Dear Editor:

Definition from Oxford Languages: Treason: The crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

U.S. Constitution: Article III, Section 3, Clause 1: 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.

“As the Cramer case makes plain, the overt act and the intent with which it is done are separate and distinct elements of the crime. Intent need not be proved by two witnesses but may be inferred from all the circumstances surrounding the overt act. For proof of treasonable intent in the doing of the overt act necessarily involves proof that the accused committed the overt act with the knowledge or understanding of its treasonable character.” –https://constitution.congress.gov/browse/essay/artIII_S3_C1_1_2/

The U.S. Constitution is the rule of law in this country. The “liberal justices” believe the Constitution is a “living breathing doctrine” and as such they pass legislation that goes against “the rule of law.” In other words they take it upon themselves to amend the Constitution.

Article V: Amendment Process: The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress.

In my opinion Senators King and Collins (along with every legislator that approved Justice Jackson) committed treason by knowingly putting in a justice that would subvert Article V of the Constitution.
