“Soft coup” is a term used to describe a coup d’état without the use of violence, but based on a conspiracy or plot that has as its objective the taking of the State power by partially or wholly illegal means.
The past few days have been interesting. When I heard about the raid on Cohen’s office I knew that the Deep State was desperate. That’s not the kind of move you make unless you are very sure you’ve got the goods or you are very desperate. But if Deep State had the goods, somebody (Cohen) would have been arrested.
There are a group of people in this country who are committed to overturning the last election by fair means or foul, and I am not talking about a bunch of diehard PUMAs in pink pussy hats. They are desperate and they took their best shot.
And they whiffed.
