Now that the Mueller Investigation has ended the narrative has completely shifted. Speaking to reporters at the White House this week, Trump characterized the Russia probe as an attempted coup.
The New York Post reports:
Trump calls Robert Mueller’s probe an ‘attempted coup’
President Trump on Wednesday called the probe into Russian election meddling “an attempted coup” that amounted to “treason” in his harshest language yet targeting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“This was an attempted coup. This was an attempted takedown of a president, and we beat them. We beat them. We fight back, and you know why we fight back? Because I knew how illegal this whole thing was. It was a scam,” the president said outside the White House before boarding Marine One for the first leg of a fundraising trip to Texas.
It was apparently the first time Trump had used the word “coup” to describe the nearly two-year investigation, though his surrogates have made the charge in the past.
The president then called for Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the probe, which he has repeatedly claimed was a “hoax” and “Witch Hunt!” cooked up by Hillary Clinton and her supposed “deep state” supporters in the Justice Department — saying there was “a hunger” in the country to pursue that probe…
“They knew it, too. And they got caught, and what they did was treason. What they did was terrible. What they did was against our Constitution and everything we stand for. So, hopefully, that will happen,” the president continued.

Trump is right. This absolutely was an attempted coup.
Rush Limbaugh talked about this yesterday:
Trump Calls Out the Coup
The president claims he hasn’t seen the report, hasn’t seen the summary, hasn’t seen anything, but he’s obviously confident enough now to go out and call it what it was. By the way, I think it’s ongoing. This is a point that I have continued to make. This is not, it never has been, an investigation. It is an attempt to overturn the election results of 2016 and get rid of Trump. And that effort is underway, it’s ongoing, and it isn’t gonna stop.
Now, there is gonna be some accountability for the people that were responsible for this, and there’s gonna be a lot of quaking in the boots for a lot of people at the FBI and some of the intelligence agencies, Brennan and Clapper and the media is gonna be included in this. But it’s not gonna stop them from attempting to ruin or damage Donald Trump. But running around calling it what it is, this is language that legitimate members of the Washington establishment do not use.
Even the victims of these kinds of political plays are not to ever accurately describe what happened. If you’re an acknowledged member of the establishment and for any reason the establishment turns on you, you are to take it. You are to deal with whatever they dish out. And if they fail to take you out, you are not to gloat about it, and you’re not to call them out on it. You are to accept that they failed and move on.
And Trump is not doing any of that. He’s calling them out for who they are, what they did, how they did it, and he’s not gonna stop until everybody knows.
This is going to end very badly for the people behind the conspiracy.
As it should.
