Attorney General Barr must investigate Democrats’ failed coup

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves, and, under a just God, cannot long retain it.” The quote, by Abraham Lincoln, while he was referring to slavery, applies to the Democratic cabal who ran an attempted coup on candidate, then president Trump.

This fact is without precedent in this country’s history, baring the assassination of President Lincoln. Now that the Mueller report is complete, the investigation promised by Attorney General Barr into the initiation and provenance of the coup attempt could have profound implications for at least one and possibly two past administrations. Jail time is not out of the realm of possibility.

If we can keep the Democrats and other Trump Derangement Syndrome types from derailing the investigation (not an easy task) we may come out with a clearer understanding of just how a sitting president’s Justice Department started a spying scam on candidate Trump’s campaign. We know the why, it was misdirection and deception and the need to keep Trump out of office, but we still need to pin down the who and exactly how.

While the Democratic House is wasting time on continuing investigations of the president, I would like to take this opportunity to point out the 3.2 percent GDP growth achieved last quarter and say “Thank you, Mr. President”! We the deplorables who voted for you, this country’s middle class, appreciate your efforts on the behalf of Americans.
