(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.
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.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
