“In a premature celebration of Chuck Hagel's nomination being voted out of committee, North Korea tested a nuclear weapon last night.”— William Kristol, editor of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine, in a blog post Tuesday.
Perhaps Kristol would like to have Kim Jong-il as a witness at the Committee's trial?
US Constitution, Article III:
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
I don't know -- could the whole committee be tried for treason, i.e. giving Aid and Comfort?
