Tweet from Rudy Giuliani.

"...Ukrainian official who gave falsified evidence to Dems was charged with a BRIBE..."

As I've said before I believe the Spygate charges will involve bribes not treason. Easier to charge a government official for a bribe than treason.

That's why I believe all the money laundering investigations are so important. The Trump DOJ is making the connections to the bribes for the DC Swamp.

If they can't quite connect the bribe there's always tax evasion charges.

Also any lobbyists involved will be charge with FARA violations.

I doubt there'll be any treason charges.

(1) So true, Alex. Charging them with treason is unnecessary and I would argue highly counter-productive too.

The goal I have at the forefront of my mind is for the outcome of all this in about 5-6 years' time to be transparency that allows for the education of voters so that they are way less likely to ever elect a traitor again.

Other benefits will also accrue, of course.

(2) IMHO:

No death sentences needed. No treason convictions. No indictment of a former POTUS - for the sake of the country, not the person. His true legacy of shame will be punishment enough.

(I explain why, in toot (1) above.)

Punishment is only one of the four pillars of corrective justice. Deterrence is at least as important.

@GodlessNZ @Alex_Graham I agree deterrence is important, but treason is punishable by death for the very reason that it is a deterrence
