Warning: This madness in Washington may lead to dictatorship. By Charles Featherstone.

If Van Buren is right, and the intelligence services are engaging in a slows-motion coup against President Trump, that should be a cause for concern.

The intelligence community has become our Praetorian Guard, with the ability to make and unmake presidents. It has not been used yet, but there are an awful lot of people cheering for just that to happen.

And once that weapon is unsheathed, for good and ill, and it will only be a matter of time before some ambitious soul realizes you can get and keep the presidency that way, instead of actually having to get elected.

If happened to the Romans. Read the article for the story, involving Roman emperor Caligula.
