Republicans Don't Dare Call It Treason

Article:

As more evidence emerges of the role played by former President Barack Hussein Obama in directing Russia-gate, President Donald J. Trump’s “allies” are leaving the field of battle. They seem not to want to hold Barack Hussein Obama responsible for what President Trump calls the “biggest political crime in American history, by far!”

First, Senator Lindsey Graham said he wouldn’t subpoena Obama to testify before his Judiciary Committee about Russia-gate. Then, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA,) stated that House Republicans have not made any criminal referrals for Obama or 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Obama former Vice President Joe Biden relating to Russia-gate. Finally, Attorney General William Barr said he did not expect criminal probes of either Obama or Biden in the matter.

This is all we need to know about whether top Republicans in the House and Senate, and an Attorney General nominated by Republican President Trump, are serious about getting to the bottom of Russia-gate. 

This is so despite the fact that progressive historian Eric Zuesse has written that Obama is in “severe legal jeopardy” because of his role in sabotaging the Trump Administration. He explains, “The biggest crime that a U.S. President can commit is to try to defeat American democracy (the Constitutional functioning of the U.S. Government) itself, either by working with foreign powers to take it over, or else by working internally within America to sabotage democracy for his or her own personal reasons.” In either case, he wrote, it’s treason.

“What we are watching is turning out to be traces of a plot against a government elected by the American people,” said Michael Hudson and Paul Craig Roberts about the role of various Obama officials in sabotaging the Trump Administration. They added, in a story that was published back in 2017, that, “Law requires Trump to arrest those responsible and to put them on trial for treason and conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States.”

Here we are three years later and Graham, Nunes, and now Barr have not done anything to hold Obama personally responsible. They have failed to provide Trump with the legal basis on which to accuse Obama and others with treasonous conduct. 

Left-wingers not beholden to the Democratic Party are willing to admit the obvious. Author Branko Marcetic called the targeting of Trump National Security Adviser Michael T. Flynn “a case of entrapment” and said the FBI “even used outright false claims to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page…” He concluded that the FBI and various US government agencies engaged in “prosecutorial overreach, entrapment, and the criminalization of foreign policy dissent” in the case of Russia-gate.

A real shocker, I tell ya.  Big surprise there.  The political elite don't want to upset the apple cart.  The meal ticket.    The font of their many "blessings."

This is all political calculation.

No one wants to be in front of the banner that declares the first black President as a Seditious Traitor (treason is a war time offense).

Too radioactive. . .

Politicians are cowards and Obama probably has dirt on all of them - so this really comes as no surprise whatsoever.

I also think that it’s more about the meal ticket side of things than anything else (all the insider trading and the like), but being the first black president adds an element that justifies their own greed and selfishness. 
 

Why is it so hard to find through and through honest politicians who won’t take a bribe? Who have a stiff backbone?

Just for reference, Article 3 section 3 of the Constitution (excerpt)

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 twoWitnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

So I doubt you would actually be able to get anyone in the Obama administration for treason. It’s a very specific definition.

But beyond that for any other potential crimes, what proof is there of a crime?  Is there strong enough proof to convince a jury in DC beyond a reasonable doubt of a crime?  If not, there’s nothing to proceed on, so why waste time and money?

Because its next to impossible to win any major office without a pile of cash.  Its even harder to stay in office without the money flowing.  Dontions.  PACs.  Even bringing home the bacon in terms of pork laden earmarks.  No one is immune either.  Ron Paul portrayed himself as the anti-government libertarian man of principle, yet he made damn sure that every single budget brought fat federal spending home to his district.

Unfortunately there's no way to fix it either.

A return to the foundations of the Constitution would be a good start. But you're speaking pragmatically, and unfortunately you're right. . .

Agreed. However, there was a crime. Leaking Flynn’s name was the crime. 
 

And I think someone will take the fall for it. Right now, all these cretins are sweatin it out hoping it’s not them. 
 

Personally, I would love for Brennan to be the fall guy. That evil bastard needs to be in jail more than any of them.  

Besides, he was to action guy. He is the one who interpreted the messages from Obama to do all this. 
 

Clapper, Comey, And Rice kept it all at arms length. Brennan is closest to the fire, IMO.
