This Latest Trump-Russia Leak Smells Like a Political Coup

Yesterday, Seraphic Secret wrote that President Trump is the target of of liberal blood libels. For the obtuse, this is a metaphor. The Blood Libel was born as a medieval Christian charge that Jews killed Christian children in order to extract their blood for the baking of Passover Matzo. This grotesque narrative was used to justify Jew-hatred, forced conversion, rape, torture, the wholesale slaughter of Jews, and of course the theft of their property.

The Trump blood libels are the endless stream of stories about President Trump that are designed to prove that he is unfit for office, that he is a traitor, that his election is illegitimate because somehow he colluded with the Russians in the American ballot box. These stories are designed to engineer the President’s impeachment.

My good friend Jake Novak, NBC.com senior columnist, takes my idea one step further and writes that this latest Russian blood libel against President trump is part of a political coup by the Democrat party.

There is, indeed, a bombshell of a story coming out of the news that President Donald Trump revealed sensitive information during his White House meeting with Russian officials last week. But it’s not that President Trump committed any crime. The really alarming news is that the duly-elected President of the United States appears to be the target of a political coup.

First, let’s be clear: President Trump has been sloppy, arrogant, and just plain misguided plenty of times during his short tenure in office — including the way he handled the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the hiring and firing of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. And if he did unnecessarily compromise the source of the sensitive information he shared with the Russians, shame on him.

But a president cannot be removed from office for arrogance and sloppiness. The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.

    First, during his White House meeting in the Oval Office with the two Russian officials (one of which has publicly been accused of being a spy, and the other Putin’s closest advisor) last week, the President of the US, has the authority to declassify any information he deems fit. Next, to be clear he disclosed “Classified” information, not as reported by Jake Novak. There is a difference between Trump revealing ‘sensitive’ information and ‘Classified’ information. While Donald J. Trump has not committed an ‘Impeachable’ offence, he has violated the trust and put in harm’s way the operative of the third party country that supplied the information and put into danger the methods used to obtain the information. President Trump is a danger to this Country and has to learn to follow the script of the advisors he has appointed to prevent future damage. All too often the President, plays to the audience for what can only be described as ego, he must start acting as a responsible US representative, rather than a TV Star.

      The real question, of course, is whether any of the reports are true. If you take them at face value, he may have been careless. The problem is that there were only four people at that meeting and all of them deny the report. So the source of the report is either working from hearsay or from fiction. Or perhaps he’s the subject of the Canary Trap (see Tom Clancy).

      “President Trump is a danger to this Country and has to learn to follow the script of the advisors he has appointed to prevent future damage. ”

      Yes, let the Deep State run things as they have been doing for years. Maybe he could get Valerie Jarrett out of her bunker in Obama’s rented mansion headquarters to run his Iran policy. Seth Rich could not be reached for comment on the rest of Hillary’s plans.
