Former Gov. William Weld: Trump Committed Treason, Pure And Simple, Cart Him Off To Save Us All [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Bill Weld, the former Massachusetts governor seeking to challenge President Trump in a GOP primary, said the president’s efforts to pressure Ukraine’s leadership into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden’s son amount to “treason pure and simple.”

“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere and control a U.S. election,” Weld said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It couldn’t be clearer. That’s not just undermining Democratic institutions. That is treason. It’s treason pure and simple.”

Weld said Trump should be removed from office for the offense, after noting that the penalty for treason is death. He suggested being removed from office would be “a pretty good alternative” for the president.
