Impeaching Trump Would Establish ‘Intelligence Community Veto Over Elections’

Breitbart
BY Joshua Caplan
14 Oct 2019

Excerpt:

Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi reframes the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry — and its latest development in the arrest of two associates of Rudy Giuliani — as a “permanent coup” against President Trump playing out more slowly than coups he has experienced firsthand in other nations.

Taibbi’s article comes after he criticized corporate media’s framing of the Deep Stater as a non-partisan “whistleblower,” despite being a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden in the White House.

From Taibbi’s newsletter:

The men who are the proxies for Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani in this story are asserting that “official channels” have been corrupted. The forces backing impeachment, meanwhile, are telling us those same defendants are obstructing a lawful impeachment inquiry.



My discomfort in the last few years, first with Russiagate and now with Ukrainegate and impeachment, stems from the belief that the people pushing hardest for Trump’s early removal are more dangerous than Trump. Many Americans don’t see this because they’re not used to waking up in a country where you’re not sure who the president will be by nightfall. They don’t understand that this predicament is worse than having a bad president.

The Trump presidency is the first to reveal a full-blown schism between the intelligence community and the White House. Senior figures in the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies made an open break from their would-be boss before Trump’s inauguration, commencing a public war of leaks that has not stopped.



I don’t believe most Americans have thought through what a successful campaign to oust Donald Trump would look like. Most casual news consumers can only think of it in terms of Mike Pence becoming president. The real problem would be the precedent of a de facto intelligence community veto over elections, using the lunatic spookworld brand of politics that has dominated the last three years of anti-Trump agitation.

CIA/FBI-backed impeachment could also be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If Donald Trump thinks he’s going to be jailed upon leaving office, he’ll sooner or later figure out that his only real move is to start acting like the “dictator” MSNBC and CNN keep insisting he is.

The "belief"? It's a fact that the Democrats are actively trying to overthrow a duly-elected President to seize power for themselves.

Quote

Trump stands accused of using the office of the presidency to advance political aims, in particular pressuring Ukraine to investigate potential campaign rival Joe Biden. He’s guilty, but the issue is how guilty, in comparison to his accusers.


I know... Rolling Stones reporter. He couldn't help himself. He should reread the transcript of the phone call for comprehension.

It would be interesting if this 'Rolling Stone contributing editor' would ever get this piece published in, say, "the Rolling Stone".

What sucks is that I think we're THIS close to a "pushback" a/k/a "reckoning". The left keeps pushing and pushing as if the pendulum is NEVER going to swing the other way... with a vengeance that will make HUAC of the '50s look like a campfire girls marshmallow roast in comparison. I don't want to be here when it happens; I've got my eye on a nice 52' ChrisCraft Constellation as a retirement plan and could easily offshore myself until the dust settles.
