Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said “there were forces within the White House” that pushed back at former President Donald Trump’s claim that he won the 2020 presidential election.
Asked what “shocked” him the most from his committee’s interview of Trump’s former attorney Jeffrey Rosen, Durbin replied, “Just how directly personally involved the president was, the pressure he was putting on Jeffrey Rosen. It was real, very real, and it was very specific. This president is not subtle when he wants something. The former president is not subtle when he wants something. It’s a good thing for America we had a person like Rosen in that position, who withstood the pressure.”
“I also say that there were forces within the White House who were also pushing back against the president’s wild views,” Durbin ranted, not specifying what those “forces” were, but clearly he meant what Democrats deny even exists, which is the Deep State that worked tirelessly to drive Trump out of office.
CNN’s Dana Bash then posed the leading question, “Is what you’re seeing and describing an attempted coup?”
Durbin said breathlessly, “It was leading up to that process.”
Nonsense. Donald Trump neither attempted nor planned a coup, for God’s sake. The only people who seized power at the White House and squelched legitimate election results were the Democrat voter frauds who planted senile Joe Biden in the Oval Office.
