WASHINGTON – Former Massachusetts Governor and Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld slammed President Donald Trump’s contacts with the government of Ukraine in a television interview on Monday morning, calling Trump’s actions “treason.”
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election. 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,” Weld said, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“The penalty under 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,” he added.

I’m not sure I saw it coming that a seasoned Republican would call for Trump’s execution before Nancy Pelosi called for his impeachment.

Yeah, @GovBillWeld needs to read Article III Section 3 of the constitution again. He’s just as wrong about this as @realDonaldTrump is when he accuses the press or Democrats of treason. https://t.co/dXpgFkmeyK pic.twitter.com/xIAuOq9gyY
