Richard Van Steen: Trump is a traitor

Trump took an oath of office to protect and defend the United States and the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Trump is a traitor and must be impeached for treason before he destroys our country and turns us into a vassal to Putin and Russia. And if Trump’s spineless Republican henchmen in the Senate and House (and at large in the Republican party) continue to put party before country and support Trump and defend his actions concerning acts and threats to our democracy, let’s not hesitate to call them traitors too, because they are supporting and defending traitorous actions by Trump.
