...about the trend among conservatives of calling investigations of Trump a "coup." You may recall I mentioned this subject last week but even since then, as the investigations have heated up so have the paranoid delusions.

This seems to effect even wimpy establishment conservatives like Matt Lewis:
Attorney Harvey Silvergate argues that every professional in America inadvertently commits three felonies a day. I’m assuming that this number is much higher for a casino magnate who operates in, say, Atlantic City. My point here is that it’s entirely possible that Donald Trump never colluded with Russians, yet may have taken some liberties that a grand jury with unlimited time and resources—not to mention subpoena power!—might discover.
Why, it could happen to any of us -- an overzealous prosecutor looking for a quick score might snoop in your life, or mine, and find that we've claimed a bogus deduction worth a couple of hundred dollars. And that's why we should sympathize with Trump if it turns out he's sent bales of cash to the Russian mob.
Think of it. A special prosecutors’ raison d’etre is to find something. That’s how an Arkansas land deal leads to a blue dress—which, in turn, led Kenneth Starr to perjury.
OK, I gotta admit: That bit took nerve.
