• The FBI’s Coup Attempt Failed

    The sad state of things is former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is barking around late night comedy shows, in spots usually reserved for B-list actors to pimp their latest movies, pimping the idea the president is a live Russian intelligence asset.

    We also hear from McCabe the FBI sought to overturn the 2016 election after it failed to get its preferred candidate elected.

    If any of this surprises you — essentially an attempted coup by the FBI that failed when the Cabinet would not support it by a faux invocation of the 25th Amendment — you haven’t been reading my stuff. Here’s a piece from over a year ago explaining.

     
    BONUS:
    And for fun, here’s a year old summary of the Mueller Russiagate case that could run today with some minor updates. Little of substance has changed, and yes, we’re still waiting.

    If you’re interested in what’s next, it will be the Steele Dossier falling apart. Here’s why.

    The full force of the U.S. intelligence community has been looking for evidence of Russian government (not just “some Russians”) interference in the election for close to two and a half years (five Trump campaign officials were under investigation as of September 2016, including Flynn.) It is reasonable to conclude they do not have definitive intelligence, no tape of a Team Trump official cutting a deal with a Russian spy. The same goes for the Steele dossier and its salacious accusations. If a tape existed or if there was proof the dossier was true, we’d watching impeachment hearings.

    What’s left is the battle cry of Trump’s opponents since Election Day: “Just you wait.” They exhibit a scary, gleeful certainty that Trump worked with the Russians, because how else could he have won?

      The Trump administration, basically the Presidunce himself, has been proven to be riddled with incompetence. If the clown is guilty of crimes ranging from money laundering to colluding with the Russians, Mueller won’t have a difficult task proving them. So yeah, just wait.

      I wonder if Andrew McCabe as an FBI agent at the time felt maybe George Bush was a House of Saud intelligence asset from 2001 and running up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq? Oops, I meant House of Halliburton.

      I don’t mind if Trumpie paid Russian prostitutes to pee for a fee. That’s between him and his prostitute wife – she’s not in it for the money, right?

      What’s left? How about his evilgelical base pay out of its own pockets for the Wall-fence-peaches. Let them designate their tax refund to go to paying for it —if it is a real emergency. Of course talk is cheap and Trumpies and his supporters would not pay a penny. They are defenceless.

      Thank you for finally elucidating the McCabe thing to me. I saw people mentioning it vaguely on Twitter but the entire Trump-Russia investigation is one big soap opera to me and I can’t follow what anyone is saying.

      And that Trumpie will be out of the country when the Mueller report is released is totally coincidental. If he wanted to claim asylum, he could go to the Saudi Bonesaw Embassy.

      Speaking of failed coups, Trumpie apparently was a hard target of the Coast Guard White Supremacist, who reportedly wanted to kill everybody. Still waiting for Trumpie to thank the evil Deep State for arresting him.

      Speaking of killing innocent people, crazy Jimmy Boeheim ran over a guy yesterday.

      Boeheim: I’m not like Joe Paterno.

      He’s right. Joe Paterno never killed anyone,

      Bauer- it is unbecoming that you seem to have only one reason to live today- to see Trump imprisoned. Did you lose a bundle at one of his casinos? Does he remind you of someone who molested you as a child? Were you turned down for a pee job by a prostitute? Is it his height of 6’3″? Don’t have the funds to join one of his private golf clubs? Wish you could dye your hair orange but don’t have the nerve? Are you secretly a Hillary fan and admirer? Would you explain for everyone here your Trump fixation?

      While Trump Nation looks to discover the truth behind the Deep State’s efforts to subvert this glorious democracy, may I suggest reading Lee Camp’s take on the real truth in Venezuela and the world. . Lee’s a comedian, and I take no satisfaction that comedians are the source of most truth these days.

      JP,

      Demented is just a symptom of the disease that has permeated this glorious democracy. He will go back to screwing his prostitutes after he screws over this country, Don’t worry, there are endless fuckers ready to pick up the banner.

      How many other white supremacists are lurking in the federal government waiting for their coup? Assuming the Presidunce is not the enemy of the people, maybe he will start a purge of these diseased individuals.

      A FBI coup would have been justified when George Bush was clearly taking America to war under false pretenses.

      That FBI coup would have involved removing the majority of the Dumbocrats, the liberal wing of the War Party. The fuckers all had blood on their hands.

      IF the FBI wanted to remove Trumpie, it could have set him up in some sex sting, like that geezer Patriot Robert Kraft. But the NFL has a higher standard of personal behavior than the Presidunce. It’s okay to solicit prostitutes if you are an American President.

      Kraft could have been charged with assault with a dead weapon. Damn Viagra.
