3. Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution

Treason:

"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."

The term "treason" gets tossed about very casually, but the Constitution gives treason a very specific definition.

That ought to do it. Works for me.

13. To be treason it must fit the actual Constitutional definition

and not just because you really want it to be treason.

11. Specially what in this reading of Article III contradicts Trump possibly committing treason?

"Adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort" sounds appropriate here. I know you will say Russia is not an enemy. So if one nation attacks another, the attacking nation is not an 'enemy'?

2. Sad thing is...

...you just know there are a mess of people who would read that and say, "Exactly! The Democrats *must be* hiding something!"

5. That's the difference between

journalists and today’s lazy stenographers. That’s really right, Chuck Todd. I’m looking right at you.
