Editor:

When President Donald Trump called congressional Democrats “treasonous” for not applauding his State of the Union address, I decided to look up the legal definition of treason. To wit:

By Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that: “Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason.”

Sorry, Trump. The Democrats’ lack of adoration for your 80-minute propaganda fest doesn’t even come close to treason.
