Now that all the facts have played out, it is quite clear the Trump–Russia collusion investigation was nothing short of an organized coup to both undermine Donald Trump’s presidency and remove him from office.
In fact, according to Attorney General Bill Barr, the probe amounted to the biggest “organized coup” seen in modern times “to push a president out of office.” Speaking on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures, Barr appeared to agree with interviewer Maria Bartiromo that “this was the closest the United States ever came to a coup to take down a president since the assassination of Lincoln,” according to Breitbart.
“And it continues”
As Breitbart reported, Bartiromo said she first heard the comparison to Lincoln’s assassination from a source “a couple of years ago.”
“Is that an appropriate statement?” she asked Barr.
The attorney general didn’t mince words in his response. “In this sense, I think it is the closest we have come to an organized effort to push a president out of office,” Barr said, according to Breitbart.
“And it continues,” Bartiromo conceded, as Breitbart reported.
Where’s the accountability?
When Trump first ran to be the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, it was quite clear that Democrats would stop at nothing to keep a true outsider from getting his hands on the White House. Oddly enough, as it became clearer that Trump was going to get the GOP’s nod, the Russia collusion narrative started to rear its ugly head.
The country spent more than three years watching our president be investigated for naught. And when that effort was taken down, the Democrats moved on to allegations of obstruction of justice and abuse of power — charges of which the Senate ultimately acquitted Trump.
But the saddest part is that absolutely nothing has happened in the realm of accountability to any of the major players behind the effort to remove Trump from office.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), arguably the ring leader of the entire charade, is still collecting a government paycheck as a representative of the people of California. This, despite the fact that he is a proven liar who told the American people over and over again that there was absolute proof the Trump administration had colluded with the Russians — something of which even Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn’t find evidence.
Meanwhile, James Comey, the former director of the FBI, oversaw massive abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the bureau’s investigation stages of this case, but no one has thrown the book at him, either.
If the attorney general is going on national TV telling everyone he thinks there was an organized coup against a sitting American president, we have to ask: why isn’t anyone behind bars, or at the very least indicted? We can only hope accountability comes sooner than later.
