President Trump “this was an attempted coup and what they did was treason”
President Trump spoke to reporters today before departing to Texas for a fundraiser. He said the Mueller investigation was illegal from the very beginning. He called it an attempted coup and said what they (DOJ officials) did was treason. He named names Comey, McCabe, Page, Strzok. This is going to get very interesting as Attorney General Barr wants to look at the Genesis of the investigation.
In his strongest words since the investigation he has repeatedly called a “witch hunt” Trump said correctly this was an “attempted coup.”
Trump said the probe was “started illegally” and that “every single thing about it” was “crooked.”
“There were dirty cops, these were bad people,” he said, listing off former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Strzok and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
And this was an attempted coup. This was an attempted take down of a president. And we beat them, we beat them,” Trump said. “So the Mueller report, when they talk about obstruction, we fight back. And you know why we fight back? Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was, it was a scam.”
Trump added that what he was “most interested in” now was a review by Attorney General William Barr of the conduct of the FBI’s Russia probe during the summer of 2016.
In other words the real collusion of the Obama DOJ, Crooked Hillary and all the crooked DOJ officials that joined them in the attempted coup is going to be investigated now. William Barr represents the first time President Trump has had a real Attorney General. Not sure who had control of Jeff Sessions but he was a weak little man. If and when a real investigation is done on the Genesis the very beginning of the Mueller investigation. We will find out it was based on falsehoods and the Democrats, the press (they are really one in the same) and Mueller knew it from the very beginning.
