In another hysterical left wing reaction to the “Russia” scandal Virginia Democrat Senator and former candidate for Vice President Tim Kaine has accused Donald Trump Jr. of treason. This is based on an apparent meeting the Trump Jr. had with a Russian lawyer prior to the election. The lawyer claims no connection to the Russian government, but there is some indication that the younger Trump thought she might have information damaging to Hillary Clinton.
It turns out that she had no such information, and while the meeting might have been ill advised, there was absolutely nothing illegal about it. Kaine’s claim that it constitutes treason shows his unwillingness to even read and understand the Constitution. Treason is narrowly defined as waging war against the United States or providing aid and comfort to the enemy. That obviously has not occurred.
