Author and historian Victor Davis Hanson was recently on FOX News and he described the fantastical stories building on the left and the US elite’s unwillingness to accept the results of the 2016 election.
Hanson described it as a soft coup.
Victor Davis Hanson: This Mueller investigation that we have is not in isolation. We had, remember, from the day Trump was elected we were told the election machines were flawed, we were going to sue. And then there was a group, remember we were told about the Electoral College, and we were told we had to overturn the electors. And then we went to the 25th Amendment that Trump was unbalanced. And that didn’t work. And then we went to the emoluments clause, he profited even though his businesses had lost a billion dollars. And then we’ve gone to Mueller. And so there’s a slow motion if you will, I don’t want to be too psychodramatic like MSNBC gets. But there is sort of a slow motion coup to overturn the elections.
Since this discussion in December, Victor Davis Hanson penned a narrative of what he sees as the end to the coup to overthrow President Trump and remove him from office – The Autopsy of a Dead Coup!
In this post Hanson begins –
The illegal effort to destroy the 2016 Trump campaign by Hillary Clinton campaign’s use of funds to create, disseminate among court media, and then salt among high Obama administration officials, a fabricated, opposition smear dossier failed.
So has the second special prosecutor phase of the coup to abort the Trump presidency failed. There are many elements to what in time likely will become recognized as the greatest scandal in American political history, marking the first occasion in which U.S. government bureaucrats sought to overturn an election and to remove a sitting U.S. president.
He continues with one of the best summaries of the Mueller witchhunt to date.
Recently Hanson was on segment on YouTube where he addressed his thoughts on the coup and on former FBI leaker and liar Andrew McCabe’s recent comments –
