Fitton: Our Republic Is Under Assault
Every year I have the privilege of representing you at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). It’s an opportunity to report on the work of Judicial Watch, which is more active than ever, thanks to your steadfast support.
CPAC brings together thousands of conservative leaders and organizations. Regularly seen on C-SPAN and other national news networks, CPAC has been the premier event for any major elected official or public personality seeking to discuss issues of the day with conservatives. From presidents of the United States, including President Trump this year, to college student leaders, CPAC is the place to hear our nation’s current and future leaders.
The title of my presentation this year is “Our Republic Under Assault.” Here are the remarks I prepared:
Good afternoon CPAC, it’s great to be back. Judicial Watch is your watchdog in Washington. I’m here to remind you that transparency in government is essential to draining the Swamp. That is what we are doing every day, exposing the deep state, their allies and the corrupt liberal media that enables them.
The Republic is under assault.
You can see this through the continuing lawless attacks on President Trump.
For almost four years now we have been busy uncovering the truth about the widest – and most destructive corruption in American history, the Deep State coup against President Donald Trump.
The coup began as an attempt by high-ranking members of the Obama administration to rig the 2016 presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. Failing that, it developed into a full-blown effort to overthrow a legitimately elected president of the United States. Comey spied on Trump with Obama’s approval. And, the Deep State coup plotters in the DOJ and FBI talked of wearing wires in the Oval Office and invoking the 25th Amendment.
Then, after Robert Mueller’s special counsel partisans failed to deliver the goods, the coup cabal led by Adam Schiff, abusded whistleblower laws in one of the gravest abuses of Congress ever. President Trump was “impeached forever” as Nancy Pelosi so childishly put it. But he was also acquitted forever in the Senate.
The Mainstream Media won’t use the word “coup” to describe these continuing plots against the president, but that is what it is. And I’m using the present tense because, despite a few setbacks, the coup continues to this day.
I don’t know about you but I have little interest in moving on from the coup attack on our president, on our Constitution and our right to select our own leaders – not to have presidents selected by the Vindmans of the world.
The presidential harassment will continue. I suspect we won’t just be seeing an October surprise, there will be a September surprise, summer surprises, probably something next week, too.
