But the most amazing sign is the elevation of former CIA boss John Brennan to hero status. He's publicly and repeatedly accused President Trump of treason in dealing with the Russians. Treason is a capital crime, a death penalty offense, yet Mr. Brennan offers no proof. President Trump stripped Mr. Brennan of his security clearance, a perk used in Washington to financial advantage, and this has been characterized by many in the Democratic Media Complex as an attempt to silence Mr. Brennan. That's demonstrably untrue. Mr. Brennan hasn't been silenced, only magnified. Mr. Trump relishes this kind of thing. Mr. Trump eagerly drags Mr. Brennan into the mud pits.
