This is CNBC reporting:
Shocking, but finally competent report coming from the MSM!




The attempts to push Trump out of office may be illegal.


I think you may have some terms mixed up here.

The news is addressing the multiple threatened impeachment proceedings. Impeachment is not a coup. A coup is when some group takes over the whole government by force.

Yes, some of those trying for impeachment have way overstepped their bounds and some of it is "reaching." Part of it is due to Trump's bizarre behavior -- hiding whether he's divested himself, hiding his tax returns walking back on campaign promises, ruling by Executive Order (much like a dictator) rather than with and through the Congress.

No one is calling for (for example) Joseph Dunford (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) to round up all our armed forces declare martial law, arrest Trump and his family and throw them in jail along with Pence, Spicer, and everyone else.

THAT would be a coup.

Impeachment is a different thing altogether.

If what Comey says is true, and I am 99% sure it is, what is that? Obstruction of justice. I pointed out before, trump says he did not URGE Comey. He does not say he did not suggest, or ask him to. In trumps eyes, that may be why he himself believes what he is saying. Like I said also its the "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" only MUCH more serious!



Comey says?

Which time? The time he was asked, under oath before Congress, and said there was no attempt to obstruct justice or the time he supposedly wrote about that conversation that took place before his testimony in a memo no one has actually seen?

Here's a little food for thought:

The Democrats went out and focus-grouped and poll tested the idea of impeachment.

Now all of a sudden, three of the most prominent Democrat voices are calling for restraint in the impeachment talk.

What does that tell everyone?

The term 'silent coup' might be accurate though.
No one knows until all the information comes out.

We still don't have all of the information from the JFK assassination yet, they even 'lost' the brain during the autopsy, so no one should hold their breath.

His arrogance and sloppiness has been enough to make him a successful business man, because politician he is not.

That is the reason he gives a finger to the swamp snakes in politics including the most poisonous within his own party.

That have been selling the nation for foreign favors.

This change in politics do not fill good and do not make the career political crap in Washington feel comfortable and easy, they are forced to work they are forced to do what an outsider is asking them to do, how dare Trump do that to the political elite that has been groomed to be served and no to serve.

Yes they want Trump out in any way or form they can.

The snakes knows that their corruption is just one step away from been unveiled and they are scare so Trump is fair game to keep the population away from them.

No mix up. If you read I put in a paragraph.

That is use of a literary separation.

All of the leaks amount to an attempt to remove the president.

To try and separate which leaks are sedition, from those that
are just yellow journalism, impossible.

Since there are no sources named, and zero proof.

Man all you conservatives prove on a regular basis that you only paid lip service to the 1st Amendment, but you really want to suppress the free press and institute state run, pro-government media.

Some people are very threatened by white males
that possess great confidence in their own abilities.

After 8 years of Obama pandering to the world
with his apology tour...

I wonder when people are going to wake up and realized that Obama was the worst president we ever had in his last 4 years in power, when he gave the finger to the people and decided to accommodate anybody else of the American voters.

Maybe once Trump finishes dismantling
all of the Obama atrocities, and the country is far better off?

I won't be holding my breath...some people would rather
live in a fantasy world with an imaginary outcome
that never happened and never will....

Yet you attack the liberal press because they say things you don't like and accuse them of being traitors. Your agenda is obvious, mate. The 1st Amendment and free press isn't important to you.

"What does that tell everyone?"

Probably indicates a major "poll" shift !!

Its not really free speech when you manufacture BS stories/memos and spread them along like wild fires with your other dipsh*t media friend news outlets... From NY Times, to CNN, to MSNBC, to all the other crap publications you liberals love, they all play and love the anonymous source game.. Heaven forbid one of their "leakers/sources" ever puts a name behind a claim... Just total manufactured BS from your left side party...
