Bill Weld, mistakenly running as a Republican for President, has come out and accused President Trump of Treason. Why? For asking the President of Ukraine to investigate the Pay-to-Play scam between a Ukrainian oil company and the Biden family.
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election,” Weld said. “It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions. That is treason. It’s treason pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty. The penalty on the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he can work out a plea deal.”
But not the scheme involving Vice President Joe Biden. Who is on the record threatening to withhold a billion taxpayer dollars if that government doesn’t fire a prosecutor investigating his son. The one getting paid by the Ukrainian company in whose business he has no experience.
A gig Hunter Biden and his company got after a Joe Biden visit to Ukraine.
But Bill doesn’t seem all that concerned about that. Neither do any other Democrats.
Whim With Weld
Weld is running because he bought into the Collusion and obstruction narratives created by Democrats. Both of which, on his terms is treason. They lied, and with the help of Biden’s Ukraine are still trying to overthrow the results of an American election. There are ties that bind, but no one who is running against Trump is interested.
I’m not clear on Bill’s position on aiding and abetting an effort to overturn the election of an elected President but if I had to guess it’s the Democrat position. Keep throwing things at the wall and hope something sticks. Then yell, Treason!
Sorry, I said ‘wall’ without issuing a trigger warning.
Weld also appears willing to abandon any impartial due process, not a great trait for an applicant for the job of Chief Executive. But he makes up for it with hyperbolic ranting, again barely discernable from the sounds on the Left. Filtered only through a set of parentheses with an “R” between them placed after his name.
Bill Weld (R – Orange Man Bad)
Hello Earned Media!
Which, if you are familiar with the playing field, will get him a lot of time on TV (which he needs). They all yell treason too, but none of those people or their viewers will ever vote for Bill Weld. Like everyone else, they just use him to get what they want, which is not Bill Weld.
They just want to hear a “republican” (wink-wink) screaming about Treason and invoking the death penalty, which will get you a lot of attention. Hey, I’m writing a blog about it. But I’m also mocking him mercilessly. Wondering how much money the Never-Trumpers are willing to burn on his pointless campaign.
Sorry, that’s right. He’s not running to win. Weld is running to help Democrats craft narratives, so they’ll win.
And people wonder why I give Bill Weld a hard time.
Or, maybe they don’t wonder.
