Trump campaign runs misleading anti-impeachment Facebook ads

Source: ABC News

The Trump campaign is flooding Facebook with anti-impeachment ads that misleadingly imply House Democrats are pushing "treason" allegations against President Donald Trump in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

The ads, which started running on the social media site Thursday, ask for donations and float the word "treason" in two different ways. One set of ads implies Democrats are making "treason" allegations against the president, while other ads could be interpreted as the campaign claiming Democrats pushing impeachment are treasonous—a loaded word the president himself has used against his critics.

"TREASON? First, the Left cried Quid Pro Quo, then bribery, and now TREASON? This entire HOAX has been JERRY-RIGGED by the Radical Democrats and we cannot put up with it any longer," one ad reads. The ad appears to be referencing House Democrats evolving impeachment argument against the president, which has at times both focused on quid pro quo and bribery allegations.

In a video posted with the campaign Facebook ads, President Trump calls impeachment a "coup" by Democrats who are "going after me because I'm fighting for you."

10. funny thing is- they should. i noticed in the hearing

that they laid out that bribery as defined now, in statute, is not the same as the crime of bribery at the time it was written, and his conduct clearly fits what was the crime of bribery as defined then.
but i kept hoping someone would ask about treason. it is similarly very narrowly defined now, but i would bet money that the legal standards in the founder's day would have allowed any such loopholes for this conduct.

so, he should be impeached for treason, and the sob is lucky no one is talking about that.

12. I'm on FB a fair amount. I have not seen any

So their targetting is good. They know better than to push it at me.
However I have not seen any of my T-challenged friends share it yet either.
That may be coming. (?)
