Trump suggests Rosenstein, McCabe are ‘treasonous,’ citing Fox News
Info Banquet ^ | FEBRUARY 19, 2019 | Ibadmin

President Trump suggested Monday night that former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe committed treason, making his case in a tweet that cited Fox News’s Sean Hannity, hours after lobbing similar claims at Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.

Trump sent the tweet during Hannity’s nightly show, in which the host assailed McCabe for claiming that he and Rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power.

Quoting Hannity, Trump wrote, “’The biggest abuse of power and corruption scandal in our history, and it’s much worse than we thought. Andrew McCabe (FBI) admitted to plotting a coup (government overthrow) when he was serving in the FBI, before he was fired for lying & leaking.’” @seanhannity @FoxNews Treason!” @seanhannity @FoxNews Treason!

I’m not sure which word gets misused more - traitor or racist.

That’s what everyone was saying before the presidential election, and then the mid terms. People keep predicting he will go after the cabal after this and after that, yet nothing happens. The reality is that Rod is basically leaving on his own terms and will probably never be held accountable.

Correct assessment.

First, I think it is prudent for us to reexamine the difference between Treason and Sedition.

Treason in the US Constitution is narrowly defined, because that's what the Founders wanted. In the history of Europe, Treason was whatever "the Crown" or the ruling parties said it was, and those charged with Treason were usually tortured to death in the most horrible way possible.

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. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

18 U.S. Code § 2381. Treason

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.

I am not a lawyer, but I have read that most lawyers and Constitutional scholars agree that Treason, as defined in the Constitution and current US Code must involve working with foreign power.

Sedition, on the other hand, is working against one's own country and government, but does not involve a foreign state in attempting the coup or overthrow.

Treason and sedition are terms that are similar in nature and are applied to cases wherein individuals or organizations have acted in defiance of established authorities. Sedition laws have always been in place to allow governments to take coercive action against acts of defiance that are meant to overthrow them. Treason involves acting against the interests of a state and thus confuses many as to whether they should use treason or sedition in a particular context. The key difference between sedition and treason is that the sedition is a crime against one’s own state, and so is treason, but treason is considered far more serious crime than sedition.

That brings us to this: did Obama, Comey, McCabe, Ohr, Rice, Powers, Jarrett, Clapper, Brennan, Hillary, Priestap, Yates, Lynch, Holder, Reid, Rosenstein, and all the rest commit Treason?

I believe that answer is yes, because their seditious acts also involved foreign governments in their attempted overthrow of the US President and his administration.

The cabal used 5 Eyes (4 foreign governments) to conduct illegal wiretaps, surveillance, planting of evidence, and a host of other crimes in their scheme to frame and take down President Trump. To get around US Law, they used these foreign governments to aid in an attempted coup.

That makes it Treason.

President Trump re-tweeted this meme months ago:

So, where are the arrests?

You are correct, in that Rod Rosenstein, who twice told McCabe he would "wear a wire" in an attempt to entrap the President of the United States is today, the Assistance Attorney General of the United States.

Let's all let that sink in.

I have been waiting for arrests for years, just like most of you. And.............................................nothing.

Perhaps, this time, they are "just around the corner", however, I won't bet the bank on that prospect. To paraphrase Gus McCrae from Lonesome Dove, our government and our Dept of Justice is "Too leaky a vessel for anybody to put much hope in."

Moreover, I have read all the recent Q drop. Q is telling (and re-telling) everyone things we already know or have known. FISA, the corrupt media, Illegals "voting", vote fraud, the attempted coup, etc., etc., and etc.

Gee, thanks Q. We knew all that.

When are the arrests? "Midterms are safe." No, they weren't. "Are you ready for arrests!?" (rhetorical question asked by Q last summer). Yes Q, we were ready for arrests months ago. Where are they?

The fact that vote fraud stole many Congressional seats last November, and nothing has been done should teach us that despite all the rhetoric about justice, the Deep State can still win major battles without consequences.

If tomorrow, there are massive arrests, and scores of these traitors are hauled onto C-17s and C-130s bound for GITMO and military trials, we would all cheer.

But I won't put too much hope into a leaky vessel.

Treason is encouraged. We have a long way to go down further, before this elevator reaches the bargain basement. Rough Ride ahead.

Clearly treason against the rightfully elected POTUS and We-The-People who elected him.

Clearly treason. Treason in DC, the land of traitors, usurpers of USConstitution and agencies working for foreign interests.

They and their actions are, and were, treasonous. What else could it be?

The swamp is wide and deep! Trump must find the right people before he begins the headhunting; otherwise, the whole process could be short-circuited by swamp scum still in the offensive system. This is ground not ever trod upon before and is dangerous, especially for Trump.

And? Trump suggests a lot of stuff that never involves actually penalizing the people committing the crimes. Sorry, but it comes off as a lot of hot air, and the media plays it that way.

The only people getting punished these days are those who have an association to Trump or the GOP.

Rosenstein should have been walked out this morning.... either by HR or by the secret service.

Treason requires helping a foreign power that is at war with us.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT, MR. PRESIDENT? Yes, I’m shouting, because if President Trump doesn’t do anything about it, then nobody will. And somebody has to. This cannot be tolerated, from either party.

Stick with the plan.</s>
