Are Trump and his Congressional Sycophants Traitors?

Trump may deny collusion. But given that this the attack continues, denying it is collusion, distracting from it is collusion, obstructing the investigation of it is collusion — because all these things enable it to go on.

That the president is abetted in his aid for the Russians — again, in the midst of this ongoing attack — by the leadership of the Republican Party makes the situation all the more extraordinary and dangerous. As they seek to undermine the investigation, they serve Russia as directly as if they were officers of the GRU. Some now reportedly seek to impeach Rosenstein on trumped up charges. To attack one of the leaders of our national defense as we are being attacked and to do so to benefit our foreign adversary is textbook treason.

That is strong language. But consider this: If we updated our definitions of war to include cyberwar, then aiding a foreign power engaged in such a war against us would certainly meet the Constitutional definition: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Isn't it amazing that the Dotard and his GOP minions, who go out of their way to wrap themselves in the flag and patriotism, are actually traitors if one believes that the definition of war in the 21st century includes cyberwarfare?

At stake are the results in our 2018 and 2020 elections and the integrity of our political system. This enemy seeks not only to put puppets or weak or deficient leaders in place, it seeks to gain leverage over them as they come to realize they are advertently or not the beneficiaries of the Russian attacks.

Lunacy, but such is par for the course on the left these days.

So, the left wanted to try terrorists in court for the crime of terrorism, hated calling terrorists acts part of the "the war on terror", hated calling terrorists enemy combatants, and wanted to paint them all as lone or rogue actors. For foreign states that practice terror, or support it financially, or when they harrass our warships or take sailors captive, the left didn't want to pick a fight or make war with those countries. With countries like that, we sign nuclear agreements and pay them billions of dollars.

On the other hand, hacking is a crime. It has always been treated as a crime. But since Russia is doing it and its important to maintain the narrative of "collusion" where none exists, some of the left are apparently ready to call it "cyber war" and start at least the next Cold War or possibly a shooting war over it.

Yet, not one election system was hacked, not one vote was changed. One President stated that hacking an election was not possible, but the left wants to forget all about that now that the 2016 election is over.

Sheesh....

Whell welcomes the Russian hacking with open arms. Why am I not surprised?

As always, you're woefully uninformed. Even your Dear Leader and his DoD agree with me as to the importance of cyberwarfare. Try to keep up.

WASHINGTON -- At the direction of the president, the Defense Department today initiated the process to elevate U.S. Cyber Command to a unified combatant command.

"This new unified combatant command will strengthen our cyberspace operations and create more opportunities to improve our nation’s defense," President Donald J. Trump said in a written statement.


https://www.defense.gov/News/Article...atant-command/

This is an elevation of status of the Cybercom, established within DoD in 2009 to "match and exceed enemies seeking to use the cyber realm to attack the United States and its allies."

The only issue is whether or not the Russian attack on our electoral system (carried out by 13 Russian military officers) is an act of cyberwarfare, defined as "the use of computer technology to disrupt the activities of a state or organization, especially the deliberate attacking of information systems for strategic or military purposes." I (and Mueller) contend that this was an attack by the Russian military in support of Putin's strategic interests. Do you disagree?

The Lying Dotard is the Commander-in-Chief of this and all other agencies tasked to defend against enemy cyberattacks. Are you OK with the Commander-in-Chief denying, obfuscating and trying to obstruct investigations into it? If so, you're a traitor just like he is.

This is why it was so vital for the retraitors to gain control of the Supreme Court. The court can block the update of the definition of war to include cyber attacks.

HELSINKI — President Trump said in a new interview airing Sunday that he hadn’t thought of pressing Russian President Vladimir Putin on extraditing the dozen Russian officials charged with hacking Democratic emails, while continuing to blame Democrats for the stolen emails that upended the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump says that the EU is our foe.

"I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe..."
