The Coup Grows By The Day. Can Trump Avoid It?
Levin Breaks Down Latest Reports On Mueller Grand Jury, FBI: 'This Is A Coup'
"This is a coup that should upset every American, Trump supporter or not."
On his radio program Thursday, Mark Levin addressed the latest reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is impaneling a grand jury for the Russia investigation and the FBI thinks they have a compelling obstruction case against President Trump. The investigation, said Levin, is essentially a "coup" against the president.
Levin began by explaining that the process involving Mueller as special counsel "has been abused" from the get-go.
"In this case, there was no underlying criminal matter at all," Levin said. "This was a counterintelligence investigation."
Levin reiterated that a counterintelligence investigation is not a criminal one, which would mean that a special counsel was not necessary in this circumstance.
He went on to highlight reports stating that the grand jury was issuing subpoenas regarding Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in hopes of obtaining damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Levin pointed out that this means that even the subpoenas are being leaked.
"Let me tell you what's going on here: they want to drag Donald Jr. in front of a grand jury and everybody else who was in that meeting – all eight of them – and see if they can find any contradictions in their testimony," said Levin, "and then apart from that meeting and apart from anything that took place in that meeting – because nothing that took place was criminal – see if they can get somebody on a 'lie.' Perjury."
In other words, they're trying to slap Trump Jr. or anyone else in the meeting with a "process crime," a crime that was committed during the process of the investigation rather than the meeting that occurred.
Levin also highlighted a report about how chief FBI officials could be testifying against President Trump and that officials think they have a compelling case of obstruction against the president.
"We're leaking the investigators' views of a potential criminal case in public to try and destroy the presidency," Levin said. "To try and build political support for ... if the Democrats take the House to impeach the president."
After reading from a report stating that former FBI Director James Comey and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top FBI officials are going to testify, Levin stated: "This is a coup."
"This is a coup that should upset every American, Trump supporter or not," Levin said.
Levin later added that these reports indicate that "Comey's inner circle" from the FBI is responsible for these leaks to the media.
