The Coup Against Trump Has Failed — Is the Worm About to Turn?

President Donald Trump smiles as he announces Judge Neil Gorsuch as his choice for Supreme Court Justice.

It is now obvious that for two and a half years, Democrats and their friends in the deep state have been peddling an elaborate hoax: the spurious charge that President Trump conspired or colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election.

The entire enterprise from the beginning was always about defeating Trump -- either by planting smears in the media in 2016 to prevent his election or if that didn't succeed, by doubling down on the investigation in an effort to keep the president from uncovering their election-year espionage malfeasance.

But the honey-badger president didn't care and said he did nuthin' wrong and didn't try to stop it. So the "rigged investigation" led by "13 angry Democrats" lumbered on for nearly two years, racking up several process crimes and unrelated financial crimes in the process -- all  while trying the nation's patience.

Then The New York Times' "bombshell" report last Friday confirmed that the FBI's case against the president was scandalously flimsy. 

Trump’s former attorney John Dowd told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on his radio show Monday that he believes the president was facing a "coup" and accused Mueller, former FBI Director James "Cardinal" Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe of conspiring against the president.

“Little did I know that it appears that they were all in it together,” Dowd said. “I mean Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, McCabe, the whole crowd and they were out to get this president no matter what. I don't think they sincerely believed anything about Russia.”

“This is our worst nightmare that someone with that kind of power would then decide to go after the president. I mean, it's a coup,” Dowd added. “That's what it is — an attempted coup by Comey and his crowd. And the evidence is all over there. I take the New York Times article as an admission of their bad behavior.”

Dowd isn't alone.

Most people, except a few paid trolls and Democrats with political axes to grind, have figured out there is no "there" there. Mueller is reportedly preparing to show his hand, and it's almost certain to be "anti-climatic," sources close to the investigation say.

It's all over but the crying.

And liberal tears will indeed flow if Mueller's final report comes out and it contains no bombshells and is unable to prove that President Trump colluded, conspired, schemed, or plotted with the Russians to win the 2016 election. It's also unlikely that he'll be accused of obstruction for firing Comey, an absurdly weak pretext for an investigation if ever there was one.

If instead of Russian collusion all that comes out of this is a crummy FEC violation related to hush-money payments to Trump's former mistresses, Democrats will be very disappointed.
