Then-CIA director Gina Haspel said the US was 'on the way to a right-wing coup' after Trump lost the election

The former CIA director expressed concern that the US was headed toward a right-wing coup after then President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election, according to a new book obtained by The Washington Post.

The book, "Peril," by The Post's Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, is set to be released next week and documents the chaotic final months of Trump's presidency and the beginning of Joe Biden's term.

The Post reported that the top officials in the US military and intelligence apparatus were afraid of what Trump might do in his quest to overturn the election results and the effect that his lies about the election could have on his agitated base.

Two of those officials were Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gina Haspel, the CIA director. In one conversation, the book said, Haspel told Milley, "We are on the way to a right-wing coup." It's unclear when during the transition period the conversation took place, but it came as Trump and his loyalists were pushing the lie that the election had been "rigged" and stolen from him.

Trump's bogus conspiracy theories grew so frenzied that Milley started thinking the president was suffering a mental decline after losing the election, the book said, according to The Post.

The president's actions also sparked concerns overseas about how far he would go to regain control of the White House. Those concerns persuaded Milley to call his Chinese counterpart on two occasions - once before the election and once after the Capitol riot - to reportedly assure him that Trump would not start a war with the country.

In another phone call on January 8, two days after the failed insurrection, Milley told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he agreed with her when she called Trump "crazy," the book said.

And she was shot in Germany (in the arm) when those server's locations were raided and the servers were confiscated. You missed that part. Why was she protecting overseas hackers of our election Rumi?

The left wing coup had taken place. The usurpers made every move they could to preserve calm in face of the stolen election.
As in any coup, the rebels become the establishment and the establishment become the rebels.

Yep, they are the law now, and they decide who is in violation and when.

Haha, more panic from a low info civilian. I'm still laughing at these people frightened by an unconventional and effective president that can't be controlled. This is the same mentality that was terrified by the new ice coming in 1977, all the polar bears dead by 2014, the current attitude of hubris that thinks they can control the climate but can't stop a virus or reasonably balance a budget. Maybe they are why disaster movies sell?
Eek, eek, and Oh Shit We're all gonna die tomorrow! Look at the sky falling!
