The man who caused a stir by organizing an anti-Islam rally in Phoenix in May is taking aim at Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Michigan, saying she committed treason by voting for the Iran nuclear deal.
In a letter to Roll Call, Jon Ritzheimer outlined his plans to organize with the Oath Keepers militia and personally arrest his “first target.”
“We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” he says in the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”
In the letter, he says once Stabenow is detained, he and his armed militia will continue moving across the country to “arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal.”
That includes President Barack Obama.
Don’t worry though, it’s all legit, says Ritzheimer.
In the letter, he claimed to have notified law enforcement officials of his intended maneuver to “try to keep this as smooth as possible.”
Stabenow’s office cited a policy to not comment on security measures when contacted by Roll Call.
Unfortunately for Ritzheimer, the Oath Keepers told The Washington Times that it does not support Ritzheimer’s plan. Instead, it’s working to kick him out of the organization.
The group is made up of current and former military and law enforcement officers who focus on defending the constitution.
This isn’t the first time treason accusations have been associated with the Iran deal.
In March, a White House petition was launched seeking treason charges for the 47 GOP senators who sent a letter to Iran’s leaders warning a nuclear deal wouldn’t be valid without congressional approval.
In a day, it hit the 100,000 signature threshold to get an official response from the Obama administration.
The response amounted to this: No harm, no foul.
