Once it became crystal clear that theÂ Deep StateÂ operatives loyal to Barack Obama and to the preservation of the Washington political establishment had conspired against POTUS Donald Trump in an unprecedented attempt to remove him from office,Â we began using the â€œTâ€ word to describe their behavior.
â€œTâ€ as inÂ treason. What else do you call it when members of your own government secretly plot to overthrow you?
But up to now, only this publication and precious few others dared to use the T-word to describe the actions of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, Bruce Ohr, Loretta Lynch, James Clapper, John Brennan, and even President Obama himselfÂ in launching â€œSpygate.â€
That has changed. POTUS Trump himself has now used the word in an interview with reporters at the White House on Tuesday.
During a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the president was asked what he thought about the recently-released report from special counselÂ Robert Mueller, who cleared him of â€œRussian collusionâ€ allegations (because it was always aÂ hoaxÂ devised by Obama, Comey, et. al).
AsÂ The Gateway PunditÂ reported, POTUS addressed the issue for about six minutes, hitting, especially, Democrats who remain in denial after Muellerâ€™s findings, continuing to insist â€” at risk to our countryâ€™s political stability â€” that the presidentÂ didÂ â€˜collude.â€™
At the end of his remarks, the president declared, â€œPeople did things that were very, very bad for our country and very, very illegal.Â And you can even say treasonous.â€
Trump also lashed out at Democrats who are now demanding that, after two years of this witch hunt, the entire Mueller report should be releasedÂ in full,Â unredactedÂ â€” which violates the law and current Justice Department policies especially because doing so could expose untold numbers of people to embarrassing invasions of their privacy.
Trump has now used the word so its time for prosecutions
â€œItâ€™s a disgrace,â€ the president said, adding that he has â€œtotal respectâ€ for Attorney General William Barr, who must now decide what portions of the report to release and in what form.
â€œAnything we give [Democrats] will never be enough,â€ POTUS continued. â€œItâ€™s a 400-page report, right? We could give them 800 pages and it wouldnâ€™t be enough.â€
Trump noted that the Spygate â€œplotâ€ has actually gone on longer than two years, adding that itâ€™s been percolating in various forces since he â€œcame down the escalatorâ€ at Trump Tower in New York City in June 2015 to announce his candidacy. He also mentioned the â€œinsurance policyâ€ discussed by Page, Strzok, and McCabe, which testimony has indicated wasÂ theÂ plot to oust Trump in case he beat Hillary Clinton.
Remember that? Fox NewsÂ reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: â€œText-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): â€œI want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andyâ€™s office-that thereâ€™s no way he gets elected-but Iâ€™m afraid we canâ€™t take that risk.Itâ€™s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 youâ€™re 40.â€

During Trump’s interview a reporter, off-camera, actually brought up a good point: He noted that back in the 1990s, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who is now chairman of the House Oversight Committee, was opposed to the unredacted release of then-independent Counsel Kenneth Starrâ€™s report on the various scandals involving Bill and Hillary Clinton â€” but now he says the fullÂ MuellerÂ report should be released.Â
Trump then noted that Nadler, House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and other Democrats were â€œdisappointedâ€ by the Mueller report, but he added:
I guarantee you they go into a room, between Nadler, Schiff and the group, and they laugh like hell at how they kept this thing going for two years. They laugh like hell. And I hope that this investigation now, which is finishedâ€¦I hope they now go and take a look at the origins [of the Mueller probe]â€¦where it started, how it started, who started itâ€¦whether itâ€™s McCabe or Comey or a lot of themâ€¦how high up in the White House did it goâ€¦
Now that the president has used the T-word to describe the Deep State coup attempt against him, itâ€™s time for AG Barr to prosecute them all for what they tried to do. America canâ€™t be turned into a banana republic with stealth bombers and nuclear weapons.Â
