In my lifetime – I’ve seen THREE republican Administrations installed by colluding with foreign – ‘enemy’- governments.
Nixon’s campaign colluded with the North Vietnamese to stall the peace talks in order to boost his numbers prior to the election. When LBJ found out about it, he called it treason – and famously did NOT call out Nixon because he didn’t want to disrupt the civil transfer of power. He was also concerned that the METHOD they used to discover the treasonous talks (FBI wiretaps) would damage the Dems. Talk of treason was kept quiet.
Reagan’s campaign colluded with Iran to hold on to American hostages until after the election. This stopped any chance of what Reagan’s campaign called ‘an October surprise’ of a successful hostage release that would boost Carter’s re-election chances. It was only occasionally called treason by those who care enough to know.
Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to coordinate the release of stolen emails to stall any momentum that H. Clinton’s campaign had going into the final stretch. They also colluded with Wikileaks to aid the Russian propaganda campaign against her. Obama backed off proclaiming these acts as collusion – for fear of ‘disrupting the election’ – He was basically strong-armed by McConnell.
The fact that it amounts to treason is currently being covered up by Trump’s hand-picked AG.
Three Republican presidencies. – In my lifetime. – Installed by treason.
North Vietnam, Iran and Russia. What do these three countries have in common? The Republican Party. They coordinated against our nation’s interests with the governments of North Vietnam, Iran, and Russia.
That specific track record should be enough to doom the Republican party forever. They should NEVER be allowed to cloak themselves in the flag and call themselves ‘Patriots’. But they do.
None dare call it treason.
But by God they should.
