Slow-Motion Plot to Dump Trump
by Stephen Lendman
Dark forces in Washington want him removed, things headed toward replacing him with Pence, a deep state puppet he erred in appointing as vice president. GHW Bush was smarter, choosing political lightweight Dan Quale, unqualified for any public position.
Trump's hold on the presidency is shaky. On Thursday, he tweeted "(w)ith all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!"
"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"
Long knives wanting him ousted may succeed, removing him from office by assassination the way Jack Kennedy was eliminated, resignation forced on Nixon for the wrong reasons, or a first-time in US history impeachment and conviction, ending his presidency.
He's not targeted for serious wrongdoing demanding accountability, or deplorable policies warranting strong criticism - solely because he's not entirely and easily controllable and predictable, unlike other post-JFK presidents.
During a Thursday press conference, he justifiably called alleged "collusion between (himself, his) campaign…and the Russians zero."
"(B)elieve me, there's no collusion," he said. "Russia is fine. But whether it's Russia or anybody else, my total priority…is the United States of America."
Expressing respect for former FBI director Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel, he slammed his mandate as "a witch-hunt."
Despite months of investigations, no evidence suggests Russian US election hacking or improper dealings or ties to Moscow by Trump, his team or campaign.
Yet Mueller was appointed anyway, a deplorable choice with an unstated mandate to keep the anti-Trump pot boiling - for the wrong reasons, not the right ones, the end game wanting him ousted from office.
Former FBI special agent/whistleblower Coleen Rowley blasted his appointment, explaining his longstanding deep state ties, not someone of impeccable character as falsely reported.
He was part of the false flag 9/11 coverup. In the run-up to US 2003 aggression on Iraq, he, his CIA counterpart and other intelligence heads "saluted smartly and went along," including then-US Attorney for the Southern District of New York James Comey, Rowley explained.
Mueller enforced post-9/11 police state harshness, presided over persecution of Muslims in America, the 2001 anthrax deception, and other disturbing activities demanding condemnation, not praise.
Rowley called him and likeminded US officials "sycophants to power," complicit "in numerous wrongful abuses of power…"
As special counsel, will he go all-out for Trump's removal, providing further service to America's deep state, wanting nothing impeding their monstrous agenda?
