12. Treachery

The difference between treason and treachery is that:

- treason is the crime of betraying one's own country while engaged in a declared war (as defined by the Constitution);

- treachery is deliberate, often calculated, disregard for trust (violating the Oath of Office and endangering national security by giving away possible opportunities to foreign powers to blackmail).

14. What could totally screw this up for us

Would be if some Ukraine Trump pal, actually either found something, even if just small, something that is mildly illegal or unethical, on the part of Biden or his son. Even if it was fake, it would be difficult to dispute if the alleged offence happened in the Ukraine, and the case was brought up by a Ukrainian Trump/Putin sycophant.

Obviously even IF Biden's son or Biden was officially accused of something wrong under Ukraine law, it would pale overwhelmingly against all the crimes, and election fraud Trump has committed since even before he was sworn in.

But to the RW media, something like that would be gold. They would spin it as "See?....Good thing our persistent President kept calling for an investigation, as now we can all see the Biden family corruption. And the Democratic corruption in a cover up. And now we must probe further into Hillary and Bill's connections." And the MSM will be running over each other to finally get some red meat on Democrats to even the horse race. And, like all Democratic blamed scandals, like the forged paper / Dan Rather Bush AWOL story, it would get headline attention for weeks on end.

Fox News, and maybe even other MSM would gloss over the fact that simply asking for an investigation is a felony, and would instead focus on the "explosive revelations" proving how its really Democrats that are the real criminals. They only have to placate enough loyal Republicans, who have been weened by RW media for decades about how evil Democrats are, to vote R again. And then, who knows how much more prepared they are behind the scenes with hackable machines, Putins and homegrown troll farms, suppression laws, gerrymandering, Crosscheck, etc etc...to win the electoral college again.

I don't want to be a debbie downer, but I just have to steel myself for something like that, because its happened so many times. I just pray to gawd that they are both clean as a whistle.
