During an interview on Sunday’s edition of Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz,” former “All in the Family” actor Rob Reiner told Howard Kurtz that based on what he sees “right now,” President Trump is in a conspiracy to commit treason.
The statement was in response to a question about a tweet Reiner sent earlier this month in which he stated: “When an American President attacks our closest allies and embraces a hostile enemy power who is trying to destroy our Democracy and democracies around the world, we can only conclude that he has been compromised and is in a conspiracy to commit treason.”

Breitbart posted a partial transcript of the interview:
KURTZ: Let me ask you about some of your own words. You tweeted the other day, ‘When an American president attacks our closest allies and embraces a hostile enemy power’ — you say — ‘he’s in a conspiracy to commit treason.’ So because you disagree with Trump’s foreign policy — which you have every right to do — treason?
REINER: I don’t say he is, I said one can only conclude. And there is a big difference.
KURTZ: That’s a fine distinction.
REINER: It is a fine distinction but I don’t know whether or not he committed treason. That will be something that we either discover or don’t discover as Mueller’s investigation goes on because unfortunately the House and Senate investigations are not moving along. So we’ll have to see what happens.
KURTZ: You don’t see that as an overly inflammatory word to use about a president?
REINER: It is a very inflammatory word, but if it turns out to be — let’s put it this way. No, no if. Let’s put it this way. From what I see right now, but there is a lot of blanks that need to be filled in for sure.
At this point, the only blank we see is the space known as Reiner’s cranium…
Reaction to Reiner’s tweet was predictable:
You people are insane. He's going to drag you kicking and screaming into a better future for America with reduced deficits, fairer trade deals, and more prosperity. Revenue and income solve a lot of problems.

your beloved Hillary sold US uranium to the Russians (enemy) for personal profit, you would go to jail for selling an empty federal file cabinet for personal gain. You actually get paid to lie, that’s what acting is, selling lies as entertainment. Stick to it!

Naturally, Reiner’s insane supporters agreed…
