Sen. Mitt Romney is right when he referred to as a few of his fellow Republicans’ early reward of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine “virtually treasonous.” The 14th Modification to the Structure, Article 3, has a reputation for individuals who are giving “support or consolation” to the enemies thereof (the Structure) – they’re thought of a “incapacity.”

Trump falls into that class when he referred to as Putin “good” and “genius” concerning his invasion of the free and sovereign nation of Ukraine. Russian TV performed Trump’s message again and again to the Russian individuals as if Trump spoke for America and was lending assist, which he doesn’t.

A “incapacity” is by definition in Article 3 an individual who’s unfit to carry public workplace, whether or not elected or appointed ever, anyplace within the USA. Interval! See ya later Donnie!
