On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” Tuesday, host Mark Levin reminded his audience about his analysis from two years ago concerning a “silent coup” against President Trump, Levin suggesting last evening that “nothing like this has ever happened before in the United States of America – Ever.”
“[W]hat Mr. Comey and what Mr. McCabe and the others were doing, was undermining the United States of America from within the government, from within the FBI, from within the Department of Justice,” stated Mark Levin. “Nothing like this has ever happened before in the United States of America – ever, ever.”
Mark Levin’s remarks came after a the case he laid out concerning a “silent coup” against President Donald Trump nearly two years ago, during his radio program, again on “Fox & Friends,” and again on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, was repeated by conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday and repeated in other news outlets to describe what Limbaugh called the “deep state” in action against President Donald Trump. “Rush Limbaugh says what happened inside the FBI and the Justice Department after Donald Trump won the presidency was a ‘silent coup’ by unelected people from the ‘Obama intelligence agencies,’” reported CNSNews.com. Mark Levin reiterated the “silent coup” phraseology back on September 7, 2018, suggesting, as reported by CNSNews.com, that “The New York Times anonymous op-ed and other efforts to attack the president and thwart his agenda ‘is a mutiny,’ ‘sabotage,’ ‘a silent coup’ that Levin has been talking about since day one.”
Below is a transcript of Mark Levin’s comments from his show on Tuesday:
“As I was watching TV a little bit over the weekend and listening to the radio in my car, it’s an amazing thing, all of a sudden everybody talking about a silent coup, isn’t it Mr. Producer? Silent coup. Silent coup. A coup d'etat. A coup.
“You know what’s very upsetting, folks? Two years ago, almost two years ago to the day – couple of weeks short – when I went on this radio program and then two days later went on ‘Fox & Friends’ on the weekend, and then two days after that went on Hannity on Fox, and laid out the case for what I called a ‘silent coup,’ that is a non-shooting coup.
“I came under brutal attack, and you know what else is amazing, very few of my friends in conservative talk radio defended me. I can count on one hand, and shame on them, because now they’re all running around talking about a coup and a silent coup as if they invented these terms. I didn’t invent them, but I applied them to what I saw taking place. And it wasn’t to be provocative. As a former chief of staff to an attorney general of the United States, who had meetings with the attorney general, the deputy attorney general, the head of the FBI, the head of the DEA and so forth and so on, when the attorney general called meetings on a regular basis, I knew that leaks were coming out of the top levels of the FBI.
“How did I know that? Am I Nostradomis? No. Am I in the prediction business? No! But it’s at the top levels of the FBI where this information would be crossing paths, nowhere else. It’s not in the bureau of prisons. It’s not in the anti-trust division. It’s not in the civil division. It’s at the FBI.
“And you folks may remember this, those of you who are loyal Levinites, when I went on the radio and when I went on TV and I laid it out, one exhibit after another using the leaks to the media by the FBI – among others. That there had been at least one FISA application, probably more; that there’d been eavesdropping, espionage activity on the president of the United States or his campaign. Obviously I didn’t have all of the particulars that we have now, but I could start to put together the general picture of what was taking place. And there was a pattern in the leaks over a period of three or four months.
“And Mr. Producer will tell you, I do my own research. I sat at my desk. I started to see this. I started to dig. I put one next to the other, next to the other. I said, ‘What the hell is going on here? We’ve got a rogue operation.’ And it was a rogue operation.
“And what Mr. Comey and what Mr. McCabe and the others were doing, was undermining the United States of America from within the government, from within the FBI, from within the Department of Justice. Nothing like this has ever happened before in the United States of America – ever, ever.
“We have never had an FBI trying to take out a duly elected president of the United States – never!”
