TreasonSubmitted by TommyPaine on Tue, 05/21/2013 - 23:43
The word is thrown around a lot, but what acts "officially" constitute treason? The answer can be found at 18 USC 2381:
"Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."
If it is true that Barry & Hillary were running weapons to al Qaeda forces from Libya to Syria, and Ambassador Stevens was the guy making the deals, and former CIA Director Petreaus was sacked because he would not go along with the false story, then Barry & Hillary could face the death penalty. Maybe this is the reason for all the distractions away from Benghazi specifics.
On a side note: Notice how the definition says "... to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies..." Just an interesting observation about the language of that particular statute.
