Dick Morris, a political commentator and former top adviser to Bill Clinton, believes the Democrat’s “phony scandal” alleging President Trump colluded with Russian officials to win the 2016 presidential election is more than just a media game.
During an interview with New York AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Morris said the “illusion of collusion” was concocted by Deep State actors to topple President Trump because they are still upset that Hillary Clinton lost the election.
CIA plot to “topple” Trump
When asked to describe the severity of the threat facing Trump from Deep State actors, Morris suggested there was a plot to overthrow him from the presidency.
“It’s an attempt at a coup d’etat” that is meant to “topple” Trump from being president of the United States, Morris told host John Catsimatidis.
Morris said, “The main thing that is going on, though, in politics is really an attempt at a coup d’etat, which is essentially what this whole Russian stuff is.”
Morris continued: In fact, I call it the illusion of collusion. The whole Democratic party is so taken up with the idea that Hillary [Clinton] lost the election because of collusion between Trump and [Vladimir] Putin.
Morris added that the plot to remove Trump from office has been a dual effort between the mainstream media and Deep State actors in the intelligence community.
He explained: I think the whole thing has been cooked up in an effort to topple Trump from power. It amounts really to a coup d’etat between the intelligence community on the one hand and the media on the other.
