First I want to give Jeff Flake a hand. A Senator from Arizona who got up and talked about 45 and his use of the word “treason”. 45 used that word at a speech the other night in Ohio like he was talking about many of the issues that have fallen within his narrow minded perspective. Throw it around here and there and I found it to be a bit morbid. Then Senator Flake gave his speech and it gets me thinking.
45 over the last year has been able to with the help of the GOP rework the Government system. I think if he could he would scrap the Constitution. He would replace it with something more to his liking. It does not matter what public opinion is. If, and when he leaves office ( I hope that would be today…please today ), he has his properties to go to. That is if he can make it past the Russia investigation.
As for this word treason and tossing it around the same as he used “Crooked Hillary” a million times. You better have rock solid evidence of any wrongdoing. Or you might be hearing that word at your impeachment hearings and subsequent court trial just before they send you to jail.

I think it was on with Brian Williams and Gene Robinson - that when he uses these words over and over, "collusion" and now "treason," that they cease to lose their meaning. So when they are directed at him, which they invariability will be, they just won't have any impact anymore.
