Donald Jr. and the Legal Standard for Treason

July 14, 2017

Episode Notes:

Did Donald Trump Jr. commit treason by meeting, during the campaign, with Russians represented to him as agents of the Kremlin? Many Democrats and even President George W. Bush's former ethics lawyer seem to think so. But Mark Zaid, a DC-based national security attorney and friend of WOTR, insists that Trump the Younger's actions, no matter how terrible they were, do not meet the standard for treason. And, he insists, it is really really important we get that right. Listen for yourself.
