Did Democrat Steve Cohen Call for Military Coup Against President Trump?
Everybody’s a critic after Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. But Democrat Rep Steve Cohen called for the military to stop the President. (He denies that’s what he said, by the way). But here’s the screenshot:
Please note: Trump never said – even once- that he trusted Putin over the US military.
From Democrats to Republicans (and the usual Media circus), the Trump-haters were out in force to bash, smash, and try to take down the President, at least one of whom labelled what he said “treasonous.”
Cohen has recently been tweeting ridiculous things such as Peter Strzok deserving a “purple heart” for his testimony. He had to apologize for disrespecting both the military and veterans in that remark. He also threatened that Trump would end up “sullied” like Dr Ronny Jackson. Cohen is the one that should be removed from office.
So does Trump have a reason for not fully trusting the claims of the “intelligence community?” Here’s one from the intelligence community -former head of the CIA:
Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???

And the Trump hating Jeff Flake got in on the bashing:
I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful.

After listening to the entire press conference, and going through the transcripts of both men…neither said anything remotely bad, either about the other or about their respective nations. What was extremely obvious was that they had a WIDE gulf between viewpoints. But of course, just the mere fact that Trump was there made the left AND the right angry.
Trump actually said this, and because he sounded skeptical of the claims, liberals lost their minds:
“So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.
And what he did is an incredible offer. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer. OK?”

Putin: Where did you get this idea that President Trump trusts me or I trust him? He defends the interests of the United States of America, and I do defend the interests of the Russian Federation.
We do have interests that are common. We are looking for points of contact. There are issues where our postures diverge, and we are looking for ways to reconcile our differences, how to make our effort more meaningful.
We should not proceed from the immediate political interests that guide certain political powers in our countries. We should be guided by facts.
Could you name a single fact that would definitely prove the collusion? This is utter nonsense, just like the president recently mentioned…
The idea that Trump wasn’t “forceful” enough in a press conference owes to the fact that the “press” has been hostile to everything he says or does. We do not know what he said to Putin behind closed doors, but both parties stated that he brought up all the issues involved. Did he yell and scream at Putin and demand that he stop his actions? Both parties said the issues were discussed in a “business-like” atmosphere.
It is impossible for this President to work normally in the current atmosphere of deep-state/Democrat/anti-Trump/leftist interference. Which is better, trying to find common ground or constant confrontation, an olive branch or a nuclear war? If we listen to the Democrats, they prefer war.
