TREASON: FBI’s probe of President Trump after he fired crooked James Comey was an obvious COUP attempt

Two years into his administration, POTUS Donald Trump remains under siege by special counsel Robert Mueller and the Deep State as establishment politicians, the intelligence community, and the “mainstream” media put up relentless, unprecedented resistance to his policies on a daily basis.

While the president has so far managed to hold his own, replacing several Washington “insiders” who were hand-picked to undermine his White House with people he trusts, new details have emerged providing a glimpse into the powerful forces aligned against him.

Late last week, as many readers have heard, The New York Times published a bombshell report that implicates the FBI in what can only reasonably be defined as a blatant act of treason and an attempt to overthrow a duly-elected president — simply for performing a constitutionally permissible act against one of their own.

Following the president’s firing of then-FBI Director James Comey, which, you recall, came at the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, federal law enforcement officials claim to have become “so concerned” about POTUS’ behavior that they actually opened an investigation into “whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests,” sources told the Times.

The paper noted further:

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.

The investigation the F.B.I. opened into Mr. Trump also had a criminal aspect, which has long been publicly known: whether his firing of Mr. Comey constituted obstruction of justice.

The Times reported that “days” after “FBI officials” opened the investigation it was turned over to Mueller, which in and of itself makes the timing suspicious. In addition to that, the Times report never mentions who actually authorized the FBI’s probe — whether it came from the Justice Department, as is customary, or whether rogue agents opposed to POTUS Trump’s presidency took it upon themselves to launch an investigation.

Something else that is odd: The Times reported that the investigation was on a dual track — both criminal and counterintelligence, when usually such probes are either one or the other. The paper said that officials within the FBI and other federal entities not named (such as the Justice Department and the intelligence community) were allegedly concerned that the firing of Comey was both a criminal act and a sop to Russia, a national security issue.

Nearly two years later, we find that nothing substantiates either of those suspicions. The convictions that Mueller has gotten have been for crimes not related to POTUS Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia. What’s more, we’ve since learned that Comey had a major role in assuring that Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, did not suffer legal fallout (as in, she wasn’t charged) for criminal mishandling of classified information.

Also, the fact that Mueller’s investigation has proceeded is prima facie evidence that the president did not obstruct it. And, as the Times reports deep into its story, “No evidence has emerged publicly that Mr. Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials.”




The Constitution grants the president the authority to dismiss anyone in his employ — which is everyone who falls under the Executive Branch. As head of that branch of government, POTUS doesn’t need a reason to fire anyone, though Comey — through his politically motivated mishandling of Clinton’s investigation — surely provided Trump with cause.

The president’s legal team has dismissed the investigation as pointless and it turns out that’s certainly true. But that’s the right answer to the wrong question, which should be: Who authorized the probe in the first place? Because whoever did it was obviously trying to undermine the president in such a way as to cause his removal from office — a coup, in other words.

So let’s call this what it is: Treason, pure and simple. That’s not a word Washington likes to use but that doesn’t make what the Deep State did, and is still trying to do, to POTUS Trump anything less.

The bigger scandal since is that no one in the bureau or Justice Department has done anything about it. Meanwhile, the cover for all of this — the Mueller investigation — continues.  — J. D. Heyes

LONG PAST TIME to cut more than a few sets of balls off.

The ONLY WAY to completely eradicate a Cancer ( or any other type of malignancy ) is TO COMPLETELY EXCISE IT.

End-of-Story.

The Question is: WHEN is it going to START HAPPENING ?

Not only have there been coup attempts by Deep State psychos to remove President Trump from office, but I believe there have been assassination attempts as well. So far he’s been protected, but I pray for his safety every day. There are Obama holdovers still working inside the government to oppose Trump. It’s nice to know that those traitors are not being paid during the shutdown. I know there are honest, hardworking government employees who are also being affected by the shutdown, but I like knowing that the rascals are shutdown from their bad anti-Trump seditious work. MAGA!

All of these thugs in the Obama administration including thug Obama, need to pay the legal price for this. I cannot imagine the US citizens having any confidence in Washington, DC after what we have seen happening to President Trump and again, what happened during the election of 2016. WE NEED TO TRUST OUR GOVERNMENT. Right now, not happening. So yes, how do we fix this? Legal ramifications, not just firings….gut the swamp. Perhaps the FBI needs to go. We know since J. Edgar that it was a sewer. Even Eisenhower was afraid to fire Hoover, as was Kennedy….and speaking… Read more »

Yeah, yeah…we KNOW the FBI is corrupt. Pointing it out EVERY DAY isn’t helping, anymore. Sadly, we don’t NEED more proof…we need SOMEONE in DC to do SOMETHING to fix the problem. SHEESH!

Could someone please tell me why we are spending so much money and energy going after Trump with zero evidence of wrongdoing, while letting this proven corruption ride? Something is seriously wrong with our justice system and congress!!!! Trump is boss of the DOJ. Send them out against the House with a grand jury and subpoena the whole lot of them. Start with Nancy, and interview her for months.

The day that Muller submits his report. is the day that new Atty Gen Barr should launch a wide probe investigation (no special counsel) for criminality under the Abuse of Office (abuse of power) Criminal Code:

Yes it was an obvious coup event and, in a straight line in both directions meaning before and since and still the President does nothing. AG Barr appears in confirmation hearing as an ex Bush establishment protector who will do nothing to upset the apple cart.

So there it is, a worn out, played out Trump who even, if he manages reelection has failed to restore our nation under law.

From the very beginning, I have felt that it was Obama(who had BEEN spying on Americans) using HIS Intel Agencies/Directors to do HIS Bidding, and they did so willingly. This came into being by Obama, Hillary, and his whole Corrupt Regime, because HE wanted to insure that ‘Criminal Hillary-who Also had the goods ON OBAMA. She/Bill ALWAYS Had “an Enemy’s List of Anyone who Got in THEIR WAY of becoming ‘Extremely Wealthy, Above ANY American Laws, Covering up THEIR MISDEEDS, and the Many who have Met their demise. These two have BEEN corrupt since early days in Arkansas and MANY… Read more »

Not treason, doesn’t comport with the definition.

It is criminal though, perhaps insurrection or sedition.

The question is… so what? These characters in the Deep State seem to have more Teflon cover than John Gotti, so they break common law, constitutional law, and every law in the books, not to mention engage in all sorts of dishonorable and immoral behaviors, and nothing ever happens to them. The worst that happens to them is they get fired and go on to take highly paid jobs with the MSM or Academia and start appearing in all MSM shows as “experts”.

The American people have full bellies and a phone with which to mastr*bate, so they DON’T CARE. You could have Islamic terrorists overrun Washington and until their personal door is kicked-in, THEY DON’T CARE. Americans will do exactly NOTHING beyond “keyboard warrior” and “Facebook bitching.”
Never in the history of Mankind has a nation and a people more completely deserved, even begged to wear chains. Bugger the whole bunch of them.

It DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THEY DO! The fix is in! All of this outrage is for naught. There are no consequences for the Left. The FBI are the Brownshirts for a Democrat party SO corrupt that they fixed their own primary with impunity! LOL! Evidence of their corruption? PROOF? These things ABOUND! The problem is that nobody does anything about it. Reality is that the mountain of proof we have, of this failing coup, is as good as having no proof at all.

The Federal gummint is far too powerful – ergo inevitably corrupt. Recall the sneering faces of Strzok, lerner, Brennan, Crapper et al…. These apparatchiks fancy themselves ‘Progressive’ when in actuality they are simply Oppressive. In a Socialised economy Friedrich Hayek warned that the worst sorts, the most venal and unprincipled, will rise to the top. We are witnessing this – look how vulgar and mendacious the DemoncRats have become. Federal power derives from the slavery of the Federal Income Tax which must be replaced with a consumer tax such as the Fair Tax. The Federal government ensconces corrupt politcos in… Read more »

I doubt anything will change until blood runs in the streets. DC is cancer, it’s treatment should consist of intense radiation until the malignancy is baked like a potato.

We have one man fighting for us and an amalgam of 535 enemy combatants/communists, RINO/quislings and a handful of conservatives.

The Deep State and their attempts to remove President Trump is being done BECAUSE he does not support their “Global Government”. President Trump must have been really shocked when he found out that the CIA, FBI, DOJ, Pentagon, and every department of our Government were/are crooked; AND that includes ALL the Banks (Feds), ALL CEOs of the large Corporations, ALL of the MSM (Main Stream Media), Washington Attorneys, Chamber of Commerce, etc. etc. (BECAUSE THEY ALL SUPPORT THE “GLOBAL GOVERNMENT”. ALSO, I have to add the Democrat Party and MOST of the GOP supports the “Global Government”. The Global Elite… Read more »
