Response to eggplant (Reply #9)

16. the Constitution does apply

The Constitution defines treason without referring to war. It leaves to Congress to declare the penalty for treason and Congress has only done so for situations involving hostilities governed by rules of war.

Trump has committed treason, as defined by the U.S. Constitution. We just don't seem to have a punishment declared for his brand of treason.
