Traitor in the Oval Office

   New evidence has shown that Donald Trump committed treason, and even the far-right media can’t hide that.

   The definition of treason involves attempting to overthrow the government, which is shown in Donald Trump’s actions. While he didn’t directly try to overthrow the United States government, he attempted to overthrow the integrity of our government. 

   Some backstory: According to documents released by the White House, on July 25, 2019, Donald Trump held a phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky, asking him to conduct an investigation of political rival, Joe Biden, and Biden’s son. Essentially, asking him to conduct actions that could assist Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, also known as election interference.

   While Donald Trump has been making a long-winded, lackluster attempt to cover this incident up as a normal call, the evidence speaks for itself. This evidence comes in the form of a rough transcript of the call released by the White House and the complaint of an anonymous whistleblower.

   Early on in the call, Trump mentions a “favor” that he wants to ask of Ukraine. He goes on to mention Joe Biden’s son, and his involvement with the company Crowdstrike, asking President Zelensky to investigate him. It’s interesting how President Trump requests an investigation into the son of his most prominent opponent 16 months away from the 2020 presidential election.

   Even though Trump intended to use this call to get a leg ahead, it could be the straw that breaks the back of his presidency. Shortly after this transcript was released, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, stating that the Democrats now have the information they need to start impeachment proceedings.

   The only thing keeping this criminal in office is the partisan tendencies of the United States. If you ask any American point blank if they would support a criminal president, the large majority would likely say “no,” but with political parties in the equation, it becomes a little more complicated. People affiliated with a party tend to stand by those in their party through thick and thin, which is destroying our country’s political climate.

   While loyalty is important, supporting a treasonous president goes against all the values that our country stands for, and those who still support him are assisting in treason.
