"“And my mission and my goal is to make sure that he does not remain president of the United States of America,” Water said. "

Isn't that treason?



No.

She would have to wage war against the US or give it's enemies "aid and comfort".

I'm fine with them not respecting the president. I'd have trouble finding conservatives that respect Obama. No harm in that, people have opinions.

I also don't mind her thinking she's better than Trump supporters (no matter how reluctant). It flows both ways.

As for her goal, I think it's cute. Keep screeching

Tell me, when it comes to your interpretation of treason, what's the difference between waging a war against the US versus waging a war against the legitimately elected US President? IMO, they one in the same.

She made a declaration of war?

Can you prove that, please?

I think free speech is okay. It's not like she physically attacked the president.

Free speech is now considered an act or war by some.

Apparently, understanding the concept and legal definition is beyond the capacity of partisan snowflakes.

Sublimecraft: No - you inferred Maxine Waters would need to ("wage war against the US") in order to fulfill your criteria of treason - I asked what, in your opinion, is the difference between waging war against the US vs US President.

My interpretation is irrelevant, as is yours. There is a specific legal definition that must be adhered to in order to try/convict someone of treason.

Regardless, an act of war must be declared or she must be found to be aiding and harboring enemies of the state.

Can you provide her declaration of war or proof she is "aiding and harboring" enemies of the state?

This is the problem when words like treason or racism get tossed around as casually as they are nowadays. According to the US Code, treason requires war. Also according to the US Code, war is defined as armed conflict. Not hyperbole from a podium on the floor of the house.

Is she talking out of her ass? Absolutely. Is she advocating for the overthrow of the government? You could certainly argue it but I think she'd just claim hyperbole and you wouldn't get a conviction for it. But treason?

Not according to the US Code.

Exactly. She is being hyperbolic and talking out of her ass, but to claim it is treason is equal in hyperbole and "talking out of asses".

Democrats love being covered in mud. When everyone is as dirty and as pompous as Maxine the guilt just slides right off.

“Mr. Speaker, my position against this president and his administration is clear. I oppose this president. I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president,” Waters said during a nearly 9-minute speech. "




That Statement Alone is a Denouncement of Her Oath of Office . If She Really Feels that way , then She should Resign Immediately .

*shrug*

She is absolutely within her rights to not respect Trump. Heck, *I* don't fully respect Trump and I voted for the guy. But she is expected to respect her duty to work for the people in her district. If a law comes by that will benefit them, she should support it.

She's also welcome to work on making him a one term president. That's what opposition parties do.

Beyond that, she's just fear-mongering.

I don't respect her at all but she is not required to swear fealty to the president, honor or respect the president.
