A far-left wing professor at Harvard University is now accusing Tucker Carlson and what he calls the ‘Trump’ wing of the GOP of treason for daring to oppose U.S. involvement in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia.
As The Daily Wire reports:
A left-wing Harvard Law professor drew fierce criticism for suggesting that Fox News host Tucker Carlson and the “Trump wing” of the Republican Party could be considered as backing Russian President Vladimir Putin and committing treason for their remarks opposing the U.S. intervening in the conflict in Ukraine.
“Led by Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, the GOP’s Trump wing appears to be throwing its weight behind Putin. If Putin opts to wage war on our ally, Ukraine, such ‘aid and comfort’ to an ‘enemy’ would appear to become ‘treason’ as defined by Article III of the U.S. Constitution,” Laurence Tribe wrote early Monday morning in a now-deleted tweet.
Tribe’s tweet was aimed specifically at Carlson, who has dedicated multiple opening monologues to the issue of Russia and Ukraine, expressing his opposition to U.S. intervention in the conflict and prioritizing the problems at the U.S.-Mexico border over the Ukraine-Russia border.
Legal experts and Twitter users quickly pointed out that Tribe had gone too far, and that there was not a Constitutional argument to bring treason charges against Carlson or others.
Tucker has been one of the lone voices on the Right to oppose pro-Ukrainian intervention.
