Survived a Coup

It appears that we have survived a coup d’état by our own government people. With the revelations that are just now coming out is seems that several high level people in the Justice Department and the FBI were trying to undermine and remove first a candidate and then our duly elected President from office. These people should be tried for treason.

We are also shackled by an Attorney General, Jeff Session that is either complicit or totally incompetent.  Thank goodness there appears to be someone who did not play the treason game. The Dept. of Justice Inspector General, Michael Horowitz seems to have created a report of what has been going on. That report, which is under review, is seemly what has brought on a stream of newspaper leaks of what has been going on. Those leaks are an attempt to lesion the impact of the report.

He is now been instructed to investigate the FBI trying to infiltrate the Trump Campaign. The latest revelations indicate that spies were place into the orbit of the Campaign in 2016 long before Trump was the candidate for President. How can it be that the FBI was spying on a campaign with no criminal event planned or haven taking place? It seems that some did not like Trump and they were out to sink and chances he might have to first become the Republican Nomee and then the President.

The American people have always trusted the FBI to be the honest guy and gals. Yet some people within the FBI have decided that they know more than the people and they know what is best for the country. Their efforts to control the course of the country let them to modify evidence and slant investigations to attempt to control the outcome of an election and then when that was not successful undermine the duly elected President. This is typically done in third world countries.

Not just the criminally of what they have done but their arrogance is almost inconceivable here in America where people take an oath to uphold the constitution and work with some of our finest people. To think they know what is best for the rest of us indicates how far left they have moved and find others like them in the same organization makes us all wary of how big government has grown and how insulated from the real people they have become. They have begun to believe they know best for our country and are prepared to us their power and office to do almost anything to control our countries destiny.

Then the simple question is how far and how pervasive this is within both the Justice Dept. and the FBI plus is any other agency involved? Once that is uncovered these people must be removed from power and in many cases prosecuted to the full extent of the law and incarcerated. This may seem harsh for people who claim to be patriots but they ae not patriots but people who want to be dictators and rule as they see fit. We must set an example for those we trust in high position that to betray that trust will pay a very high price.


  1. David Petrillo says:

    The only person who should be tried for treason is our illustrious President. In the mean time, let Mueller finish his job. Oh, try to spend less time on Alt Right web sites. They are turning your brain to mush.

    • James Wempe says:

      David, you are another blind sheep, If someone stole something, or harmed you or a family member you’d want them prosecuted to the full extent of the law. What’s the difference here? These trusted members are suppose to up hold the laws of the land. Mueller has finished his job of corruption. Now he can pay the price like the rest of the leftist breaking the law. As you put it, the “brain to mush” that watch CNN. PS: Let our President do his job.

    • Anthony A GORTON says:

      Trump hater,dime a dozen

    • Rick Crain says:

      Mr Petrillo,
      For what reason would you have our President tried for treason? Has he given secret information to our enemies in a time of war? The President can only be tried for treason in a time of a congressionaly declared war. Which war did he give up these secrets?

    • Bob Thacker. says:

      Mr. D. How much do you charge to haunt a house ?

  2. Petrillo nailed it. The tRump crowd seems hell bent on treason in their almost comical effort to undermine the entire DOJ with emphasis on the FBI. In more plain words, they are in direct conflict with their own oaths of office. They are not defending the constitution. They are working to destroy it and our democratic way of life. Why would an American do that? What amount of money or power or status would make that possible? Surely it cannot be to simply protect the empty shell in the Oval Office

  3. John Williams says:

    The job of the FBI and the CIA is to search for and root out those who would do our country harm, including people in a political campaign who are actively engaging with agents of foreign hostile powers, as SEVERAL people on the Trump campaign were doing. Those are proven facts. This statement at the end of your column CLEARLY fits Trump and much of his minions – ” they ae(sp) not patriots but people who want to be dictators and rule as they see fit. We must set an example for those we trust in high position that to betray that trust will pay a very high price.” I trust that in the end they WILL be treated as the criminals that they are.

  4. Miriam Samuels says:

    Good column, Mike. But, really, don’t you know it’s coup d’etat?

    • Terry Donnelly says:

      No, Miriam, he doesn’t. That’s how Fox News spells it. He can’t spell the Attorney General’s name either. It must be getting hard to hear in the echo chamber. The FBI wouldn’t have been interested in the Trump campaign and its loyalists if evidence hadn’t led them there. They weren’t spying, they were investigating.

  5. Lenni Cunningham says:

    This guy is nuts and not paying much attention. It was the Russians who they were looking into not Trump or his campaign. This is why it is so important to get news from a reliable source who hold integrity and honesty dear and close to their hearts.

  6. Mike Young says:

    Please inform us as to what the President have done criminally to deserve impeachment. Is it lower taxes, defeat ISSA, is it to appoint conservative judges to the courts, is it to drop Paris accords , rolling back crippling environmental regulations, getting out of bad trade deals or maybe moving U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, destroying our economy? Just what is it that you think deserves a charge of Treason? Put up you case up or shut up.

    By the way any charges for Hillary; like pay to play, money laundering, e-mails or maybe just lies about Bengasi, so many things can you just pick one?

  7. Al Smith says:

    I agree we should let Mueller continue Dave, cause he keeps digging the hole deeper for himself and all the unconstitutional “Alphabet” agency’s.
    Quoting Mr. Petrillo here,
    … ‘The only person who should be tried for treason is our illustrious President.’…
    Thank You for the “illustrious part” but on what grounds do YOU base Treason ..
    Just asking David…

  8. Kevin Johansen says:

    This is just another Trump conspiracy theory designed to rally his supporters because Mueller is closing in on him. The FBI used one confidential informant to investigate Trump campaign aides’ contact with Russians. “Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?” – James Comey

  9. Al Smith says:

    Thanks for the articular MIke.

    This is why the Founders gave us the Second Amendment. Our God given Right.

    “Too think they know what is best for the rest of us indicate how far left they have moved and fine other like them in the same organization show make us all wary of how big government has grown and how insulated from the real people they have become.”
