Proof is the issue. If anyone can come up with the true facts, it's Mueller. If I were Trump, I'd try to hire Comey back, not that he'd come and not that President Double-Down could ever do that. Remember that Nixon was also "Commander in Chief."
    Doesn't treason require two witnesses to the alleged treasonous act?

    It does, and, if the act were treason, there were more than two witnesses. As I said, "proof" is the problem...

    Remember we are talking about two different people with obstruction and treason and also "witness" does not mean that both have to be present at the same time or that they be eyewitnesses. There have been many books written on this and it can't be handled in a bulletin board thread. For starters, the terminology of the constitution comes straight from the British Treason Act of 1695, so, presumably, it means the same. Happy reading...
