Response to triron (Reply #128)

129. Yes. I saw it.

The Treason Clause refers to “enemies,” not foreign nations generally. And “enemy” has been the subject of over six hundred years of consistent judicial interpretation (the phrase goes back to the English Statute of Treasons of 1351). For a foreign nation to be an enemy, we must be in a state of declared or open war with that nation. There is no declared war against Russia, so the argument would have to be that the Russian attacks against us are evidence of a state of open war.

snip===================================================================================

There is no such thing as a “quasi-enemy” under American treason law. If Russia was an enemy in June 2016, it was an enemy for all purposes. That would mean that any provision of aid and comfort to Russia by any person owing allegiance to the United States was not just illegal, but treason, a capital crime.

Any person advising a Russian business, any lawyer representing Russian interests, any person registered as an agent for Russia, perhaps even someone doing an interview on Russian television— all would be equally guilty of treason. The suggestion is absurd, but that is the logical consequence of accepting Russia as an enemy under our treason law.
