    Andrew McCabe admitted that he/the FBI tried to recruit cabinet members against President Trump to force him out of office.  Some are interpreting this as an attempted coup & sedition. 

    Interesting that he's admitted what many people on the Democrat side have been calling fake news for so long.

    Should he be arrested for this action?  Who else was involved?

      And thank GOD they tried to REMOVE this Putin Stooge and thank GOD we still have patriots inside to protect us from him until he's REMOVED which must be coming soon if we still have laws:: At least he'll end up in prison for his treacherous actions and crimes against humanity and not a tear will be shed:

        Come on Jake, repeatedly posting a debunked meme? That certainly taints any comment you post along with it.

          GA, The only thing around here that has been DEBUNKED is the word "Coup" in the same breath as Bozo Trump: What RJ doesn't seem to understand is that we have what's called a 25th Amendment which was inserted into our constitution to be exercised in the event someone like Donald with the help from our enemy Russia, was able to make it all the way to our oval office, and our CIA and FBI contemplating exercising this constitutional authority must be explored in this insane nightmare of an era we are forced to endure:

                Yes Randy. I believe in free speech. No matter how ridiculous, uninformed or purposefully infused with lies.  Because I have faith people are intelligent enough to see bias where it exists.

      Forced out? I don't know. Depends if actions taken by him in this attempt violated law. If he felt legal action was warranted, then no, as long as all of it was within the bounds of legal. Obviously no one agreed with him so nothing came of it.

      "Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CBS News' "60 Minutes" that he ordered obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations into President Donald Trump after a conversation with him immediately after he fired James Comey as FBI director."

      https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald … be-n971441

      How is that a coup?

      Where in the many articles from credible sources (and not right-wing blogs) does it say that McCabe tried to recruit Cabinet members?

        He did not tried to recruit anyone. However, he was part of a conversation were they speculated whether the cabinet might support it (25th amendment).

        Transcript of the interview:

        ANDREW MCCABE: Discussion of the 25th Amendment was, was simply Rod raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort.

        SCOTT PELLEY: Rosenstein was actually openly talking about whether there was a majority of the cabinet who would vote to remove the president.

        MCCABE: That's correct. Counting votes or possible votes.

        PELLEY: What seemed to be coursing through the mind of the deputy attorney general was getting rid of the president of the United States--

        MCCABE: --Well--

        PELLEY: --One way or another.

        MCCABE: I can't confirm that.  But what I can say is the deputy attorney general was definitely very concerned about the president, about his capacity and about his intent at that point in time.

          Thank goodness we have the Justice Department to guard against suspected corruption as it applies to our election system. Better to be safe than sorry..

          Agreed. Discussing cabinet member support is much different than actively "recruiting" cabinet member support or attempting a "coup".

        Promisem,

        How about the New York Times.  Don't think this is too conservative for you


        “the bureau’s director, that they discussed whether to recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office.”

        Promisem,

          What else but the contemplation of immediate REMOVAL of an illegitimate president would you expect from the CIA and FBI after realizing the stooge sitting in our oval office is acting exactly like a Russian Puppet??

          They would be NEGLIGENT if they don't try to REMOVE him:

          Mike, your comment is accurate, but it doesn't mean that the FBI attempted a "coup" or "tried to recruit cabinet members against President Trump to force him out of office".

          Cabinet member support is an automatic part of a discussion about the 25th Amendment. Actively trying to recruit is much different than discussing the possibility of recruiting.

          Likewise, the title "McCabe Admits the FBI tried to Force Trump Out" is grossly untrue based on a wide variety of media coverage.

          Even Fox News isn't that inflammatory:

          "Andrew McCabe confirms he opened the investigation into President Trump"

            Mike tends to be a bit hyperbolic, Scott.

              Randy, I don't mind his challenge. At least he is being civil, and I get what he is trying to say. It's the OP that is over the top.
