Update on the coup attempt against President Trump

You get 'em, big boy.
The coup attempt against President Trump has picked up speed with continuing abuses of the FBI, the courts, high-powered rifles, and the constitution.

Today, the FBI.

Say what? The FBI gave an utterly bizarre update on its investigation into an attempt to assassinate Republican members of Congress. the takeaway of the briefing was characterized well by the Associated Press headline: “FBI: Gunman who shot congressman had no target in mind.” The Associated Press reported the FBI:
  • believes the gunman “had no concrete plan to inflict violence” against Republicans,
  • “had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why,”
  • believes he may have just “happened upon” the baseball game the morning of June 14, and that the attack appeared “spontaneous,”
  • are unclear on the “context” of Hodgkinson’s note with six names of members of Congress,
  • does not believe that photographs of the baseball field or other sites “represented surveillance of intended targets,” and
  • “painted a picture of a down-on-his-luck man with few future prospects.”
In fact, USA Today went with “FBI offers portrait of troubled Alexandria shooter with ‘anger management problem’” for their headline, since that’s what the FBI emphasized in the briefing.

The Donald needs to get his own FBI director.
