Trump Calls Jack Smith "Treasonous" for Continuing Mar-a-Lago/Jan. 6 Inquiries

It was ridiculous (and blatantly wrong) for Trump to suggest, while he was president, that it was "treasonous" for anyone to investigate or criticize him.

It's even more ridiculous, now that he's a private citizen, for him to be making the same claims.

Treason, of course, is a federal crime, for which the penalty can be death. So Trump is essentially saying Smith (and any other investigator looking into his illicit actions) should be charged with a crime for doing so and possibly be killed over it, too. 

Via Raw Story:

In a late-night posting on his Truth Social platform, Donald Trump lashed out at special counsel Jack Smith for investigating him on multiple fronts and bizarrely claimed that he and his family and friends are on a "treasonous quest."

Said Trump on his fledgling social media experiment gone wrong Truth Social:

TRUMP Hating Special Prosecutor Jack Smith, whose family and friends are Big Time Haters also, will be working overtime on this treasonous quest. They are scoundrels and cheats. THIS IS ALL ABOUT ELECTION INTERFERENCE.

To be sure, most Americans are quite alright with these investigations carrying on. Most even believe Trump did something wrong.

Hopefully, he'll be held accountable for his wrongdoings, too.
