Trump suggests Schiff should be arrested for ’treason’

President Trump on Monday took to Twitter suggesting that Rep. Adam Schiff be arrested for ’treason’. ’Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine’, wrote Trump in a reference to remarks made by Schiff during a hearing by the House Intelligence Committee. Schiff said earlier his remarks parodied Trump’s comments.

I don't know how to feel. Yes, this behavior needs consequences, but I don't think it qualifies as treason. I'd put it as libel.

That is an overstep. Schiff is a political tool but he has not given aid or comfort to America's enemies or levied war against the USA in any literal sense. Metaphorically maybe but not literally so not treason.

while I agree Schiff was out of line I am pretty sure you have to betray the your country to the enemy in a war time scenario in order for it to be treason.
