And installing Mike Pence as president

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says the deep state is still intent on removing Donald Trump from office and installing Mike Pence as president.

“Trump’s political capital has been openly looted for months now by GOP, CIA, Netanyahu, Goldman Sachs, etc. Game is clearly to extract as many unpopular positions as possible (e.g tax cuts for the super rich), push the resulting political corpse to Mueller & install Mike Pence,” tweeted Assange.

Assange’s gloomy prediction is contradicted to some extent by Pat Buchanan, who believes that recent revelations about the partisan corruption within both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email investigations have put the establishment on the back foot, giving Trump a chance to re-assert himself.

“Trump is not Nixon, who, like Charles I, accepted his fate and let the executioner’s sword fall with dignity,” writes Buchanan. “If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.”

“In the words of the great Jerry Lee Lewis, there’s gonna be a “whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on.”

Over the course of this week it was revealed that FBI agent Peter Strzok spoke of an “insurance policy” months before the election in case Trump won, which pundits agree was almost certainly to sabotage his administration with claims of Russian collusion.

Strzok was also instrumental in protecting Hillary Clinton from being indicted as a result of her email scandal, changing the the first draft of FBI Director Comey’s statement that described Clinton as “grossly negligent,” to the far weaker “extremely careless”.

As we document in the video below, more than a year after Trump was elected, the political class is still determined to remove him from office.

If the hysteria surrounding the ‘Russian collusion’ investigation fails, an effort will be launched to exploit the ferocity of outrage surrounding the #MeToo movement, with numerous women waiting in the wings to claim (almost certainly on fraudulent grounds) that Trump sexually assaulted them.
