Did You Say Coup?

Former FBI official Andrew McCabe needs to make some money... for his defense against probable criminal charges. So, he will go on 60 Minutes to explain how he and his fellow FBIers and Justice Department officials pondered mounting a coup against President Trump. They would have used the 25th amendment and declared him incompetent to conduct his office. And yet, Alan Dershowitz explained to Tucker Carlson last night, the amendment specifically aims at removing presidents who are grievously ill. If anyone believes that Trump committed a high crime or misdemeanor, the proper constitutional remedy is impeachment. Thus, these officials were fomenting a coup. 

Dershowitz is serious agitated about this, as rightly he should be.

With all due respect to Tuck and Dersh, this is not news, not even "fake news"; it's "old news", an oxymoron if there ever was one. Any rational person watching this criminal charade unfold knows that. When the Proglodyte Left can't prevail by manufacturing votes in automobile trunks and cemeteries, or demanding re-votes until they get the result they want, they try to destroy the object of their roiling hatred with Soviet-style psychiatric crimes.

Obama holdovers. Bitter enders.

Andy McCabe should be in jail, not on a book tour.

Think about this: McCabe, a 3rd-tier bureaucrat (FBI Debputy Director) says he did all this because he’s offended that his former boss — the estimable James Comey, FBI Director — gets fired my his ultimate boss, Donald Trump, who was ELECTED President of the United States. So he forms a “small group” within the FBI and DOJ — all unenelected bureaucrats of the executive branch who serve at the pleasure of POTUS — to take down the newly-elected President. They convinced Attorney General Sesssions to inexplicably recuse himself, and then Rod Rosenstein appoints the honorable Robert Mueller, former FBI Director for 3 terms (when the law limits the holder to only 2 terms). Not one of these clowns has ever been elected to anything. Not one. Zilch. Zippo. Nada.

Yet Andy McCabe thinks he can do this, and that it’s the right thing to do. And that he can do it. Where did he learn this??? At the Bureau. Keep in mind McCabe was trained as a lawyer before joining the FBI in 1996. He was at the FBI for 21 years. That’s his career — his development and mentoring. You don’t get to the top of the FBI by winning a lottery. He ultimately became Acting Director before being sacked by Sessions. He rose because he was chosen. He rose because he was the kind of guy Mueller (2001-2013) and Comey (2013-2017) wanted at the top. Think about that. McCabe has a J.D. He studied constitutional law, criminal procedure, etc. The FBI is a law enforcement a agency. He can’t plead ignorance.

That tells you everything you need to know about McCabe, Comey and Mueller. It also tells you a lot about the leadership Obama Justice Deparment, who have almost all been fired or resigned. If this is the rot at the top of the FBI, and they believe they (unelected bureaucrats) have this kind of power or latitude for legal intrigue, then the FBI should be liquidated. Hopefully William Barr will initiate some turnover. Andy McCabe — this is the guy that people moaned, wailed and whined about his firing shortly before he got his full pension. Well, perhaps ol’ Andy should’ve thought that through himself.

Eveyone’s looking for collusion in the wrong place. We’ve got James Comey, who thinks he can exonerate Hillary Clinton on his own, and we’ve got McCabe & Company, who think they can take down a sitting President within months of him taking office. And we’ve got Mueller running an investigation of POTUS. All this madness traces back to the vaunted Bureau... the G-Men.

Brazen isn’t even the word! These people don’t believe in elections, the Republic, democracy, We the People, the rule of law, the Constitution, or anything else. It’s a bureaucratic cabal hellbent on overturning a presidential election by any means necessary, Seems like treason to me. And the honorable Robert Mueller isn’t trying to investigate Trump’s collusion with Russia, he’s trying to save his precious Bureau that groomed all these jackals. Mueller mentored Comey at the FBI, and was Rod Rosenstein’s first boss at the DOJ’s Public Integrity Section of the Criminal Division. Oh, the irony! And then the Obama DOJ... dont get me started.

This is the real collusion: Obama’s DOJ, FBI, NSA, CIA, IRS, BATF, et al. The Obama Administration unleashed the most powerful, intrusive elements of the federal government on ordinary citizens. That’s their legacy.

This is an inside job to protect and save the Bureau. Think about that. I mean, really... think about that. D.C. isn’t a swamp, its a cesspool of amoral vipers like Andy McCabe and his colleagues, friends, peers and mentors. Disgusting.

Someone is going to have to explain how an honorable man could select a cabal of Clinton jackanapes? There were no available people in the Department of Injustice that were not tainted by being, in some manner, to the Clintons? How does an honorable man get called on the carpet 75 times for abuse of the FISA court? How does an honorable man appear to have a somewhat less than honorable connection to the machinations that happened in the Boston FBI office when he was there?
I suspect that, if one digs enough, we will find that Mueller has more that might not seem so honorable. When one plays next to a mud puddle long enough, it does not take much time before one gets mud on themselves. One cannot be around the Clintons and all their Democrat cronies without abusing the very government and laws for one's own benefit.
Color me skeptical of Mueller's honesty.

This is the biggest political scandal in U.S. history. This was a surveilliance operation by Democrats against their political opponents, using national security resources. It is perpetuated to this day under the guise of serious legal investigations, supposedly led by honorable men. In reality, it is a hit job by the intelligence community, DOJ and FBI — all unelected bureaucrats — originally to stop Trump’s election, and later halt the impact of his Administration. All this fakery has been stunningly effective.

Sundance over at The Conservative Treehouse blog has done incredible work on the FBI/DOJ “small group” cabal and its workings at stopping Donald Trump. The mainstream media could do this kind of work, but don’t. We all know why.

This all started with the FBI/DOJ players getting the FISA Court to approve a Title I surveilliance warrant on Carter Page, a low-level advisor to the Trump campaign. A Title I FISA warrant treats the target as a spy — “an agent of a foreign power.” It allows surveilliance within the U.S. of not only the target, but also any people associated with the target. This includes others in the Trump campaign, and even Trump himself. If you watch Page in interviews, the idea that he’s a spy is laughable. Same with George Papadopoulos, who has been a Mueller target. Low-level guys, eager to perform. Useful idiots.

The evidence used to secure the Page FISA warrant was the fictitious Steele Dossier. That document was a salacious, unverified opposition research report commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. It was written by a former MI-6 agent (Christopher Steele) for Fusion GPS, a political opposition research outfit who circulated it around D.C., including the media, DOJ, FBI. They then pursued the warrant through a friendly FISA Judge Contreras, who knows FBI agent Peter Strzok.

The purpose? To spy on Trump and his team. Remember: Hillary’s election was “inevitable.” Nothing to fear. Then Election Day 2016, and everything gets crazier because the stakes get higher, unleashing a string of events that get the bureaucrats quite agitated...

On November 17, 2016, Admiral Mike Rogers, NSA Director, went to Trump Tower — without telling Obama — to tell Trump that he was under surveilliance. The Trump team packed up the next day and relocated transition operations to Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. Clapper, Brennan and Ash Carter wanted Rogers fired. Oopsie, too late.

The plot is tied to the illegal NSA Section 702 “about” database queries/searches by Obama White House operatives like Rice and Power for the purpose of “unmasking” — analyzing the “incidental” communications by persons around FISA target Page. This happened with the full knowledge of Brennan, Clapper and Comey — all seething Trump haters. They became a bureaucratic cabal intent on stopping a duly-elected president. Elections, the Constitution, the rule of law — none of that matters. They all think alike. THEY know what’s best for the United States of America.

By pursuing the 25th Amendment angle, it became an explicit attempt at a coup d’etat, orchestrated by McCabe with the DOJ/FBI “small group.” Especially after his boss Comey got fired for being the subversive that he was. And McCabe says he won’t be silenced, and won’t go down alone. Let’s hope so.

But all this intrigue has been effective. Rosenstein cut Mueller loose with no limits, to protect the FBI and trap Trump associates in a dragnet of process crimes. Sessions recused himself, so no real Administration oversight. Trump, stymied by having to prove a negative, lost any initiative he might have had in his first two years in office — his best opportunity for legislative successes. The smothering 90%+ negative media coverage neutralized Trump’s agenda, while the D.C. swamp feigns concern about “muh Russia.” They all want him gone. He threatens the club that runs the country.

The Clinton/Obama crime syndicate ran the whole thing... tip-to-tail. People need to go to prison, starting with McCabe.

McCabe and his DOJ/FBI ‘small group” (including Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Rod Rosenstein, Bruce Ohr, et al) should be prosecuted for Seditious Conspiracy under 18 U.S. Code, Section 2384:

They should all also be indicted for lying to the FBI.

And that’s for starters...

Excellent summary of what is the biggest scandal that was and is still being perpetrated by a significant number of "deep staters." One has to include the MSM and a large number of Democrats as collaborators. I would posit that the reason they are pushing so hard to change the narrative is that this is all falling apart. The use of the word sedition is a kindness I would not apply. These people tried to undermine the Constitution and almost every aspect of the government and the electoral guarantees. Theirs was to "transform" our country into a dictatorship of the "MOB" That to me is far more dangerous than sedition.
