I am all for impeachment but I am also a realist. Impeachment has been so politicized that it lost its edge as a legal tool. Also, what is being used to back up present calls for impeachment is in the eyes of many Americans based on polls - a necessity of the times and thereby have political implications and some wiggle room.
We do not want the impeachment process to drag and end up with the likely slap on the wrist; we want the criminals, all of them, out of office and in jail.
Is there such a crime, so clearly apolitical, so clearly in violation of the legal code that would allow a meter maid in Washington, DC, to walk into the White House and march those guys to jail? The good news/bad news is, yes it exist.
The following are the two codes that were violated and the crime associated with each will follow:
The two U.S. Codes are the following: U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115
§ 2381. Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
And § 2382. Misprision of Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.
The following is the count as I have conveyed it to five Federal Judges in the state of Connecticut:
"...,it is my duty to inform you..., of two counts of treason perpetrated by individuals high in the U.S. government. Such acts were done with premeditation.
The original crimes took place in New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001; the attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, the downing of a civilian airplane respectively. There is no need to name the victims individually; there were close of 3,000 deaths not to mention the other loses. The crimes I am reporting relate to how the U.S. government dealt with the criminal responsible for the original crime.
The criminal believed to be behind the crime, even though not indicted for those specific crimes by the Federal Government, is Osama Bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda organization.
In response to the 9/11 attacks, the Federal government launched military actions against Afghanistan since its rulers, the Taleban, harbored the alleged criminal. The Taleban, by harboring Bin Laden, were determined to have aided and abetted the alleged criminal.
During those military actions in Afghanistan, more Americans and innocent Afghanis lost their lives; they could also be considered victims of the crimes I am reporting.
The crime from a Federal perspective is perfectly defined by U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115, § 2381. Treason
