Cheney Calls Out FBI Officials Who Wanted to ‘Stop’ POTUS: ‘That Sounds an Awful Lot Like a Coup’

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) laid into statements made by FBI officials that she believes sound “an awful lot like a coup” while joining ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

Cheney expressed her concerns about the origins on the investigation into Russian election interference to host Martha Raddatz and called into question text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, which sparked concerns of political bias.

“I think what is really, crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page, who were in charge of launching this investigation, and they were saying things like, ‘We must stop this president. We need an insurance policy against this president,'” she pointed out.

Then she drove her point home.

“That in my view, when you have people who are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup, and it could well be treason, and I think that we need to know more.”

Cheney added that we also need to know what James Comey and Andrew McCabe’s “role in all this” was and called to allow Attorney General William Barr to figure out what happened.

“Think about the fact that we had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement in this nation saying that they were going to stop a duly elected president of the United States, saying they needed an insurance policy against him, that is something that simply cannot happen,” she said.

Watch her comments below:

“We have to have confidence in our law enforcement, and the attorney general has got to get to the bottom of what happened, how it was that those people were allowed to misuse and abuse their power that way,” she continued.

Cheney appears to be referring to text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page during the investigation in which they agreed they’d “stop” President Donald Trump from taking the Oval Office.

Her mention of McCabe echoes Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) concerns after the former acting FBI director revealed the agency considered invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. As IJR Red reported, he asked at the time, “Was this an attempted bureaucratic coup?”


  1. “That sounds an awful lot like a coup and it could well be treason”. Liz cuts to the chase. Nice.

  2. What are the democrats going to do when President Trump wins the re-election in 2020 ? Leave the country?, enter an asylum on their own volition?. AG needs to expose all who try to inspire in overthrowing the President. It will be abhorrent if the Deep State gets away with it.

  3. The silence on any of this in the liberal media is deafening. This is the scandal of the century and they don’t want to report it. Is that because they were complicit in the attempted to take down the president? They printed secret intelligence, bribed the FBI employees to get information and lied to the people for two years about Trumps Russian collusion.These news outlets better lawyer up as well as all those who conspired in this attempted coup.

    1. The media are no to be trusted! Period!

  4. There are definitely some weasels who should be headed to Ft. Leavenworth ASAP.

    1. Maybe AG Barr will get to work and find out who and how many were responsible. He should begin with Barry and Hillary; investigate, indict and call for the imprisonment of BOTH criminals. Then proceed on down the chain into the swamp for their comrades. LOCK ‘EM ALL UP!!

      1. Sounds like the Investigation into the illegal actions of Obama, Hillary, Holder, Lynch, upper echelon of the FBI, Clapper, Brennan, et al, has already begun. Now let the chips fall where they may.

  5. When I said bumblers I really meant idiots. Had they succeeded they would have gotten Pence.

    Remember that the elite thinks it’s so smart and so perfect. That’s why their predictions of Hillary’s victory came true. Oh wait…..

  6. “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

    These cowardly bumblers failed. Now comes the blowback on them.
