AFTER DONALD TRUMP was elected forty-fifth president of the United States, the operation designed to undermine his campaign transformed. It became an instrument to bring down the commander in chief. The coup started almost immediately after the polls closed.


Hillary Clinton’s communications team decided within twenty-four hours of her concession speech to message that the election was illegitimate, that Russia had interfered to help Trump.

Obama was working against Trump until the hour he left office. His national security advisor, Susan Rice, commemorated it with an email to herself on January 20, moments before Trump’s inauguration. She wrote to memorialize a meeting in the White House two weeks before.

On January 5, following a briefing by IC leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.
President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book.” The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia. . . .
The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.

You misunderstand the word "coup".

If you are alleging anyone acted criminally, why aren't you calling for an investigation? For arrests?

Even if Obama worked assiduously to undermine Trump's presidency, that offers Trump no defense for his crimes. It is possible that both men broke the law.

Lastly, what incentive would Obama have had to risk prison to undermine Trump? Why? Obama cannot run again.

You can tell how they wanted to use russian interference in the section as a way to harm trump by the way they all knew about it during the election and never once, never ONCE, mentioned it during the campaign.

Obama knew, Clinton knew, they all knew, and they said nothing. Specifically because they knew what they'd be accused of by rabid ideologues if they uttered a word about it.

Because the coup failed. But you know that.
Next you'll be calling it a lynching.

Everything that's going down is being done by the book (that is, according to the constitution). You don't want it to happen and you think Trump has done nothing wrong, but claiming the current impeachment process is illegitimate only says you don't know what the US impeachment process is.

Ever heard of John Durham? They ARE being investigated. But ya won't hear about that on CNN. As to WHY? Obama is an egomaniac. Wants his "Legacy" to stand. Since that legacy was to destroy this country ,he almost succeeded. This Coup was the final act.
