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.

    Wag the Dog is a 1997 American political satire black comedy film produced and directed by Barry Levinson and starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. The film centers on a spin doctor and a Hollywood producer who fabricate a war in Albania to distract voters from a presidential sex scandal.
    Anybody remember this? Of course a real fake war is much more dangerous. Room to expand into the real thing. convenient that this has come up before the 2022 election. Anything to short circuit the Conservative movement…ie to remove socialists from office and control.

  2. Constitutionalist Prof. Laurence Tribe is at it again. Those former students who knew him will attest to his far left-wing agenda. He can’t see the forest because of the trees. He can take any situation and turn it into his own case. Now he’s calling for treason claiming Fox News hosts are treasonists citing the Fourteenth Amendment.

  3. Larry Tribe and Howard Stern were simpatico 40 years ago. And if you know Howard Stern today, you’d say they still are.

  4. Sanctions, the world trembles under the biden lack of leadership, more than three dozen Congressional Republicans have written a letter demanding President Joe Biden submit to a cognitive test.The searing letter outlined their concerns about his fitness for office. Thirty-seven Republican lawmakers signed the letter, authored by former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson. Recent examples of 79-year-old Biden’s ‘mental decline,’ including forgetting names and numbers and his recent hot mic moments, are all cited in the letter. “The American people should have absolute confidence in their President. They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander-in-Chief,” the letter states.

  5. if anybody has committed treason it’s the democrats. the took the oath to up hold the constiution and all they do is go against it

  6. It is my understanding that Ukraine is NOT an ally of ours, nor are they part of NATO so they aren’t really an ally of anyone. My second thought to the comment of this professor is: were those who opposed our entering the Second World War — and there were many who were loud and strong — even though they had attacked our land committing treason? It seems to me that Tucker Carlson, as anyone in the US, has the right to express his/her opinion. That’s called freedom of speech, which at one point was honored in this country as sacrosanct because it is the very first amendment to our Constitution. The folks on the left of left think that things like freedom of speech are meant for them alone and anyone who disagrees with them needs to be shut up. C’mon man.

  7. What Democraps did to put Pedo Joe in the White Hiuse and what Obozo did to try and get Nukes to Iran are TREASON. This WILLFULLY IGNORANT LIBERAL MORON needs to read a dictionary to learn what the word TREASON means.

  8. If Conservatives are the problem, why does Putin always make these moves (Crimea, Georgia, now East Ukraine) when Leftist Dems are in charge?

  9. Sadly, this is what passes as a “college professor ” these days. Is it any wonder that we now have an entire generation of feckless, disengaged, young adults entering what used to be a world power economy. Expensive, influential diploma framed on the wall. Nearly devoid of ambition. Little to no direction.

  10. You always know what the communists err I mean democrats are guilty of when they claim the Republicans are guilty of something.

  11.  Laurence Tribe is simply another example of the stupidity prevalent in most Harvard instructors today.
    We must mind our own business and not interfere. This is not “partnering” with Putin, it is simply protecting our people from being subjected to another needless killing war and not wasting our tax funds on other nations. Americans first and foremost not to be wasted on other nations/people. Tribe and his family and friends are welcome to submit their people and funds to help Ukraine, no one will stop them.

  12. Where was Mr. Tribe during the late 60’s and early 70’s while the anti-war (Vietnam) demonstrations that turned violent? Bet he didn’t think that those events were treason or an insurgency.

  13. Tribe is living proof that a Harvard education is meaningless. Don’t send your kids there, don’t hire a Harvard graduate, and don’t vote for a Harvard graduate until Harvard moves away from their leftist ideology.

  14. It seems like when the Left doesn’t have a logical argument, they call people names. Their fallback position is Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” especially accusing their adversaries of doing what they are doing. They accuse them of being Fascists when they act like Fascists. My dad used to say that when the Left is in the minority, they clamor for free speech; when they are in the majority, they repress free speech. The latest catchphrase is “misinformation.” Tucker Carlson is spot on except for one detail. When Ukraine surrendered its nuclear weapons, it was assured that the US would come to their aid if Russia came against them. Twice Russia has invaded Ukraine, and twice the US ignored the Ukrainians. Is our word worthless? It would seem so, at least when you’re a Democrat.

  15. I had a black professor who asked me where I got my name? Like it was any of his business.
    I should have asked him where he got his name, which was Peterson?
    But, I was but about 19, no match for a “professor” who had no manners.

  16. says a professor while indoctrinating our children to be terrorists. Harvard is no longer a prestigious college of integrity

  17. From what i gather from tucker wasn’t that he liked putin, but that you must be careful and respect the fact he has nukes. i am concerned that the world turning on putin so hard could turn him into a cornered rat with nothing to lose. you would hope that there are people within the russia that wouldnt launch them, but im not so certain

  18. We wouldn’t be interested in Ukraine if it weren’t for the OBiden family cabal’s economic interests there. OBiden was appointed by Obama to handle the Russian annexation of Crimea and all we got was a lot of bluster with no action and Russia is still in Crimea. If it weren’t for Hunter getting a paycheck from Burisma and giving a cut to the “Big Guy”, I doubt Papa Joe would even know where Ukraine is, let alone care enough to do anything about it.
    Tucker is absolutely right – we should be paying attention to our borders before we lose sleep over the Russia-Ukraine border!
    OBiden’s real objective, besides preserving his family’s income, is to drive up oil prices in order to justify another ill-conceived “treaty” with Iran. Just what we need – another America hating country with nuclear weapons.
