Now that the transcript of President Donald Trump’s conversation with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been made public, it is clear to his voters that he did nothing wrong. He only did what he promised to do: Drain the Swamp.
The so-called “whistleblower” probably didn’t anticipate that Trump would publish the transcript, and this allows careful readers to compare what was said between the two presidents and what was leaked in the media. It now appears that we may have a Steele Dossier 2.0 on our hands, a work of fiction crafted to smear the president.
With the release of the transcript, Trump once again proves that he is the most transparent president in US history. How fitting then that the topic of their conversation was precisely to expose the machinations of the deep state and what appears to be corruption in the wake of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Many people are worried that the president is violating his constitutional powers. Why is Trump investigating corruption and deep state coup attempts? Isn’t that the responsibility of the FBI, CIA, or other agencies? There are excellent people in these organizations, but there are also highly positioned individuals who want to undo the election and unseat the president. Trump must continuously contend with sabotage and leaks. The fact that his conversation with the Ukrainian president was leaked by someone within the CIA proves that he had every reason to be worried about interference.
An Ongoing Coup
The fake Steel Dossier, the Mueller Probe, the endless leaks, the impeachment fantasies, the “fine people” hoax, and other constant media attacks are not mere political opposition; they are an attempt by a small minority of elite people to undo the election of Donald Trump. On their own, each action does not rise to the level of treason, but in sum, they in practice act as a de facto ongoing coup attempt against Trump and the American people who elected him.
The Enemy Test
If that seems wildly hyperbolic to you, consider the enemy test. It is a well-known fact that during the cold war, the Soviet Union had operatives inside the US to destroy capitalism and the American way. Some of those were exposed by Sen. Joe McCarthy and others.
The Soviet Union was unquestionably an enemy of the US. Ask yourself the following: If the USSR existed today and had operatives in America, what would they do differently from what the Democrat leadership, the mainstream media, and the deep state opposition are doing to destabilize and destroy America?
When Trump disparages the mainstream media as “the enemy of the people,” he means that they are indistinguishable from operatives acting on behalf of a foreign enemy state.
Trump’s Ukrainian conversation must be understood in this context. The White House is, in practice, under siege, and on behalf of the American people, the president must take unusual steps to defend the country and drain the swamp.
