A novel (and subsequent movie) about a military coup against the President of the United States was called “Seven Days in May.” It has now been confirmed we had a real “eight days in May” this year.
This appears to be a genuine attempt at a “velvet coup d’etat.”
Once upon a time, liberals would be terrified by the idea that an unelected national security state would collude to undo the will of the people and attempt to void a democratically elected President.
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.-Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes
Or, to put it another way, Former FBI Director McCabe, whose wife took a truckload of campaign cash from a top Clinton donor and confidant, colluded with Clinton campaign contractors and the foreign bagman of a sanctioned Russian oligarch to try and take down a duly elected U.S. president.
Trying to use the 25th Amendment to try and circumvent the Election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing…which happens in third world countries. You have to obey the law. This is an attack on our system & Constitution. Alan Dershowitz.
