LIMBAUGH: Deep State Could Be Recruiting Retired Generals to Lead Military Coup
Radio host Rush Limbaugh issued a speculative warning to his listeners that he believes the deep state and D.C. swamp dwellers could potentially be recruiting ex-military leaders to spearhead a revolution to depose President Trump, if all else fails.
During a segment covering ex-CIA head John Brennan’s statements at the Aspen Security Forum in which Brennan called upon members of the Executive Branch to effectively execute a coup if Trump fires compromised special investigator, Robert Mueller, Limbaugh offered the opinion that the D.C. establishment has abandoned virtually all rationality and respect for the democratic process due to an overwhelming hatred of the outsider President and could be prepared to take extreme measures to ensure he is removed from office.

“A ‘coup’ is moving in there and ridding the government of the guy; a coup is moving in there and taking the guy out – that’s why many coups occur with the military, you need force behind it,” prefaced Limbaugh. “I will openly state – I am just speculating using intelligence guided by experience – these people are so far gone over what’s happened here to their precious town, to their precious power base, to their precious control of things, that I wouldn’t doubt if a couple of them are making phone calls to retired generals who still get up and put the uniform on every day… and soliciting their assistance, should it even become necessary, to lead a rebellion.”
“I have no evidence of it… but clearly there is an uncontrolled rage and irrationality in the anti-Trump forces on the left.”
“I think these people are so unhinged now, that in their minds – ‘whatever it takes, man,'” he continued. “The takeaway here is that a former CIA director is essentially asking for a coup against the sitting President if the sitting President fires the special counsel – which he is entirely, constitutionally, entitled to do.”
During a panel discussion at a globalist confab last week with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, Brennan addressed the matter of Trump firing Mueller.
