TOENSING: DOJ PLANNED A COUP AGAINST TRUMP — AND THE PRESS DOESN’T CARE
The saddest thing about the anti-Trump affair involving Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Ohr, and the whole cast of characters from within Obama's executive branch is that the "legacy" media doesn't seem to care that there was an effort to oust a duly elected president of the United States. And that appears to be have happened. The word "coup" is not too much here.
Yet nothing from an old media that operates as a wing of the Democratic Party for all intents and purposes. (It really is the DEMOCRATIC PARTY, and not just the Left. Witness the attacks from the media on Tulsi and similar folks.)
This is truly a crying shame. I don't care how much you hate Trump. This effort by a few within what can legitimately be called "the deep state" strikes right at the heart of the Republic. This should be a deep concern for everyone, even "never-Trumpers" who still believe in the rule of law and the American Experiment.
(From The Daily Caller)
Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein, along with other Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, plotted a political assassination of President Trump. Listen closely so you can hear the mainstream media’s crickets.
Former FBI acting Director McCabe confessed on 60 Minutes and elsewhere that he and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein discussed ousting the president in May 2017, even going so far as contemplating Rosenstein’s wearing a wire to capture the words of the president regarding his reason for firing Comey. Their weapon for ousting the duly elected president: the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.
The limited media comments expose a dreadful ignorance of the law. A collective ho-hum was the response to McCabe’s claim that Trump’s firing Comey triggered the investigation. Some commentators, such as CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin, even claim to have a law degree. They must have skipped constitutional law class. The president has Article II authority to fire anyone in the executive branch for any reason or for no reason. Whatever President Trump stated regarding his firing of Comey — and he has provided numerous reasons — has no legal significance whatsoever.
