An attempt to force Donald Trump to resign from office is being led by GOP establishment insiders in concert with the Democratic-aligned media, according to a top Republican.
Author, journalist and Middle East Forum fellow David P. Goldman reveals that the unnamed ranking Republican told an off the record gathering this week that, “A “coup” attempt was in progress against President Donald Trump, with collusion between the largely Democratic media and Trump’s numerous enemies in the Republican Party.”
“The object of the coup, the Republican leader added, was not impeachment, but the recruitment of a critical mass of Republican senators and congressmen to the claim that Trump was “unfit” for office and to force his resignation,” writes Goldman.
Although it is unlikely that Trump will be impeached and virtually impossible that he will ever resign from office, the goal is to keep his administration mired in scandal so that Trump cannot advance his policy agenda.
This fits with our previous reporting, which exposed how individuals within Trump’s inner circle are already preparing to become the face of the effort to remove him from office.
The “coup” attempt is being organized by the usual suspects – John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Paul Ryan.
While some on the left continue to insist that the “deep state” itself is a “conspiracy theory,” the notion of a coup d’état is being seriously discussed by the likes of CNBC’s Jake Novak, who writes that this week’s Russia-Trump intelligence “leak” was part of the scheme, and that the leaks were possibly coming from “someone close to President Trump himself is essentially acting like a mole in the White House.”
“The really alarming news is that the duly-elected President of the United States appears to be the target of a political coup,” writes Novak, adding that Trump has not committed any single impeachable offense but, “The bottom line is that we have some very powerful people in Washington who really don’t like how democracy played out this time around and what they do to attack it next isn’t going to be any better than what they’re doing now.”
