Fighting Words



From (my former) Congressman Hakeem Jeffries's mailing list:

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08), a member of  House Democratic leadership and the Congressional Black Caucus, took to the House floor today to blast President Trump and his associates for their apparent willlingness to sell out our country to Putin's Russia.
He said, in part:
“Treason is not a laughing matter.  It is a serious crime embedded in the constitution, punishable by death.  But since your commander-in-chief chose to raise it at a political rally, let's have a discussion about treason.  Is it treason for a presidential campaign to meet with a hostile foreign power to sell out our democracy and rig the election?  Is it treason for your former national security advisor to be a Russian asset sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin?  How dare you lecture us about treason?”

More like this, please. But it brings up the question of what the consequences should be... if the election was rigged, what should happen? We need the Democrats to say it out loud.
