    Impeachment is the mechanism for removal; or the 25th Amendment. Neither is a 'coup'. Both are constitutionally mandated procedures for removing a sitting president for either high crimes and misdemeanors or for being medically or mentally unfit.

    And if ever there were a president worthy of a coup this would be the one anyway.
    NRAMAGASHFT: When I "excuse" you it only means that I can no longer carry water for the president and you have defeated me with reason and logic. My blithe attempts at personal attacks and undermining forum civility guidelines have also failed and my only recourse is to tuck tail and run.

    Or do you have more?

    The use of words like coup, and the discussion of civil war all strike me as psyops bull****.

    It gets people to frame things in terms which are much more dire than things actually are.
    It's really bad mojo imho.

    Better to call that **** out now.
    I may be wrong.

    According to NBC, “Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”

    Removing a president via impeachment is very Constitutional. Our forefathers had the fore-sight to see that one day we might have a President that was unfit for office and the Union was in peril with each day he was in office. Impeachment provides a remedy when matters can not wait until the next election.

    Suggesting what he said was to call for a coup shows a vast ignorance on your part. A "coup" is a-Constitutional. McRaven was calling for Constitutional means for effecting change.

    Is this going to be like all the talk Trump made about locking Clinton up during his campaign, then when he won the election he stated he didn't want to hurt the Clintons?

    We currently have an impeachment process in motion, and if that fails there's an election coming up. Both of those are Constitutionally-approved ways to remove a President from office, and they are not either one a "coup."

    Just because idiots on the right wing are using terms like that doesn't mean you have to repeat their nonsense.

    Perhaps he's a patriot who honestly believes Trump is doing great long-term damage to the country and its institutions, our allies, our reputation, and is simply unfit for office. What would a patriot who believed that do if not advocate for his obviously constitutionally-approved removal from office? No patriot would remain silent if he believed that, because being silent is to be complicit.

    To save some breath to our right-wing regulars, this is just some worthless opinion from another Deep State traitor.

    If you are behind a paywall, you can also read about it here.
    - Retired Admiral William McRaven, Navy SEAL who oversaw the Osama bin Laden raid
    Trump is doing terrible things that even retired military officers recognize. Here is a short list of the things Trump is destroying:

    1. Racial quotas.
    2. Gifts to foreign dictators needing money to build weapons with which to kill US servicemen abroad.
    3. Homosexual preferences over the rights of non-homosexuals.
    4. Progressive approaches to gender, race, and religious reclassifications based upon personal feelings rather that factual or scientific reality.
    5. Protections for the murder of unborn human babies.
    6. New gun confiscation laws and rules.
    7. Political protections for democrats accused of committing crimes in office.
    8. Political protections against further investigations into past failed false allegations against Trump.
    9. Safely shelved widespread claims of democrat corruption overseas involving high ranking democrats.
    10. Scientific evidences for global warming threats requiring tens of trillions of dollar investments to avert disaster.
    And so forth
