Remember when 10 former secretaries of defense posted that op-ed...

...about the inappropriate use of the military to decide an election? (see the story here: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/defense-secretaries-letter-warning-trump-signed-days/story?id=75036788)

I wonder if in addition to all the alarming behaviors they were observing from the Trump admin, some of them also got wind of the unsigned executive order being discussed in the media now where the military seizing ballot boxes was proposed. Might be some interesting witnesses in those secretaries.

This is the latest twist on GOP strategy to turn the nation fascist...

"Gaetz posited that the events that led up to the sex-trafficking investigation were likely part of a government "operation" to take him down."

This is the same sort of wackiness old Newt Gingrich demonstrated on Faux News and Bannon offered on his show. This "gonna lock 'em up when we take charge" strategy is no joke and they will definitely do their best to do it, to hell with the rule of law. They aren't bothered much by the law anyway. They first project the behaviors onto others (nothing new there), when they have already embraced such behaviors in their own methods. This "investigate the investigators" threat is a screaming red alert to the rule of law and should alarm every American who gives a shit about democracy. Will we take heed? And what can we, as citizen do about it?

The changing of the guard so late in the term is evidence of Trump planning the coup...

...with intention.

"On November 9, 2020, Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper for insufficient loyalty and replaced him with Christopher Miller, who then served as Acting Defense Secretary. Trump also installed Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Michael Flynn ally, to the position of Undersecretary for Intelligence and Security. Trump made other changes at the Pentagon, including installing a man who had called for Trump to declare martial law in a top position.

B Donnie told her to get rid of some stuff because she can't take it with them.
