Resistance leader and MSNBC contributor Scott Dworkin likes to throw around the word “treason” a lot. Remember when he called everyone who had used the hashtag #ReleaseTheMemo to encourage the release of Rep. Devin Nunes’ report on FISA court abuses “traitors”? He does that.
As Twitchy reported earlier, soon after the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, President Trump’s attorney John Dowd released a statement saying, “I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier.”
That sounds like treason to Dworkin. What doesn’t? We still don’t know.
Trump’s attorney John Dowd just said Rosenstein should end the Mueller probe. Dowd committed treason by saying it & he should be disbarred for it. He’s speaking for Trump—not himself—for Trump. Trump fired McCabe so Dowd could say this. They conspired to obstruct justice. RESIGN!

One minute after I posted this John Dowd said he’s speaking for himself, not Trump. Um, it doesn’t work that way. You’re not Trump’s attorney only when you feel like it. I guarantee the two of them conspired to fire McCabe, then say Rosenstein should end Mueller probe. https://t.co/0w70pSHOo7

Wow, the Scott Dworkin Guarantee of Conspiracy™. Of course, like we’ve said before, the Mueller probe is sacrosanct to these people — in the absence of anything else (like evidence of collusion), it’s all they really have as far as legitimate hope for Trump’s impeachment.
Trump did NOT fire McCabe. https://t.co/UgFZGaK5gW

Trump DID NOT FIRE MCCABE, Sessions did on the RECOMMENDATION of IG report and Office of Personnel. MCCABE LIED under Oath
You could at least TRY to tell the truth https://t.co/lc26NXr6HT

That simply means that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in on the conspiracy as well — and it was really clever of him to conspire with the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and have it recommend McCabe’s firing; that was some good cover to keep Trump’s fingerprints off of things.
This is your brain on TDS.
As a member of the press, Scott, you should resign. Your illness has gotten the best of you.

“Committed treason saying” Rosenstein should end the Mueller probe.

That’s….not how treason works. https://t.co/jyMLYIi33U

@funder needs to look up the definition of treason.
It doesn't mean what he thinks it means in any way, shape, or form. https://t.co/gcaMx3rhLk

You either don't have the slightest clue what treason entails or you're purposely misleading your audience. Neither is a good look. https://t.co/F24pdXXqRs

LMAO! Voicing an opinion is treason now.
This is what disconnected from reality looks like: https://t.co/3WSJkhBe7n

No, he didn’t “commit treason,” Scott. Words have meanings. https://t.co/ygY2wD2qOI

FFS, Treason. You do not understand the concept https://t.co/ltIUT6z3cI

A short list of things Scott doesn’t understand, including, without limitation: I) Treason; ii) grounds for discipline by the bar; iii) obstruction of justice. https://t.co/3jjQXYTEeD
