Ben Carson: Obama May Be ‘Guilty Of Treason’ If DHS Is Shut Down

Potenital presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson suggested Monday that President Barack Obama could be “guilty of treason” in the event of a Department of Homeland Security shutdown.

Carson made the remarks on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum,” when host and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) asked whether the former pediatric neurosurgeon had advice for GOP congressional leaders facing an impasse over immigration that could lead to a partial defunding of DHS.

“I would say break the funding for Homeland Security up into parcels. Don’t present it as a whole bill. That makes it much more difficult for [Obama] to stand in the way,” Carson said.

“And, if he does stand in the way, particularly of things that are vital to the security of this country, then I think we can start talking about treason,” Carson said. “If things are done to the contrary to the security of this country, whoever does them is guilty of treason.”
