Ex-Congressman literally threatens armed rebellion if Trump loses
Joe Walsh is, thankfully, no longer near the halls of power.
Walsh, who was a United States congressman from 2011 until 2013, declared on Wednesday afternoon that he will take up arms if Donald Trump is not elected to the presidency…
On November 8th, I'm voting for Trump.
On November 9th, if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket.

For the record, Walsh’s apparent plan to form a band of individuals to take up arms against the lawfully elected leader of the United States most likely meets the legal definition of treason. Under federal law, “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.”
