Pentagon Report Lays Out Why Trump Should Be Charged With Treason For The Jan. 6 Attack

In the midst of the horrific mayhem that was taking place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Vice President Mike Pence telephoned the acting defense secretary and told him:

“Clear the Capitol.”

According to a leaked Pentagon document, the timeline of what transpired next makes it clear that Pence’s order was overruled, and could only have been countermanded by one man: President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press (AP) obtained the Pentagon document which lays out a very clear and damning timeline:

“But order would not be restored for hours.

“These new details about the deadly riot are contained in a previously undisclosed document prepared by the Pentagon for internal use that was obtained by The Associated Press and vetted by current and former government officials.

“The timeline adds another layer of understanding about the state of fear and panic while the insurrection played out, and lays bare the inaction by then-President Donald Trump and how that void contributed to a slowed response by the military and law enforcement. It shows that the intelligence missteps, tactical errors and bureaucratic delays were eclipsed by the government’s failure to comprehend the scale and intensity of a violent uprising by its own citizens.”

The inaction of Donald Trump. Just as he failed to control the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump also failed to protect everyone in the Capitol on that fateful day. That alone is a form of treason, because it violates the very oath of office a president takes when inaugurated while one of his hands is raised and other rests on a Bible.

As Trump dithered and encouraged the insurrectionists with his silence, Pentagon officials — along with White House aides, Congressional leaders, and Mike Pence — tried to manage the crisis from a secure underground facility. Trump never once called them or checked to see how they were doing. He abdicated his role as leader of the county and allowed a deadly riot to continue.

Some have suggested that Trump should be charged with sedition for stirring up the crowd that attacked the Capitol, but treason is a more fitting charge.

 

Here’s the difference between sedition and treason:

“While seditious conspiracy is generally defined as conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state, treason is the more serious offense of actively levying war against the United States or giving aid to its enemies.”

Donald Trump gave aid to domestic terrorists who were attacking Congress. If that’s not treason, then what in the hell is?

Pentagon Claims Vladimir Putin Has Asperger’s

Perhaps we have always known that there was something–shall we say–a bit different about Russian President Vladimir Putin. Some have said he appears to have no soul or even feelings of any kind. But in 2001, former President George W. Bush said:

“I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul. He’s a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country and I appreciate very much the frank dialogue and that’s the beginning of a very constructive relationship.”

Well, obviously, Dubya was the not the best judge of a man’s character. Afterall, this is the guy who put Dick Cheney (aka Dr. Evil) a heartbeat away from being the man with the codes to our nuclear weapons.

The Pentagon, however, had its own opinions on why Putin acts the way he does, and in 2008 they determined the Russian President:

“…has Asperger’s syndrome, an autistic disorder which affects all of his decisions.”

This conclusion, made by a Pentagon think tank and issued in a report, also speculated that:

“(Putin’s) neurological development was significantly interrupted in infancy.”

As a result of having Asperger’s syndrome, the Pentagon concluded Putin used an authoritarian style of governance and was obsessed with “complete control” as a way of compensating for the condition.

Asperger’s is a developmental disorder which affects how a person perceives and communicates with the world. Famous individuals with Asperger’s include comedian Dan Ackroyd, singer Susan Boyle, and actress Daryl Hannah. Albert Einstein is also believed to have had Asperger’s syndrome.

While it’s impossible to know if Putin does indeed have Asperger’s without performing a brain scan on him, one thing seems pretty certain: you cannot hope to take the full measure of a man just by looking into his eyes.
