Democrats are happy to say U.S. President Donald Trump undermined American democracy.There was a burst of condemnation in the 48 hours after Trump's performance that elevated the discussion of "treason" by a president to a level not seen in generations.Trump responded Wednesday by casting his critics as victims of "Trump Derangement Syndrome," a term coined to describe a fury so deep it renders the afflicted blind to the president's accomplishments.Polls taken before the Helsinki summit suggest the public is split over how each party is treating Trump.Other strategists say Democrats generally are better off backing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of whether Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 elections in Trump's favor.Not all Democrats see the treason charge as necessarily harmful to their election-year prospects.And Rep. Jan Shakowsky, D-Ill., was the only one of 10 Democrats at a Tuesday news conference on Trump's Helsinki summit to mention the word "treason". But even she didn't directly accuse Trump of that offense. Instead, she thanked Brennan for "using the word that is starting to pop up now, and that word is treason". She noted that her own statement said Trump's conduct "borders on treason".
