Trump Calls Russia Investigation “Attempted Coup”

(May 24, 2019) — In remarks to the press on the White House lawn before leaving for Japan early Friday afternoon, President Trump recapped his authorization Thursday evening to the attorney general to begin the process of “declassification” of documents associated with the Russia “collusion” investigation.

Almost immediately, he said the outcome of the “Russia” narrative was an “attempted coup” against his administration.  “You’re going to learn a lot,” he predicted.  “I hope it’s going to be nice, but perhaps it won’t be.”

The probe ended on March 22, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed in his report concluding that no one in the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian operatives to affect the 2016 election outcome.

Trump had said throughout Mueller’s 22-month “witch hunt” that there was “no collusion” or “obstruction,” two of the main issues covered in the report.

According to several Republican congressmen, the documents Attorney General William Barr is expected to approve for release will show that “Democrats” misled the American people and that the U.S. intelligence community “spied” on members of the campaign and likely the transition team.

Trump opined that Democrats “want a re-do of the Mueller report.”  He said he would like to work on lowering prescription-drug prices but cannot accomplish it when congressional Democrats insist on continuing to investigate him.

Another issue is whether or not four surveillance warrants obtained on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page were applied for in accordance with FBI policies given that the Russia “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele was unverified.  FBI policy requires agents to say under oath that the evidence presented to request a FISA warrant has been “verified.”

“Everybody wanted me to declassify; I’ve done it,” Trump told reporters shouting a myriad of questions as he prepared to board Marine One on the South Lawn.  “You have to get down to what happened…they tried to do a take-down, and you can’t do it.  This should never, ever happen to another president again.”

In response to a question about which documents Barr may declassify, Trump said he “hopes” Barr will examine those involving the UK, Ukraine and Australia.”  Earlier, he said he will likely speak with now-outgoing UK Prime Minister Theresa May about possible involvement of UK intelligence services in activity associated with his 2016 campaign and election.

“It was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country.  It’s the greatest hoax probably in the history of our country,” Trump said.

He also berated the media for “giving fake news” which he believes affects his approval rate with the American people.

As for rumors that he plans to pardon several convicted former military members, Trump said he is considering “a lot of different pardons for a lot of different people” and has not yet made any decisions.  The reporter asking the question characterized those convicted as “war criminals.”

As for those still facing military trials, Trump said, “It’s very possible that I’ll let the trials go on and I’ll make my decision after the trial.”

    More from the same March 18, 2011 letter from Senator John Boozman as my previous post on this subject:
    “In June 2008, Mr. Obama released an electronic copy of the certificate bearing the seal of the State of Hawaii Department of Health showing that Barack Hussein Obama II was born to mother Stanley Ann Dunham in Honolulu, HI at 7:24 p.m. on Aug 4, 1961. While there are some concerns over the validity of the birth certificate, Hawaii state health director Dr. Chiyome Fukino and Alvin Onaka, the registrar of vital statistics, examined and vouched for the authenticity of the President-elect Obama’s birth certificate. The document has also been reviewed and deemed authentic by experts at the University of Pennsylvania’s Anneberg Public Center. In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court has denied hearing any of the cases brought before them regarding this issue and President-Elect Obama was certified as the 44th President of the United States on January 8, 2009.
    Again, thank you for contacting me on this very important issue. Please be sure to visit our website. I look forward to your continued correspondence.
    John Boozman
    I believe as far as Boozman and the others in Congress are concerned the case was officially closed with this, forever………..
    The now proven forged long form birth certificate was released on April 27, 2011.

    Even after the CRS memos were released to Congress there were still, over time, big variations is the BS stories Congress was feeding their constituents. One I just ran across from 2011 from the office of my Senator, John Boozman, says that, “Acts of Congress in 1790 and 1795 clarify that, the “children of citizens of the United States….shall be considered as “natural born citizens”. That is an exact quote from the letter dated March 18, 2011. Other attempts to make Obama eligible by members of Congress include, “the State Department vetted Obama for eligibility” …”I believe Obama is a U.S. Citizen as required by the Constitution”,….“Obama was certified eligible by the DNC”……. and later there were many citing Obama’s proven forged long-form birth certificate as proof he is eligible. The people who allowed and assisted Obama’s usurpation, either by their actions or inaction or both, are still working as hard as possible to maintain the charade of eligibility they built around Obama…….and they are not going to stop trying. They believe there future depends on maintaining the cover-up they have been part of since Obama was sworn-in back in 2009. The cover-up is still in progress and the coup to try to remove Trump from office is part it. The coup was made necessary when the planned after Obama cover of Hillary failed and Obama’s biggest nemesis, Donald Trump; “the birther” was elected president. Congress believes the cover-up must be maintained…forever.

    I compared notes with friends in other states after contacting our respective Congressmen over the birth certificate issue. I found it just a little too “coincidental” that their congressional responses were identical (verbatim) to the one I received from my congressman. It’s like they were all written by the same person? Every sitting congressman and senator from 2008 forward is complicit in some form, some by action and others by inaction.

      Then there were those CRS memos…

    Jeff Harrison,
    Last November a staff member who told me he could speak for my Congressman Steve Womack told me, to paraphrase, “The Congressman believes Obama is eligible and his mind is not going to change on this”. I was also told that I could visit the DC office with whatever evidence I had, accompanied by whoever I wanted and that would not change the Congressman’s mind. He then asks me to stop making “duplicitous” calls to the office. Not coincidentally this call was about a week after the office had received another copy of Mike Volin’s, “Sheriff’s kit”, describing how it was proven that Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery, as is his Selective Service Registration. The staff phone talker said Sheriff Joe should have saved the money he wasted on his investigation.
    Members of Congress won’t be changing their minds until there is absolutely no other choice.
    IMO this is because they are all complicit in The Obama Fraud, either by doing/saying nothing to prevent Obama from being sworn-in back in 2009, and/or being part of the still on-going cover-up of Barry’s usurpation of America’s presidency. As a minimum, they violated their sworn oath to protect the Constitution.

    NO imposter should have had the backing that Obama has had for his crimes of treason and espionage against “We the People” of the United States of America. There must be dozens, if not more, bad actors complicit with Obama’s coup by fraud during time of war. This issue must never be dropped until Obama and his cabal are brought to the Bar of Justice. Even if it takes 50 years, God forbid. That Obama seemingly escaped prosecution, to date, for his crimes has now emboldened the likes of Cruz,Rubio,Jindal,McCain,Swarzenegger,Harris and others to attempt it. This is a very extremely serious issue of national security. Eight years of Obama has been a disaster on our freedoms and liberties. Obama’s cabal has it’s tentacles fiercely wrapped around our Pentagon, the Intelligence community, the House in Congress and has seriously infringed on the protections that our Constitution provides. Hyperbole? Absolutely not. Our country is under siege by the likes of Pelosi, Schiff, the Clintons, Nadler, Swallwell, Watters, Harris, AOC, Tlaib, and Obama himself. Their attempt to take down President Trump any way they can, even it means framing him, bearing false witness against him, using innuendo and fake news media as well as fake dossiers is unconstitutional on it’s face, criminal in nature and treasonous. This is Memorial Day weekend. The many that shed their blood and those who lost their lives doing so, for the sake of their fellow American’s safety and security, deserve better then this. The fate of our nation is in OUR hands now. Each and every true American has a sacred duty, under God, to preserve for ourselves and to pass this nation’s freedoms and liberties to posterity, in a state of something better then that which we find it to be in now. The Obama cabalists are squirming. It is they that are in the spotlight now, considering that the AG is now investigating the investigators., and what do they do? They attempt to obstruct justice by threats of impeaching AGUS Barr. “Oh what a tangled web we weave when once we practice to deceive”- Sir Walter Scott. The Dems have “a lot of ‘splainin to do”- Desi Arnaz, Sr. as Ricky Ricardo in “I Love Lucy”.

    Never again should an USURPER obtain the Office of President. I am so thankful and proud of the numerous citizens from across America from all levels who have come forward and “taken” on this issue. Some citizens have been disinterested from the beginning, others have grown weary or have feared mocking, financial and/or business loss, or physical harm.

    Some time ago my Congressman GT/Thompson stated to me the issue of Obama was, “water under the bridge”. Likewise, Senator Toomey’s staff said to me”they weren’t” interested. “Hay GT”, “Toomey”, the “Lame Stream Media and others” get ready for the massive deluge.

    I tend to confuse people with my ‘tongue-in-cheek’ statements.

    I have no doubts that the presidential impersonator who was assigned #44 deserves the punishment that must be judicially dished-out to him and his enablers.

  8. Robert Laity   Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 12:42 AM

    Nikita, Obama’s “Presidency” was soi disant, specious and non existent. There is no ‘President’ Obama” : A president is limited by the constitution to two terms. Obama’s said “terms” were illegitimate. President Trump committed no “Coup d’état”. Trump is a natural born U.S. Citizen who meets all the other Article II requisites as well. Coups or overthrows of lawful authority are illegal. Recovering our lawful authority is not properly referred to as a coup but as a reinstatement or restoration. It was “We the People” who recovered our government by electing a lawful President to succeed the putative “President” before him. It is “We the People” that MUST ensure that a constitutionally barred candidate like Obama, never usurps the Presidency or Vice-Presidency again. For that matter, that no one usurps ANY office under the U.S. ever again.

    Stephen Hiller,
    Yes, the installation of the ineligible, identity fraud con-artist Obama as America’s putative president by the worldwide Deep State was a coup, and the biggest criminal act against American citizens and her Constitution in history…by far. And that crime is what necessitated and created the coup attempt to try to remove Trump from office before he completely reveals the truth about and acts on The Obama Fraud. Hopefully, it is not too late to prevent the truth about Barry from being spread worldwide…….even if we have to work our way through those complicit in the coup attempt to get to get President Trump out of office first…….that will lead to Obama’s usurpation and identity fraud being openly and completely revealed. For example, John Brennan will likely confess to his part in creating Obama’s forged documents..…and much more if he believes it will help save himself.

    When what’s-his-name (the guy before Trump) got elected, was that not a COUP ???

  11. Tim   Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 12:05 AM

    Does anyone suppose it’s just a “coincidence” that immediately following President Trump’s executive order to declassify investigatory documents, which might implicate the United Kingdom in an attempt to influence an American election, the Prime Minister Theresa May announced her resignation?

  12. Bob68   Friday, May 24, 2019 at 10:23 PM

    The coup trying to get Trump out of office was implemented because Hillary, the planned in 2008 after Obama continued cover, lost to the “birther” Donald Trump. All complicit fear their part in Obama’s usurpation of the presidency and it’s still on-going cover-up will be revealed and acted on. That sent them into a panic, and the panic caused mistakes which led to the uncovering of the coup. The one thing still missing is that no one, even the good guys, will discuss the actual reason why so many people would risk their careers and reputation to get Trump out of office. If it was just that they hate Trump and Trump would be so bad, they could have just waited until the voters removed Trump in 2020. Obviously, it’s a lot more than that. It’s protecting themselves from being found complicit in a crime which gave America’s government and her military to the enemy by allowing and assisting an ineligible, identity fraud con-artist to be sworn-in as the putative president. This protection of Obama and those who could lead to him began the moment Barry was sworn-in back in 2009. It’s always been obvious

  13. Nikita's_UN_Shoe   Friday, May 24, 2019 at 4:22 PM

    The Trump presidency was a Constitutional (legitimate) coup d’état of the unConstitutional (illegitimate) Communist and putative presidency of the foreign interloper, aka Barack HUSSEIN Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Soebarkah.
