GOP strategist: Trump and his Republican enablers are carrying out a ‘bloodless coup’ for Putin

Published

on

A Republican strategist said President Donald Trump and his GOP allies appeared to be conducting a “bloodless coup” on behalf of Russia.

Political consultant Cheri Jacobus wrote in USA Today that this week’s startling news about Russian sanctions and GOP efforts to undermine the special counsel probe should terrify Americans.

On Monday alone, deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe resigned under pressure, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a memo the president admits is intended to undermine the special counsel probe and then, minutes later, the Trump administration announced it would not enact sanctions against Russia approved overwhelmingly by Congress.

“The ease with which Putin is undertaking his bloodless coup rivals his invasion into Ukraine after a series of strategic maneuvers to disable any resistance,” Jacobus wrote, “including a cyber attack on Ukraine’s government, and installing his own loyalists on the inside long before that. Hindsight being 20/20, the signs have been there for months.”

U.S. intelligence agencies have confirmed Russia interfered in the 2016 election, and Trump’s CIA director Mike Pompeo affirmed Monday that they would try again during this year’s midterms — yet GOP lawmakers and the president don’t seem worried.

The Trump White House and congressional Republicans seem unconcerned,” Jacobus said, “or perhaps even copacetic with the intervention that will yield results in their favor.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has resulted in two guilty pleas — including Trump’s first national security adviser Mike Flynn — and two indictments, including Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort on money laundering and other charges.

“Seemingly emboldened by the lack of any meaningful pushback, Trump has now reportedly been discussing having Mueller prosecuted as a means to end the investigation that has already ensnared several individuals who worked for Trump and likely many more to come — possibly including the president himself,” Jacobus said.

Jacobus said the apparent coup had happened “so swiftly, but with such surgical precision” that Americans still don’t realize what has happened — but she knows who’s to blame.

“Putin’s KGB-inspired maneuvering of the United States via Donald Trump and the Republican Congress has all the earmarks of a carefully planned, professionally executed war game in which Trump, congressional Republicans and some in right wing media are his comrades,” she warned. “But it’s not a game. The United States is in trouble.”

One of the 2 articles of impeachment against Trump points the way to disqualify him from running for president again

Published

on

If President Donald Trump were to be acquitted on articles on impeachment in a U.S. Senate trial and win reelection in 2020, he would be the first president in United States history to be impeached in the House yet win a second term. That’s one possible scenario, depending on what happens in a likely Senate trial and the 2020 presidential election. But journalist Lauren Frias, in an article for Business Insider, describes another scenario: Trump is removed from office by the Senate yet runs for president again anyway.
