fall. I hope the Mueller report (which Rudy claimed cleared Trump because he only indicted Russians) which in its next phase should include the American indictments results in the sweeping purge that is necessary at the highest levels. But trying to predict anything, until that happens, or what SCOTUS will do when it is all public, if they will support the Constitution rather than their ideology (which all previous Courts have done), we should be fine, eventually. But I no longer have much faith in any of our institutions. I didn't think that could happen here, yet, here we are. This already IS a constitutional crisis, in my opinion.

In my opinion, I think the fraud in the White House is desperately trying to cover up his own corruption. If he was innocent he would have no problem releasing his Tax Forms. He is about as CORRUPT as they come.

David C. , the GOP enables Trump merely to hold on to power. That's why we must vote!!!!

Good comments all. Precedent is very limited on treason--probably Aaron Burr main one from the White House. I look forward to media finding more legal experts to identify other applicable case law to guide us on that area...that element may become a deciding factor on whether or not sufficient courage and honor emerge for impeachment proceedings to get traction.

We have far more than tRump to concern ourselves. His bubble of protection allowed him to achieve the highest office of the nation. You can believe he did not attain that spot alone. There is more going on here than meets our eyes. Stay alert. Keep focused. And of course, Resist as much as possible.

I doubt Drumpf had a comfortable flight back; by then it must have become clear even to him that there was only one winner in this meeting: Putin.
