Trump's actions amount to treason

Trump's actions amount to treason

In his apparent attempt to become the first U.S. dictator, President Donald Trump has attacked federal law enforcement in a blatant attempt to discredit mounting criminal evidence against him and his associates.

Since the campaign, he has tried to diminish and dismantle the press, as Vladimir Putin did in Russia.

Meanwhile, Fox News continues to spew propaganda and misinformation upon millions of gullible viewers, who lap it up, like Jonestown Kool-Aid.

Forget that Trump is an admitted sexual predator. Forget his racist policies. Forget that he has admitted on tape that the wall is a sham, and focus on one thing.

Every U.S. intelligence agency has concluded that Russia attacked us, in the form of tampering with, and affecting the outcome of, elections here and around the world in an attempt to cripple democratic governments, and will continue to do so in the future.

Not only has Trump done nothing to fight against this attack on our country, he refuses to even acknowledge what is obvious to most non-Fox-viewing Americans.

This is an act of treason, screaming for impeachment. Any elected representative, Republican or Democrat, who refuses to vote to impeach is complicit in this act of treason and should be charged and removed from office.

Email Congressman Rodney Davis (or your U.S. representative) and insist he vote to impeach. Continue to email every single day until this happens.
