Weld and Maryanne Whats-her-name should form their own ticket and fade into obscurity together!
Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld accused President Donald Trump of treason for repeatedly urging the Ukrainian president to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son — and said the death sentence was “the only penalty.”
Weld made the astonishing remarks during a joint MSNBC interview on “Morning Joe” alongside Joe Walsh and Mark Sanford, both former congressmen are also mounting longshot presidential bids to wrest the GOP nomination away from Trump.
“That’s not just undermining democratic institutions. That is treason. It’s treason pure and simple………. And the penalty for treason under the US code is death. That’s the only penalty.”Bill Weld

The former Massachusetts governor went on: “The penalty under the Constitution is removal from office and that might look like a pretty good alternative for the president if he could work out a plea deal.”
He later doubled down on impeaching Trump, blasting him as “a lawless man” and said he had met the threshold of “high crimes and misdemeanors” that’s mandated under the constitution.
