Coup d’Etat

On January 22, 2017, in this column, titled “Fake Intelligence Report,” I reported on the fake intelligence report produced and vetted by then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, then Director of FBI James Comey and former Director of Central Intelligence John Brennan, all loyal Obama appointees.

The unclassified intelligence report was short on facts and long on speculation: “In fact this report smells of cheap political disinformation produced by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, and FBI Director James Comey, all Obama appointees. This report was nothing less than a tactic to distract from the Hillary Clinton loss to Donald Trump. It is a blatant attempt to delegitimize the Trump presidency, just like the 68 Democrats who boycotted the inauguration tried to do.”

The recently released House Intelligence Report on Russian collusion shows Clapper caught in a lie: “Finding #44: Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN national security analyst, provided inconsistent testimony to the Committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN.” In fact, Clapper leaked the false Russian Dossier to Jake Tapper.  Both Comey and Clapper denied having anything to do with the media reporting of the Russian Dossier.

On June 12, 2017, again in this column, titled “Comey’s Credibility Problem,”  I concluded that, in his Senate Intelligence  Committee testimony, Comey came across as weak and unable to respond to the President honestly.

In 1996, Jim Comey acted as the deputy special counsel for the Senate committee investigating the Whitewater scandal. While some people connected to the Whitewater company were arrested and charged with crimes. Comey eventually acknowledged that Hillary Clinton obstructed the investigation and destroyed evidence, but he decided not to prosecute due to Clinton’s ‘lack of intent’ . . . Then, in 2016, Comey accumulated enough information about Hillary Clinton’s email server and mishandling of classified information. Comey condemned her actions yet did not prosecute due to her ‘lack of intent.’ Sound familiar?”  

Now we have Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of Counterintelligence, who had  a key role in  the FBI’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton, the Trump-Russia investigation and surveillance of the Trump campaign.  The individual above Priestap, Andrew McCabe has been fired. The agent below Priestap, Peter Strzok, has been demoted and removed from the Mueller investigation. Is Mueller trying to “flip” Priestap? If so, Clapper, Brennan and Comey better start worrying.

The sheer number of people who have resigned, been fired, or demoted is staggering. DOJ’s National Security Department Head John Carlin unexpectedly resigned in September 2016 as National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers was about to report evidence of Section 702 queries to the FISA court. In my column of 4/15/18, Comey: “’A Higher Loyalty’ . . . to Hillary”, I mentioned that NSA Director Rogers “met with President Trump, ostensibly to be interviewed for staying in his current position. He informed Trump that the Obama administration was monitoring Trump Tower and all phone calls.  The next day, the Trump team decamped to New Jersey. Bill Binney, a 36-year veteran of the National Security Agency verified that Donald Trump’s team was being monitored at Trump Tower.”

Acting Attorney general Sally Yates  was fired by President Trump in May 2017. Former FBI Director James Comey was fired in May 2017. Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were demoted off the Mueller team in August 2017. FBI top counsel James Baker was fired in December 2018. DOJ Attorney Bruce Ohr, whose spouse worked at Fusion GPS, was demoted twice, most recently in January 2018.

Andrew McCabe, number two man at the FBI, was fired in January 2018. David Laufman, DOJ Deputy Assistant Attorney General  in charge of counterintelligence resigned in February 2018. Michael Kortan, FBI Assistant Director of Public Affairs resigned the day after Laufman. Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the number three official behind Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, resigned the day after Kortan.

The original decision to blame Russia  for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump was Hillary’s (see Shattered, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, pages 394 and 395).  Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS to fabricate a Dossier. Comey, Brennan and Clapper fabricated a fake intelligence report to bolster the smear against Trump. And we now know that five billionaires from California and New York entered into a conspiracy to overthrow the Trump administration with a $50 million investment.

We now know there never was a Trump-Russia collusion. We now know the collusion with Russia was through Fusion GPS, the DNC and high-level members of the FBI, CIA and DNI. The question is, will the Department of Justice indict and prosecute these traitors?



  2. For starters, give Jeff Sessions 30 days to get control of the Justice Dept., or he is out. Never saw such a do-nothing, after all the big talk while he was a senator. Alabama is so proud, about the same as we are proud of Flake.

  3. Everyone know’s it, but nothing will come from it. In the mean time they are still after this President with nothing to back their claims. Fire all the top level, and vote out the Dems, and wannabe (R) Dems.

  4. the question is ‘will the country as we know it survive’ speaking directly with ‘resistance’ thinking persons – it’s not a matter of anything but hate and self righteous thought… they think they and only they have the right – nothing short of evil – and perhaps that is the root – the nation becoming the Mystery Babylon (read that description yourself) the root of this ‘resistance’ is a pro for ultra liberalism – this will not end when and if this investigation and political war ends, it never will, resistance is an another word for ‘take over’ for ‘total rule over the population’ you either agree or capitulate. This is a culture war for this nation – toleration of alternate view, not an option. Its a new set of rule and the future of the country is what is ‘the issue’. Jail time for not making a cake sounds ludicrous until you consider that element at its core. It’s where we now are.. disallowing Christians – just down the road.

  5. I am a lifetime conservative (Not a McCainite) now registered as independent thanks to Johnny. McSally would be the WORST candidate we could elect. I for the first time would even consider Rep Sinema if McSally is presented as a conservative. Thankfully McFlake is out.

    • I’m sorry Dwayne but I have to disagree with your post. You can’t be a life long conservative and then consider voting for someone of the ilk of Kirsten Sinema. If Sinema is elected she would represent AZ for 6 long years as a Liberal Democrat. I don’t know how anyone that claims fidelity to conservatism could elect a Dem even over a RINO Republican. Although I’m not a great McSally supporter she has voted for Trump initiatives. In your wildest imagination do you think Sinema would have voted for those bills that Trump supports? No answer needed.

  6. Very few Republicans will even go after their compatriots. This is an unbiased take down of a sitting President. Just look at our 2 Senators. YUCK! Remember if you want to drain the swamp Kelli Ward is the only one running that fits the bill. McSally is nothing but a McCain sycophant.

  7. “The question is, will the Department of Justice indict and prosecute these traitors?”
    The answer is, NOPE. There are too many Democrats hiding in the Republican party. And you can be damn sure they will not go after their compatriots.

  8. These three nor Hillary will ever see time in prison. There is pleny of opportunity now and the evidence is there of their leaking classified information yet no arrest has been made nor has there even been talk of prosecution. Jeff Sessions is going to do nothing and neither is Rod Rosenstein. I doubt even impeachment of Rosenstein is going to work to bring any of these low lives to justice. Unless we the people rise up and take matters into our own hands nothing will ever be done.
