Once upon a time, it was a crime in the United States to engage in a plot to overthrow a duly-elected president.
If such an operation were to occur during wartime, one would call it “treason.” If in peacetime, it’s “sedition” at a minimum.
Come to think of it, it’s still a crime to attempt an overthrow — a coup, if you will — of a duly-elected president. That’s what the “Spygate” scandal is really all about when you boil it down to the bare essentials.
The Obama regime, aided by deep state operatives in the intelligence community and federal law enforcement, all of whom relied on their propagandists in the mainstream media to help them perpetuate the act, clearly and blatantly engaged in an attempt to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president, as well as undermine him after he won. (Related: Democrat House members prepare to strap political NOOSES around their own necks in impeachment fiasco based entirely on fabricated thought crimes.)
There has been enough reporting from legitimate media, including us, to substantiate the allegation. There has been plenty of evidence of said coup attempt uncovered by Republicans in Congress to corroborate the claim.
Furthermore, subsequent investigations by so-called “watchdog” agencies, coupled with lawsuits from patriotic groups like Judicial Watch, have also uncovered bona fide, hard-core, irrefutable evidence that James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, James Baker, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, the Democratic National Committee, a British spy named Christopher Steele, and a “political opposition” firm known as Fusion GPS all conspired to oust President Trump from office.
And yet, not a single solitary individual involved in this obvious act of treason (remember, we are at war in Afghanistan and in parts of the Middle East and under a 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force — the modern-day equivalent of a declaration of war) has been held to account.
Yes, some people have been fired. Comey, McCabe, and Strzok have all lost their jobs. Ohr, the Justice Department’s former No. 4 official, has been demoted. Page was allowed to resign, and Baker is no longer employed as a top FBI lawyer.
But losing a job is one thing. These people deserve to lose their freedom. They must, in fact, if we are to preserve our republic for our posterity and hand down to our children a country that still values the rule of law.
If these individuals are not made examples of, then others will follow in their path. They will very likely employ some of the same acts of treason and deceit. They will no doubt use the same channels of communication, the same overseas intel assets, the same media sycophants, the same politicians currently serving in the Democrat and Republican parties.
Because why wouldn’t they, if no one is held accountable?
The most recent ‘investigative’ attempt to bring accountability was the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office. Headed by Michael Horowitz, the IG issued a scathing report listing 17 different offenses committed by various FBI agents in pursuing spy warrants against a member of the 2016 Trump campaign, Carter Page, from the super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FSA) Court.
Nearly every instance of ‘offense’ amounts to fraud committed against the FISA court, since the FBI agents and their former director, Comey, all knew that a document (a “dossier”) used to obtain the warrants was fake.
And yet…no indictments. No arrests. Nothing.
The FBI has tried to say its applications were kosher because a court approved them, while the court now fingers the FBI for deception. But so far no individuals have been held accountable, and the abuses would never have been discovered without the digging of former House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes.
We cannot survive as a viable country if individuals are permitted to engage in blatant acts of sedition against a president they simply do not like. America will devolve in the world’s best-armed banana republic.
