Treason is obviously in the eyes of the beholder

Former president Barack Obama’s CIA director John Brennan accused President Trump of outright treason after Trump’s remarks in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Brennan tweeted, “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to and exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.”

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but for a former CIA director like Brennan calling President Trump treasonous might seem a little like “the pot calling the kettle black.”
