Trump: Russia probe an attempted coup
He is blathering on about treason.
Looks like they will be starting an ‘investigation.’
Don’t have a link - it’s on MSNBC right now.

One of numerous threads on the topic of AG Barr investigating the origins of the Trump/Russia saga.

Elliot Dips*it is considering his options...

19. I think you are right. I'm afraid things are going to get very bad if something doesn't happen to
end this coup being carried out by tRump and the rogue authoritarian right-wing party now.

Not sure it can wait till 2020. And if it does, I have no faith in a clean election

My reaction to this?

10. What this tells me
He always regurgitates what he has read and he projects like crazy.
So I am guessing somewhere in the Mueller report there is phraseology that indicates that the Russian involvement was an attempted coup. 

It's a coup

And game over we have been discovered...

14. No, this is a Republican counter-attack strategy
Barr and the GOP Senate are going to make a big giant show of claiming that the deep state participants like Comey and McCabe were traitors who tried to overthrow the trump government.

Expect the words treason / traitor to be turned on their heads, and repeated over and over while his base is encouraged to be violent

My thoughts about what POTUS said this morning?
It's not treason to disagree with the President, or even to work against them.

What occurred was illegal, sure, and those involved should go to jail (but they won't).  Those who were indicted for process crimes or had their names besmirched, like Page and Flynn, should be able to appeal and get convictions overturned and expunged.  Further, they should be able to sue those individuals for slander and the MSM for libel.

Ultimately, until those members of the deep state are held accountable by being beggared for their actions and/or doing prison time, the people "in power" will not be deterred.

"Treason" is commonly used very sloppily in the US. No doubt hundreds or thousands of examples could be found in just the past three years of DU posts. So DU-folk are hypocrites for whining about Trump using the word imprecisely. They should avoid like the plague telling Trump to, "Put up or shut up," because when he does, they will. Or maybe their howling and wailing will get turned up to 111.
Facts don't matter to DUpipo

Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
