Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney characterized the text messages between Trump-hating FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page as sounding “an awful lot like a coup.”
Cheney told ABC News’ “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that the correspondence between the two, who were both colleagues and lovers, could amount to treason.
“I think what is really crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page who were in charge of launching this investigation and they were saying things like, ‘We must stop this president, we need an insurance policy against this president,’” Cheney told ABC.
“That in my view when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup and it could well be treason,” she suggested.
Treason can mean assisting the enemies of America or “levying war” against the United States.
