GOP presidential contender Bill Weld accused President Trump of committing treason and pointed out that the penalty for that offense is capital punishment.
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election, it couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions,” Weld said. “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.”
Tempering his words a bit, Weld said he thinks that Congress should work to remove Trump from office.
