The Coup That Failed, Or, The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The impeachment of Trump was an attempted — and failed — coup that not a single Republican supported, only Democrats in the House and their Senate caucus. The impeachment of Trump was an exercise in pure partisanship and itself an abuse of power. For four years, elements of the liberal establishment — in the media, "deep state" and major institutions — have sought to destroy Trump. First, they aimed to smear him and prevent his election, and then to overturn it as having been orchestrated by the Kremlin, and then to impeach and remove him, and then to block him from running again. The damage they have inflicted upon our country's institutions is serious. Almost all now concede we have become an us vs. them nation.
