Trump’s “Treason”

Every morning I wake up with a sense of dread. What has that man in OUR Oval Office done now? My stomach churns as I listen to his latest shenanigans.

Well this time, he’s crossed the line. By deciding to declassify the FISA email memo, this President should certainly be brought up on charges of treason. I don’t use that word lightly, but in this case it is certainly appropriate, not only for Trump, but for all the Republican representatives and senators who stand behind this decision. This email isn’t even an official document…it’s an interpretation of the FISA application by a Trump stooge. National security is at stake, and we cannot tolerate this gross negligence. All of our intelligence agencies have advised against the release of this email and state that because it is written out of context, it doesn’t reflect the truth. People need to see this for what it is…a means of distracting and discrediting the Russia investigation.

I have used the word treason before. Over the last 7 years, the Republican majority in Congress have refused to do their job..a job we elected them to do, a job we are paying them to do and a job which must be done for the benefit of WE THE PEOPLE. For this refusal to do the business of the country, I felt that these members too should be charged with treason.

However, that act pales in comparison to what Trump and his Republican cohorts have managed to do with the release of this email memo. I say – Charge them all with treason.
