The news site equated the actions of James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and even Hillary Clinton to acts of treason, for they were literally designed to drive him from office after he won the presidency.
A coup attempt, in other words, and very clearly so:
Treason is not a word that anyone should use lightly, but based on recent revelations regarding the “Spygate” operation aimed at undermining Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and his presidency, it is a term that seems very fitting to describe acts and actions taken by several Obama-era officials, including the former president himself.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, a sitting member of Congress — GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming — also used the word “treason” to describe those actions, as reported by NewsTarget.
“We had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement … saying that they were going to stop a duly-elected president of the United States,” Cheney told ABC News. “That sounds an awful lot like a coup and it could well be treason.”
Now, another learned individual who also happens to be a former U.S. attorney, Joe diGenova — long a critic of the “Spygate” operation against POTUS Trump by the Obama-led Deep State — is using the “T” word as well.
In an interview over the Memorial Day weekend, diGenova said there is currently a “full-scale war” going on within the federal law enforcement and intelligence communities between forces who were responsible for launching and perpetuating the Spygate coup attempt and those attempting to get to the bottom of it and expose the co-conspirators, The Gateway Pundit reported.
“When Bill Barr become attorney general the president said, ‘See what you can do, see if you can get to the bottom of what happened during the campaign,’” diGenova began.
“Bill Barr tried to do that and you will recall from his interview with FOX, he said he now had more questions than he had when he started. Chris Wray the current FBI Director was stonewalling the current Attorney General Bill Barr on disclosure of certain information about FBI conduct. It got very, very heated, so and, Gina Haspel, the current CIA Director, was also resisting disclosure of certain information,” he continued.

At that point, diGenova — citing sources known to him — says the AG “got fed up, went to the president, and said, ‘I can’t answer your question and here’s why.'"
“The president said, ‘Fine.’ Twenty-four hours later the order [to declassify all documents related to Spygate] came out,” diGenova added. “This is a full-scale war between the attorney general of the United States and, believe it or not, another FBI director who thinks he’s James Comey.”
DiGenova went on to describe Wray’s appointment as another misfire by the president, albeit an unintentional one. “Christopher Wray is a disaster,” he said.
“You are watching the quintessential Washington power battle. Here’s the problem for the agencies, the FBI and the CIA. They have one distinct disadvantage. They can leak to the [Washington Post] and the [New York Times] but they do not have subpoena power and Bill Barr does,” diGenova continued.
“We are headed for a gigantic, gigantic fight,” he predicted. “The intelligence community, including the FBI, is in full resistance in disclosing what they did during the presidential campaign. … Christopher Wray is now standing in the way of history.
“Make no mistake about it, Christopher Wray has become an enemy of the people.”
There is also this. The deep state is powerful, connected, and resourceful. Some say collectively, the deep state is the most powerful entity in the United States, surpassing all branches of government and the president.
We truly are living in dangerous times. The president may have to resort to unconventional methods, like empowering the military, in order to bring to justice those who sought to subvert our government with covert and overt acts of treason.
