Mike White’s premise; “If Senator McCain had the okay from Congress as a body, or the president through any means, then, he’s home-free.”
Checking this premise: Does the Constitution, as framed and adopted by the Founding Fathers, as representatives of their respective states and the sovereign citizens thereof, authorize Congress or any president to commit acts that meet their definition of “treason against the United States?”
No. It does not! Treason is treason: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. . . .” Art.III, §3, Cl.1, Constitution for the United States of America (Emphasis added)
Carrying the premise to its conclusion, IF Congress or the president sanctioned (as in “approved”) McCain’s blatantly treasonous actions, then, the consenting members of that Congress and/or that president are all guilty of treason right alongside McCain. And, if he should “hang for treason,” they must all “hang together!”
If, however, his actions have been truly independent of Congress and presidents (including any possible actions by the CIA or the DoD), then McCain must be charged by the DoJ, tried before the Judicial Branch, by original jurisdiction in the supreme Court—if such Exception is in place—and in accordance with Congressional Regulations (Art.III,§2,Cl.2). If found guilty, he must be sentenced to the appropriate punishment, as declared by Congress in accordance with Art.III,§3,Cl.2—if that be hanging, then so be it. . . .
