Former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified in October before the House Judiciary and Government Reform and Oversight Committees, and the newly-released transcripts from the hearings indicate that members of President Donald J. Trump’s own cabinet were bucking to have him removed from office under the 25th Amendment.
“According to Baker, Rosenstein and two cabinet members were ‘onboard with this concept’ of using the 25th Amendment as part of a coup to remove the president from office. Baker said he did not know who the two cabinet members were,” said The Federalist’s Sean Davis, posting a screenshot of the testimony.
The full testimony can be read here.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) was pressing Baker on internal pressures from the FBI, the nation’s highest law enforcement agency, in conjunction with the Department of Justice to remove a duly elected president. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had suggested wearing a wire in order to take Trump down.
“To the best of my recollection, it was the same kind of thing I described with respect to the wire, that I was being told by some combination of Andy McCabe and Lisa Page that, in a conversation with the Deputy Attorney General, he had stated that he — this was what was related to me — that he had at least two members of the President’s Cabinet who were ready to support, I guess you would call it, an action under the 25th Amendment,” Baker said.
Further, Baker implied during his testimony that the FBI and DOJ had contemplated numerous ways of removing Trump from office – not just by using the 25 Amendment. Meadows pressed on what those methods included, and Baker’s counsel instructed him not to respond.
“Congressman Meadows, at this time, we’ll instruct the witness not to answer. I anticipate that you will ask us to seek clarity from our chain of command in reference to this question,” Baker’s counsel said.

FBI Spooks Cover for ANTIFA Terrorists, Absolving Them From Their Role in Nationwide Riots
The FBI is running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is claiming that there is “no intelligence” indicating that ANTIFA had a role in fomenting riots that have gripped the country.
This directly contradicts President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr, who immediately assigned the blame toward ANTIFA for the violence that is happening nationwide.
“The violence instigated and carried out by ANTIFA and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” Barr said.
Meanwhile, Trump took to Twitter to announce that “the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.”
The FBI’s Washington D.C. field office reportedly claims that they have “no intelligence indicating ANTIFA involvement/presence” in the riots. They also claim that “CHS [Confidential Human Source] canvassing, open source/social media partner engagement, and liaison” absolve ANTIFA from any blame.
However, the FBI is assigning blame to right-wingers for mean words allegedly made in social media groups. They claim individuals on social media “called for far-right provocateurs to attack federal agents” and “use automatic weapons against protesters.” The DHS also claims that far-right social media posts “incited followers to engage in violence and start the ‘boogaloo’ — a term used by some violent extremists to refer to the start of a second Civil War — by shooting in a crowd.”
Big Tech is working with the deep state to cover for ANTIFA terrorists and spread the conspiracy theory that white nationalists are somehow responsible for the violence:
Social media giant Twitter has resorted to blaming a white nationalist group that no longer exists for fomenting riots that have resulted in death and destruction throughout the country.
One Twitter account, @ANTIFA_US, was lampooning the anti-American terrorist group with various posts mocking their extremist stances. They had written that the terrorist group was planning to “move into the residential areas” and “take what’s ours.”
Twitter, which has been known to harbor hate speech from ANTIFA domestic terrorists for many years, is blaming the defunct Identity Evropa (IE) group for the parody account that has since been removed from the platform. IE was officially disbanded in March 2019…
The American Identity Movement (AIM), a group that was founded to disavow the controversial history of IE, released a statement to address the phony reports running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.
“The unsubstantiated assertion was made without citing any alleged evidence upon which Twitter based such a dubious and inflammatory statement. No effort was made by Twitter to verify its contentions. The issuance of such an unlikely claim without any effort to verify it would be the height of irresponsibility even in normal times,” AIM wrote.
“There appears to be an organized effort by partisan politicians, advocacy journalists, and left-wing activists to shield the rioters who have shaken the nation from coast to coast in recent days by pushing a kooky conspiracy theory that “white supremacists” have infiltrated the rioters and are the “real” source of the arsons and attacks on policemen,” they continued.
“Neither Identity Evropa nor American Identity Movement have advocated, incited, or participated in violence or the fabrication of Antifa Twitter accounts. In addition to moral objections to such behavior, there would be no point in concocting such tweets when social media is replete with Antifa approval, incitement to and participation in such actions,” AIM added.
The sorcerers in Big Tech, the fake news media, and the Democrat Party are trying to invert reality with devious propaganda so the Soros-funded ANTIFA collective can avoid consequences for their many terror campaigns.
