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.
Did Flynn levy war against the US? Did he give aid or comfort to an enemy? Levy war no, give aid and comfort maybe. If Flynn conspired to lift Russian sanctions would that be considered aid and comfort? To go one level deeper, is Russia an enemy?
Russian certainty would not be considered an ally but are they an enemy? This situation has more questions than answers.
One thing is sure, if Flynn and other members of the Trump administration collaborated with Russia, the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency is in question.
There is no frame work for such decit. If proven true we may be in line for an amendment to our Constitution. In the meantime, where do we go from here? We continue to pressure our leaders to investigate this matter. We resist.
