America’s new president-elect has turned heads and dropped jaws throughout the entire campaigning process, and despite him receiving nearly 3 million less votes than Hillary Clinton, he has managed to “win” the election. Since that time, Donald Trump has done nothing but prove his ineptitude to complete his new duties without getting us all killed.
A couple days ago, the CIA released information about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election, and since then, Trump has spoken out against the government systems that ensure we have checks and balances that help create the democracy America has been going for these past few centuries.
This has Democrats and Republicans alike furious about the behavior of our newly “elected” leader, and now, the Democratic Coalition has announced via Twitter that Democrats will be filing charges of treason against Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, Mitch McConnell, and FBI director, James Comey.

In case you were wondering exactly who the Democratic Coalition is, here is their mission statement:
“The Democratic Coalition Against Trump (DCAT) is an arm of Keep America Great PAC. The coalition formed in the Spring of 2016, with the main goal of making sure that Donald Trump never became President. DCAT now exists to hold the Trump White House accountable, and is directly countering Donald Trump, along with Republican elected officials and candidates who support him, through aggressive digital and traditional advertising, grassroots action, in-depth opposition research, and a nationwide rapid-response team.”
Senator Harry Reid had this to say about FBI director, James Comey:
“The FBI had this material for a long time but Comey, who is of course a Republican, refused to divulge specific information about Russia and the presidential election. Everyone should know WikiLeaks was involved from the very beginning. They leaked the information as if it was run by one of the great political operatives in America when in fact it was run by the political operatives in Russia. Russia has a pretty good way of cheating. Look at what they did with athletes.”
“I am so disappointed in Comey. He has let the country down for partisan purposes and that’s why I call him the new J Edgar Hoover, because I believe that calling for the director’s resignation.”
Senator Chuck Schumer says that more must be done to stop Donald Trump from destroying an entire nation in a matter of months. He said:
“‘Congress’s national security committees have worked diligently to address the complex challenge of cybersecurity, but recent events show that more must be done,’” said Sens. Chuck Schumer, the incoming Senate Democratic leader, Sen. John McCain, the Armed Services Committee chairman, fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Sen. Jack Reed, the top Armed Services Committee Democrat, in a Sunday morning statement.”
“While protecting classified material, we have an obligation to inform the public about recent cyberattacks that have cut to the heart of our free society. Democrats and Republicans must work together, and across the jurisdictional lines of the Congress, to examine these recent incidents thoroughly and devise comprehensive solutions to deter and defend against further cyber-attacks.”
