A constitutional attorney says the Department of Justice-led coup attempted against President Donald Trump was really thwarted by our Founder Fathers.
Right-wing claims of a "Deep State" conspiracy have been predictably mocked by the Left, but that denial has turned into chest-thumping declarations that it is the patriotic duty of Deep Staters to fight Trump for the sake of the country.
Enter now-former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe (pictured above), who declared in a "60 Minutes" interview that top DOJ officials plotted against Trump over concerns over Russian influence, even discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office on more than one occasion.
Matt Barber, co-founder and chief counsel of Christian Civil Rights Watch, says the U.S. Constitution states a sitting president can only be removed for committing "high crimes and misdemeanors" that could lead to impeachment.
"That's it," Barber advises. "That's the only avenue provided by the United States Constitution to move out a president, and that is done through the two houses of Congress."
Regarding the 25th Amendment, which was added in the 1960s, Barber tells OneNewsNow that the sitting president must be incapacitated, such as suffering from a traumatic brain injury.
The Trump-hating media has covered that angle too, claiming that Trump is literally insane and unfit for office, but Barber says the Founding Fathers wisely set up an executive branch to prevent such coup attempts.
President Trump, meanwhile, used Twitter to denounce the "treasonous" behavior of DOJ officials who secretly discussed how to get him out of office.
Barber says McCabe's description of that conspiracy, such as wearing a wire to record Trump, is a "bombshell" admittance by a top FBI official.
