Harvard law prof: Trump’s Russian hack ‘jokes’ could ‘constitute treason’

Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe believes that Donald Trump’s recent comments regarding the DNC e-mail leak and a possible Russian connection may “constitute treason.”

Trump came under fire this week after appearing to suggest that Russia find and publish Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails which she had deleted from her personal server. Mr. Trump later declared his comments to be sarcastic.

    Of course Tribe was the professor that collaborated with Obama on the ludicrous, pretentious drivel of applying Einstein’s Relativity to the Constitution:

      But when the New York Times publishes classified information, citing the “public’s right to know”… information that puts undercover agents at direct risk of death, that’s just fine. The left is a fever swamp.

  • GrimmCreeper

    Hell, those were supposedly fat asss Clinton’s yoga routines. If there are any photos of her yoga poses it’s worse than treason.

      pigs in a sack would come to mind

    And leaking state secrets via email isn’t treason, Mr. Tribe (who was represented in the TV Series West Wing)?

  • At this point, Hillary Clinton’s very existence constitutes treason.

  • andycanuck

    Oddly enough, the professor has deep ties to the Democrats including Al Gore.

  • Who gives a rip what a leftist wack-job Harvard “law prof” thinks.

    I find it hard to believe their minds are open enough to actually imagine anything but leftist tripe.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Funny thing, but leftists like Tribe were for Russia until they were against it.

      They were for the Soviet Union which was communist, and now that it is dead and Russia isn’t communist their love disappeared pronto.

      • Remember the Frontpagemag article from 2008? I think it was linked at BCF or SDA. Top Secret documents from Soviet archives reveal some unsettling things about Joe Biden’s secret talks with the Soviets in 1979. In my mind Biden was worse than treasonous because people’s lives were at stake:

        “…There was more to it than simply the betrayal of dissidents; for this involved the question of the Senators’ own independence. Indeed, they should have known that every Soviet official who dealt with high-ranking foreigners would see them not as partners, but as potential targets for recruitment, potential
        collaborators or fellow-travelers. On such occasions, the Soviets always searched for a way to corrupt you. The worst thing you could do was to show the enemy that you depend on him in any way. For any Western politician, telling the Soviets that his public image depends on their good will was the first step to becoming an agent of influence, de facto if not de jure…”

          When I think of the subject of treason concerning our neighbour to the south, for some reason the first image that pops into my mind is Hanoi Jane. Now I know she wasn’t the first and far from the last, but the mind is funny that way.

    Larry the Lefty…paid to look the other way.

    I guess this Harvard prof isn’t smart enough to figure out that knowingly running the governments top secret business on insecure communications systems might be a problem.

    • El Martyachi

      They don’t give a shit about security beyond stamping out their ideological opponents.

      • El Martyachi

        … and, of course, their own personal security.

    no intent..you must acquit
    Dear Leader repudiates

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Not too far off the truth about Kerry.

        Lurch don’t get no respec.
        You would think his smart Jewish antecedents plus Plymouth Rock Forbesbears would count for something. All that marry money too.

  • robins111

    Hey Prof. I heard he jay walked when he was 15. Thats gotta be proof of treason, racism, and an ingrown toenail

  • ntt1

    The perfesser should change his name to tripe. He confirms the worst suspicions about academics and the intelligence supposedly required to get a plum job on the taxpayers tit.

  • ghost of benghazi

    Having a illegal server that gets hacked is okay. But no jokes. Progressives are a bunch of dogs at the park smelling each others backside.

  • Alain

    You just cannot make up such crap. Soon to be eight years of numerous cases of real treason committed by this administration, and this wacko comes out with this.

    • WalterBannon

      he feels the need to prove everyone commits treason, so what does it really matter???

  • Dave

    And to think Harvard WAS once an institution that was thought of in high regard. My, how the mighty have fallen. (aka- the inmates are running the asylum)

    Tribe still stoops to deal with the minutiae of a small unimportant planet like earth ?. Obama’s “Socrates” ?
    What a great guy.

  • FactsWillOut

    Gun control IS treason.

  • El Martyachi

    … funny how that works.

  • WalterBannon

    Harvard Useful Idiot Laurence Tribe believes that his ass is a good place for his head

    • Now that’s funny. But be careful because apparently humour can be treason (unless you are Barack or Hillary of course). In Canada even professional comedians have been prosecuted by HRC (Human Rights Commission).
