Coup d’état - a sudden and decisive action in politics, especially one resulting in a change of government illegally or by force.
This is what McCabe said: Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told CBS News that the Department of Justice discussed whether there was enough support from members of President Donald Trump's Cabinet, including Vice President Mike Pence, to assemble the group to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office. He also admitted that he ordered an obstruction of justice investigation into Trump in order to keep the Russia investigation alive after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.
McCabe went on to say that the idea that somehow Trump colluded with Russia "was something that troubled me greatly." He said the day after he met with Trump, he told the team investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to try to figure out what their next steps should be in order to keep the investigation going.
The 25th Amendment Section 4: Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
The ability to discharge the powers and duties of his office is vague and that was the intention of the author. However, it is clear that the amendment was never intended to replace impeachment, nor was it intended to be used simply because of political differences. McCabe and members of the deep state had false suspicions that Trump had colluded with the Russian government based on a report they knew was false and was the result of a political opposition paper paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton with the intent of manufacturing false claims. McCabe and the deep state were well aware that nothing within that report was true, nevertheless, they used it to knowingly advance a false narrative.
The question that the DOJ should investigate once Barr becomes Attorney General is did McCabe and his fellow deep state members commit treason in their attempt to overthrow a duly elected President simply because they disagreed with that duly elected President politically. It was clear and evident that President Trump was very capable of discharging the duties of his office. It has become abundantly clear that members of the deep state within the DOJ and FBI had not been discharging their duties as fair and impartial servants of the government. This would be an excellent case to bring some clarity as to what the 25th amendment means when it says to discharge the powers and duties of the office.
