Video: Republican Primary Contender Suggests Trump Should Be Sentenced To Death Over Ukraine Phone Call
The former Governor of Massachuttes and Republican 2020 primary contender made an appearance on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC Monday. The Republican rhino gave his two sense to the report about the President’s phone call asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former VP Biden’s son Hunter, business dealings.
Weld started off saying “it couldn’t be clearer” that President Trump committed “treason pure and simple” because Biden is a Democrat candidate for president.
“Well, obviously, canceling primaries undermines democratic institutions and democratic elections, but that’s far from the deepest high crime the president has committed here,” Weld told host Joe Scarborough. “He’s now acknowledged that in a single phone call right after he suspended $250 million of military aid to Ukraine, he called up the president of Ukraine and pressed him eight times to investigate Joe Biden, who the president thinks is going to be running against him.”
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election,” he continued. “It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions — 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. The penalty on the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he could work out a plea deal.”
You gotta be kidding me!! Really that to me sounds like a threat on the President’s life and I think the former governor needs a visit from the secret service. These rhinos complain that the rhetoric of the President is vicious and harmful and then this guy goes on TV and infers the President should be tried for treason and sentenced to death. Give me a break! The Republican Party should not allow this man to run in the primary and be thrown out of the party.
