Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Treasonous coup-plotters? GOP Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) certainly seems to think so.
Check this out…
Sen. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo,, on Sunday said Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the origins of the FBI’s Russia probe must look at conversations that sound “an awful lot like a coup” and “could well be treason.”
In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Cheney pointed to texts exchanged by former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that criticized President Donald Trump.
“When you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that sounds an awful lot like a coup and it could well be treason and I think that we need to know more,” she said.
Rep. Liz Cheney: "We had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement … saying that they were going to stop a duly elected president of the United States."

If you’re a conservative, be careful. You are liable to be punished for even the slightest infraction.
If you’re a liberal, don’t worry. You can do and say whatever you want and you’ll get a pass.
That is life in 2019. Unfortunately, that’s how things are going to be for the foreseeable future.
Let’s take late night talk show host Stephen Colbert, for example.
The man who replaced David Letterman on CBS is a liberal who said – on live TV, mind you – that he wanted to strangle the attorney general of the United States.
Has the network said anything? Have Democrats condemned his words?
Nah, bro. Stephen’s in the clear.
Speaking of Barr’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier in the day, Colbert said, “It was incredibly frustrating to watch; filled with legalistic hair-splitting and political ass-covering. I’d say it made me want to wring his neck but I’d need like five more hands!”

Now that Barr has set the record straight once and for all regarding Donald Trump and Russia “collusion,” liberals in the media are absolutely losing their minds.
Of course, so are liberals in Hollywood and Congress.
Disgraced journalist Brian Williams, who was caught in a lie about a helicopter crash in Iraq in 2003 (more on that below), has now dubbed the AG “Baghdad Bill Barr.”
From Free Beacon:
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams was deeply disappointed in Attorney General William Barr Thursday, calling him “Baghdad Bill Barr” after his press conference declaring Robert Mueller found no collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia.
The nickname is a reference to Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf or “Baghdad Bob,” the information minister for Saddam Hussein who lied to the public about the Iraq War. Barr made a statement and took questions Thursday morning before the release of the full report, and Williams expressed deep disappointment in Barr’s declaration there was not collusion.
“It would harken back to a conflict decades ago, we would not be surprised if some headline writer somewhere came up with Baghdad Bill Barr for what we saw today,” Williams said.
He went on to repeat all the ways Barr said Mueller found “no collusion,” as if this were a strange thing for the attorney general to talk about when Mueller’s findings on collusion were a singular obsession of the media for the better part of two years.
