On CBS’s “60 Minutes”, while trying to promote his new book regarding Trump and the FBI (which is 100% likely to have b.s. all over it), former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired by President Trump on the eve of his retirement, claimed that “he and other Justice Department officials discussed recruiting Cabinet members to oust President Donald Trump using the 25th Amendment after Trump fired then-FBI director James Comey,” according to the Daily Wire.
The New York Times also reports that McCabe makes the claim that “top Justice Department officials were so alarmed by President Trump’s decision in May 2017 to fire James B. Comey, the bureau’s director,” that they contacted various Cabinet members to see how they would respond to the desire to apply the 25th Amendment, an amendment in the U.S. Constitution that allows for the Cabinet to “vote out” the president if he or she is incapacitated or otherwise is incapable of fulfilling his or her duties.
In other words, the FBI, at least McCabe, and the DOJ looked to test the water in Trump’s own Cabinet to see if they would be willing to remove the president using the 25th Amendment. Given that this attempt at a very obvious silent coup resulted in nothing the Deep State wanted, it is safe to assume the Cabinet did not wish to remove Trump from office.
Of course, that didn’t stop the Deep State from continuing trying to remove the duly-elected President from office just because they don’t like him one bit.
McCabe also made the claim that Comey’s firing “prompted Mr. McCabe to order the bureau’s team investigating Russia’s election interference to expand their scope to also investigate whether Mr. Trump had obstructed justice.”
Again, it’s clear this amounted to nothing because Trump fired Comey in May of 2017. It’s been nearly two years and there has only been suggestions that it was obstruction of justice from the media, but no concrete case could be made against Trump because the FBI operates under the Executive branch, which Trump is the boss of, so he can fire whomever he wants for whatever reason he wants.
This includes terrible FBI directors who are incompetent at best and outright treasonous at worst (and sometimes both, considering they failed to complete their objective of destroying Trump).
Now, the man who interviewed McCabe is CBS’s Scott Pelley. Pelley discussed his interview with McCabe on “CBS This Morning” on Thursday.
Pelley said: “The most illuminating and surprising thing in the interview to me were these eight days in May when all of these things were happening behind the scenes that the American people really didn’t know about.”
To me, it’s very illuminating of the kind of corruption there is in the Deep State, but it comes as no surprise to me. We’ve known that there has been a silent coup against Trump for about two years now. It’s just very illuminating seeing the details of something we knew very well about already.
In any case, Pelley continued: “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment. These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel. And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.”
Again, none of this comes as any surprise to me. Still, it is always good and fascinating to learn of the procedures that were undertaken to try and remove Trump from office that very clearly failed.
And the funny thing is that McCabe also confirmed that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein discussed having agents wearing a wire when speaking with Trump was discussed seriously, not as a joke, which Rosenstein tried to affirm.
Now, let me tell you a little something about what it takes to become an American citizen. Trust me, what I will tell you has more to do with this than you might think.
While seeking to become a citizen of the United States, people need to take certain oaths as part of becoming a citizen. Apart from taking tests and being able to speak basic English (although that might’ve been removed from the requirements for seriously dumb reasons), you have to swear allegiance to the United States of America.
And as part of this oath-swearing, you are required to swear and affirm that you will never attempt to overthrow the American government.
Obviously, everyone says that they won’t do that as part of trying to become a citizen, but people that try to overthrow the government very clearly receive some sort of punishment if they do try it. Now there exists in the penal code title 18 of the U.S. penal code § (Section) 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government.
There is also title 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason. However, I do not really think there is a case against McCabe (or anyone else involved in this silent coup) using these two code sections.
The Advocating overthrow of Government section talks about people who violently or forcefully seek to overthrow the government. Talking with Cabinet members to use the 25th Amendment does not even get close to that requirement. As far as Treason goes, that largely talks about levying war against the U.S. or adhering to our enemies, “giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere”.
So I do not think there is a case against McCabe using either of these two clauses.
However, that does not mean that McCabe and others involved with this silent coup, such as Rod Rosenstein, Comey, etc., should simply get away with it. Of course, I’m not saying we ought to break the law to punish them. That would make us no better than these scums of the earth.
However, what I am saying is that it’s become crystal clear just what we are dealing with. The Deep State is a den of snakes. Corrupt people at various levels and areas of the government that routinely poison the well.
It is not enough to simply defeat Democrats in elections, we have to completely defeat the Left socially and spiritually. You’ve seen, for the past two years (and just about any time there is a Republican in office) the sort of visceral and vile reactions the Left shows.
When Trump beat Hillary, everyone on the Left was crying foul while they themselves were guilty of foul play, being covered up by the Mueller investigation into Trump. Every day, the media suggested Russia either hacked the election, and when that was shown to be an asinine argument, began to insist Trump and Russia colluded to steal the election.
When Bush beat Gore, the Left went haywire on the Supreme Court and on Florida, crying foul play. Now, I don’t know if they were themselves guilty of similar foul play back then, but I wouldn’t put it past them to have at least tried something. I’m too young to remember the Bush presidency (I’m also not from here, as I moved to the U.S. when Obama was in office), much less remember the 2000 election, apart from the cries from the Left against Florida and the Supreme Court (and I only learned about all this long after Bush left office), so maybe those who were here for it can remember some shady things, but since I do not have anything even close to evidence, I won’t allude to much. All I’ll say is I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to destroy Bush in a similar manner to Trump.
When Lincoln beat Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge and Democrat Stephen A. Douglas in the 1860 presidential election, seven states in the Democrat South decided to secede before Lincoln was even inaugurated.
The Left has historically HATED it when a Republican would beat a Democrat in a presidential election, going all the way back to the very first Republican president.
Instead of accepting the results of the elections like civilized and rational people, they often throw hissy-fits that last throughout that president’s entire tenure, be it one or two terms.
If it’s not outright secession from the Union, it’s attacking the Supreme Court and the State of Florida. If it’s not attacking the highest court in the land or the Sunshine State (Florida’s nickname), it’s insisting that the Republican victor of the election was in cahoots with foreign agents (a crime which the Clinton campaign and the DNC are very obviously guilty of themselves).
And now, we see some more details regarding the silent coup the Deep State has been attempting for the past two years. Again, it’s not surprising at all, but very illuminating.
And it’s fitting, to be quite honest. The Bible tells us an awful lot about works being made in the darkness coming to light.
Verses such as Luke 8:17: “For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light,” and Luke 12:3: “Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops,” are only some verses that come to mind (and a quick Google search).
Whatever the enemy, be it Satan or the Deep State, is plotting in the dark will eventually come out into the light. Be it soon after it is plotted or years and years later. Be it immediately or takes a lifetime, these things are made known to us eventually. Not to compare this silent coup to the Holocaust because any comparisons to it tend to cheapen the horrors of it, but the Holocaust was something that was discovered to have happened only after WWII had already ended. All-the-while people were looking at Hitler as this bad guy looking to rule the world, many were made unaware of the true horrors that evil socialist was carrying out in the dark.
Again, not to compare what Hitler did to what the Deep State is trying here because there really is no comparison in terms of their horrifying natures, but they both do share in common that they are works by evil people, people completely devoid of Christ in their hearts, working in the darkness against people they hate/hated.
And both have come out into the light for the whole world to see. Of course, the extent of the silent coup is not quite yet known so far, but it will be made known eventually, whether it be in a few months, years, decades, or in the afterlife, it will be shown.
Certainly no part of it is any secret to God. The Deep State can hide whatever they want from the public for however long they feel is necessary, but nothing they do is a surprise to God. He knows precisely what they are doing and what the intentions of their hearts are.
We will see what kind of excuses these people come up with to justify their entrance into the Kingdom of God. I bet none of them have the correct answer.
1 Corinthians 4:5
“Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.”

On Monday, the FBI raided the home, office and hotel room of Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who’s now being investigated for “possible bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations,” according to The Washington Post.
This is all in relation with the Stormy Daniels “scandal” and is nothing more than justice being held hostage by Leftists who got ticked off that their favorite candidate didn’t win. I say this because it’s true and because those possible charges are really reaching for lawlessness.
What do I mean? Well, with the bank and wire fraud, that rests solely on Cohen. Supposedly, he had taken a loan of $130,000 to pay Stormy Daniels to make sure she remained quiet about her supposed affair with Trump.
Now, I don’t have all the information with me, but I really don’t see any way how Cohen committed fraud against a bank by using the loan to pay someone off. In general, it’s a bad idea to take out a bank loan to pay off, say, a debt, but I never knew it to be illegal (it’s not. Generally speaking, unless the loan agreement specifies otherwise, you can do whatever you want with a bank loan, even investing the money).
Again, I don’t have every important bit of information in front of me, but I doubt Cohen committed fraud here, not to mention that Cohen said he paid Daniels with his own money. Even if what he said is untrue, claiming it’s your money doesn’t constitute a bank fraud.
The last part, the “campaign finance violations” is also a bit of a reach. Cohen paid Daniels (either with a loan or his own money) “in a private transaction in 2016,” according to Cohen. This could be considered a violation of campaign finance laws, but you also have to ask this: "what about the money Congressmen set aside to pay off women?" If the issue here is that Cohen had to disclose that amount and didn't, why don't horny Congressmen have to do the same?
Why is this a bigger deal for Trump than it would be for, say, Al Franken?
Once again, I will admit I don’t have all the information in front of me. I could be completely wrong about this, but generally and logically speaking, with the information I do have, this should be a nothing-burger. This is something that shouldn’t land Cohen in prison or remotely threaten Trump’s presidency.
Now, that being said, I don’t doubt the Left will further destroy justice and take into their own hands to destroy Trump. Supposedly, the kind of warrant used to raid Cohen’s home and office is very difficult to get and not used for anything other than something major. Then again, the same could be said for FISA warrants, and you know full well how easy it is for the Left to get those.
These warrants aren’t being used to investigate a crime. Mueller was never given a crime to pursue in his investigation and the only reason Cohen is being investigated is because of his ties with Trump. The only reason we’re even hearing about these things is because the Left is full of children who are still throwing tantrums that they lost a Presidential election, particularly against someone they deem a massive buffoon at best.
Had Trump lost, there wouldn’t have been a Russia investigation despite the fact that Hillary very clearly and evidentially colluded with Russia in the elections. Had Trump lost, this whole Stormy Daniels eye-roller of a “scandal” would never have even come up. The only reason they are brought up is because he beat the Left, which in their eyes is a crime almost punishable by death (or actually punishable by death if they feel they need to go that far).
For as bad as the Left wants to make this appear to be, it’s their own people that do much of the same and even worse. Let’s not forget former Democratic presidential candidate and senator, John Edwards, was tried on those exact charges before eventually being acquitted and the Obama DOJ dropped the charges (because of course they did). It wasn’t a big deal when he did the things they claim Cohen, and by extension, Trump, did so why is it a big deal now? The same could be said about the “Cambridge Analytica scandal”. Obama did the exact same thing, using Facebook’s data to determine voting patterns and likely voters among other things, during the 2012 election in order to influence people into voting for him.
It’s entirely likely that Hillary did (or at least tried to do) the same thing in 2016.
The reason it’s as big a deal as they make it out to be is because it involves Trump and gives them some hope that they’ll be able to impeach him come next year.
Now, let’s address the title of this article. What does this mean moving forward? It means that I’ll be even more fired up to defeat the Left come November. It means that justice is being held hostage by a bunch of angry children in places of relative power. There was no need to raid Cohen’s home and office. Cohen has been cooperative about everything. The only reason a raid was conducted was purely for political reasons. They want to make you, a Trump supporter, angry and afraid that it will all be over soon. And they want to give their base a false sense of hope that Trump’s administration is on the verge of destruction.
Legally, much of the same things will happen moving forward as they would have without a raid. Make no mistake, this raid was nothing more than an exhibition of force in order to intimidate you and anyone who supports Trump. It’s nothing but terrorism tactics in its most literal sense.
This, on its own, likely won’t lead to Trump’s impeachment, much less his prosecution. Trump was hardly involved in this and has even claimed that he had no knowledge of the payment. Even if he’s lying and he did know about the payment, the Daily Wire tells us: “if Trump knew about it, that could constitute criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance law”. Not if it really wasn’t a violation of campaign finance law (and there's a chance it won't be seen as one).
So there’s a lot of “ifs” in this scenario. If Trump really didn’t know about the payments, that’s the end of this particular criminal charge the Left would want to put on him. But even if he did know about it, they would have to prove that it really was a violation of campaign finance law (which, in all fairness, could be the case).
All this really will do is fire up Trump supporters to go out and vote and make sure that Democrats don’t take back either the House of Representatives or the Senate. We’ll take useless Republicans who likely won’t impeach the President based on nothing over blood-thirsty Democrats who will impeach Trump based on the grounds that he simply defeated Hillary and that’s good enough to impeach him.
Even then, Democrats would still need a super-majority to supersede the certain veto Mike Pence would issue regarding the impeachment of Trump. And with their agenda of repealing the tax cuts that have helped most of America, taking away people’s guns, and giving amnesty to criminal aliens, prioritizing them over the American people, I don’t see them coming close to a super-majority. If Republicans really wanted to, they could have a super-majority of their own and be in power for decades.
The unlikelihood of Democrats winning a super-majority combined with the multiple variables and questions in the Stormy Daniels “scandal” indicates the likelihood of Trump being impeached is not very high.
Now, what could this mean for the Left? I don’t know what Trump is thinking, but I don’t think he’ll fire Robert Mueller over this. Mueller doesn’t really have much of a hand in this because his only tie to it is that he gave a referral to the Southern District of New York about this. It was the SDNY and the Department of Justice that had a bigger hand in this ordeal.
Does this mean Trump will fire Sessions or Rosenstein? Again, I don’t know what Trump is thinking here. I can’t say with certainty whether he will or not. We'll just have to wait and see. He certainly has the authority to do so and will not be actually charged of "obstruction of justice". Accused? Likely. But not charged.
Yes, he could fight it and yes, it could also fire up Trump’s supporters, but it could also fire up Democrat voters as well, smelling likely victory over the horizon. If Democrat voters think they’re very close to actually impeaching Trump and for a seemingly legitimate (it wouldn’t be) reason, they will be fired up to vote.
Granted, that could be the general case regardless of what happens, but this alone should fire up Trump supporters even more. At this point, it’s about ensuring the survival of this administration.
