Hillary Clinton said what the media wouldn’t by accusing Donald Trump of committing treason by giving aid and comfort to the adversaries of the United States of America.


Clinton said:

I don’t want to speculate, but here’s what we know, and I think it’s important for voters to hear this and weigh it in making their choice in November. We know that a lot of the rhetoric we’ve heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular ISIS, because they are looking to make this into a war against Islam rather than a war against jihadists, violent terrorists, people who number in the maybe tens of thousands, not but tens of millions.

They want to use that to recruit more fighters to their cause by turning it into a religious conflict. That’s why I’ve been very clear; we’re going after the bad guys and we’re going to get them, but we’re not going to go after an entire religion and give ISIS exactly what it’s wanting in order for them to enhance their position.

Secondly, we know that Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for recruitment of terrorists. We’ve heard that from former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who made it a very clear point when he said Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant for the terrorists. We also know from the former head of our Counterterrorism Center, Matt Olsen, that the kinds of rhetoric and language that Mr. Trump has used is giving aid and comfort to our adversaries.

That last phrase “aid and comfort to our adversaries” is almost a word for word quotation of the constitutional definition of treason. According to Article 3 Sec. 3 of the US Constitution, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Hillary Clinton didn’t come out and directly say that Trump is a traitor who has committed treason against the United States of America, but by referencing the constitutional definition of treason almost word for word, she made her point very clear.

One of the problems that Democrats have faced in the general election campaign is that many in the media has glossed over Trump’s behavior or handled him with kid gloves. As far as Hillary Clinton is concerned, the gloves are off, and she is calling out Trump’s behavior for exactly what it is.

With one week to go before the first presidential debate, Hillary Clinton went there, and the presidential election just got real.
