According to the oleaginous fired acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, within four months of President Trump’s inauguration, the leaders of our federal police were actively plotting a bureaucratic coup d’etat to rid the petulant political and media establishment of this annoying and duly elected interloper (“McCabe admits DOJ talked Trump removal, says he ordered obstruction of justice probe,” Web, Feb. 14). How chilling is that?

During the first two years of the Trump presidency, most Americans, outside of the fevered deep state swamp of Washington and the high towers of a corrupted media, enjoyed relative peace and prosperity. If Mr. Trump is a KGB agent, he’s doing a pretty good job presiding.

Mr. McCabe, according to the DOJ inspector general, committed perjury in order to advance himself and obstruct a criminal inquiry. At least soon-to-be-imprisoned Michael Cohen was a hack lawyer, not a high official in the FBI, when he did those very same things. Now Mr. McCabe is a defrocked careerist peddling yet another book in the tiresome anti-Trump canon. His tome should fit nicely on the bookshelf between Stormy Daniels’ and Omarosa Manigault Newman’s books and should be accorded the same level of credibility.
