The House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday on the legal and constitutional framework for impeaching President Donald Trump includes a discussion of the most serious crime listed in the Constitution: treason.

Citing the constitutional provision that impeachment applies to “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the report hints throughout that President Trump might have committed treason against the United States.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Constitution specifically defines treason in Article III, Section 3: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

However, the report expands the definition to include “betrayal,” and states: “Although the Framers did not intend impeachment for good faith disagreements on matters of diplomacy, they were explicit that betrayal of the Nation through schemes with foreign powers justified that remedy.”

In the report, Democrats allege the President engaged in a “quid pro quo” with the Ukrainian government, trading U.S. military aid in exchange for an investigation into a political opponent.

As of today, there is no direct evidence that proves the Democrat’s claim. Out of all the witnesses that have testified in front of Congress, Gordon Sondland was the only fact witness that had first hand knowledge from speaking with the President on the matter. He testified the President wanted “no quid pro quo”.
