PHOENIX — Martha McSally called on Kyrsten Sinema to apologize to veterans and service members for saying it’s okay to commit treason in a past radio interview.
MCSALLY SAID IN THE DEBATE TONIGHT: “You said it was okay for Americans to join the Taliban to fight against us.”
FROM KYRSTEN’S RADIO INTERVIEW: “By force?” Hancock asked. “By me, as an individual, if I want to go fight in the Taliban army, I go over there and I’m fighting for the Taliban. I’m saying that’s a personal decision…”
“Fine,” Sinema interjected, “I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.”
According to the US code, the definition of treason is: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
When Congresswoman McSally asked for an apology, Kyrsten Sinema refused.
When Congresswoman Sinema was asked multiple time about her comments after the debate, she again refused to apologize.
She also said the McSally campaign took her comments about the Taliban out of context. We didn’t. Read the full story from CNN here.
