    Did the GOP Senators commit a Treason act against Obama and the Country?

    Things are being done in the House and Senate that's never been done before now. Should the Senators that sent the letter to Iran, be punished for this acted against Obama, and the country?

    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

    Seriously. This is the dumbest thing I have seen the GOP do yet. But I am prepared to see them top this one. Full steam ahead.

    Some fairly sharp legal minds signed that letter, and I sincerely doubt they would hang themselves and their colleagues out to dry for mere political theater. It was a low-brow maneuver from a political standpoint, but it's neither unprecedented nor illegal.

    Senators and Congressmen act in the best interest of the people they represent (theoretically). They do not have to act in Obama's best interest, not are they subservient to the executive branch.

    I am aware of no section of the United States code that makes it a crime to act against Obama.

    What they did was not illegal so no they will not be punished for it

    They will get their punishment, and/or rewards, in future elections.

    I was pretty offended until I actually read the letter. Explaining the treaty process is little more than a Jr. High School Civics lesson.
