Temperatures are rising with Democrats over President Trump’s refusal to surrender to Joe Biden and the media but instead challenging fishy results in several states through the courts.
One top Democrat has even invoked the irresponsible rhetoric that Trump’s insistence on a free and fair election is the equivalent of treason, a very serious charge as well as an escalation in a standoff that could soon get very ugly.
On Thursday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer who is Nancy Pelosi’s top lieutenant went there in remarks made to the virulently anti-Trump Washington Post by the so-called “moderate” who is just as fanatical as the rest of his authoritarian party.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) on Thursday said President Trump’s efforts to persuade Republican officials to reverse election results in key battleground states “borders on treason.”
“He is undermining the very essence of democracy, which is: You go to the poll, you vote and the people decide,” Hoyer told The Washington Post. “There’s no doubt that the people decided.”
“I think this borders on treason,” the Maryland Democrat added.
Hoyer’s comment came after a Thursday press conference by Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who repeated previous claims without providing evidence that Trump, rather than President-elect Joe Biden, won the election.
The Maryland Democrat’s frustration boiled over after a press conference by Trump’s legal team led by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and attorney Sidney Powell who unloaded on those who are trying to steal the election with both barrels.
Adding to the irresponsible and incendiary political climate is the repugnant and totally un-American suggestion by Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey who released a statement calling for President Trump and his supporters to be tried for “crimes against the United States,” bookmark this when matters turn violent if the POTUS previals.

In a statement released late Tuesday the recently re-elected congressman released a litany of examples he believes show that the president and his administration have “committed innumerable crimes against the United States.”
“He has endangered our national security. He ripped families apart. He poisoned the Census. He has personally profited from his office. He has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy. He was rightly impeached by the House of Representatives. He has engaged in treachery, in treason. He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation and if he had a shred of dignity he would resign today,” wrote Pascrell.
Pascrell also said that any attempt by Trump to use the president’s pardoning powers to aide his staff would be an “obstruction of justice” and the question surrounding his ability to self-pardon would be “illegal.”
The New Jersey congressman could not be reached to confirm whether or not other members of congress have said they support his measure, but Trump ally Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., condemned the move Thursday, calling it “disgusting.”
The stench of Dem-media hypocrisy is overwhelming with the double-standard applied to Trump versus Al Gore was treated during his own challenges of the 2020 election that made it to the Supreme Court until he conceded to George W. Bush after 36 days.
But times have changed as have the Democrats who no longer remotely resemble the party of John F. Kennedy but rather one that has embraced all of the traits of traditional European fascist and even communist regimes.
