Obama Guilty of Treason?

The Constitution provides:

“Section 3. Cl. 1. 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.”

“By withholding information and misleading Congress, Obama has given aid and comfort to America’s enemies. That’s impeachable.” See Congress Must Hold Obama Accountable for His Deception Over Iran

Here are the lowlights of Obama’s Iran deal: (From https://www.conservativereview.com/Commentary/2015/09/a-conservative-guide-to-the-iran-deal#sthash.wS5gnNlU.dpuf)

What’s Wrong with the Deal?

Andrew McCarthy of National Review sums up: “By lying and withholding information about the agreement, he gives aid and comfort to America’s enemy.” Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/421600/obama-deserves-impeachment-iran

“For years, conservatives have worried President Obama would do anything necessary to secure a deal with Iran. Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has kept a close eye on the negotiations and has sounded the alarm on this historically bad deal even before the start of the 114th Congress. Horowitz list the main problems with this deal?

  • $700 Million to Fund Terror Abroad
    Even before a deal was reached, President Obama agreed to lift some sanctions on Iran to keep them at the negotiating table. The result of this capitulation? Seven hundred million in new income Iran can now use to fund its murderous agenda in the Middle East and around the world.
  • $50 Billion Signing Bonus
    The administration has already agreed to give Iran another $50 billion in frozen assets. Like the $700 million Iran already has access too, this money will most certainly be used to support terrorist organizations in the Middle East.
  • Iran Gets to Keep Its Existing Nuclear Infrastructure
    Under the terms of the agreement, Iran could keep its facilities at Natanz, Fordow, Isfahan, and Arak in operation. Even the underground facility at Ferdo would be allowed to keep its 1,000 centrifuges. Ironically it was President Obama himself who said in 2012 “we know they don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordo in order to have a peaceful program.” The heavy-water reactor at Arak would also D.
  • Self-Inspections
    In mid-August 2015, reports emerged that Iran would be allowed to conduct its own inspections of suspected Iranian nuclear sites. Part of a side agreement the Obama administration previously failed to disclose to Congress, the International Atomic Energy Association (IAEA) would be prohibited from sending its own inspectors to the secret military nuclear facility at the Parchin site. How can the international community trust a rogue nation to police itself when it has vowed to wipe Israel off the map?
  • Existing Stockpiles of Enriched Uranium Go to Pro-Iran Russia
    Iran would be forced to surrender any uranium it has already enriched. The uranium, however, would go to Russia, one of Iran’s most loyal supporters on the international stage.
  • Iran Can Keep Its Ballistic Missile Program
    Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon is one challenge. Failing to prevent the country from developing ballistic weapons will only magnify that threat. Under the terms of the agreement, Iran would not be required to halt any part of its research or development on these long-range weapons.
  • No Protections for Israel’s Security and Right to Exist
    For years, we have heard Iran’s leaders speak of their desire to destroy the Jewish state and exterminate the Jewish people. Yet, the agreement does not require Iran to stop supporting terrorist organizations in the Middle East such as Hezbollah and Hamas which have also declared their intentions to wage war on the Jewish state. President Obama even rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request that Iran recognize Israel’s right to exist as a free nation.
  • Pathway to a Nuclear Bomb
    Even if Iran does not cheat, this agreement paves the way for the rogue regime to acquire a nuclear weapon. The President himself told NPR Iran would have a zero breakout time from a bomb upon expiration of the deal.
  • No Mention of Iranian Naval Harassment
    President Obama refused to condemn Iran’s long history of harassing American commercial vessels, naval ships, or aircraft. And even after Iran forced a Marshall Islands-flagged ship into one of its ports, the administration was silent; further emboldening the Iranians.”

It would take no leap of logic to conclude that therein lies a prima facie case of treason–that is, giving aid and comfort to the enemy which, as McCarthy says, is an impeachable offense.
