Turkey jailed 337 people for life, accusing them of trying to overthrow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a 2016 attempted coup. Turkey detained 290,000+ people over alleged links to the coup and gave out 2,500 to life sentences, a crackdown it said was necessary for security.
The media is making a big mistake about Republican support for Trump's attempted coup
“One of the most disgraceful examples of an abuse of power by a government official…when you read this report…this is a systematic effort to go after Candidate Trump, President Elect-Trump, and President Trump....you could virtually call this an attempted coup." @RepPeteKing
Every time Democrats have attempted a coup, there's been a common denominator—the lies of Chairman Adam Schiff. He shouldn't just be censured, he should be removed as Chair of the Intelligence Committee.
Suspending parliament to prevent the expression of the will of elected representatives is what autocrats and dictators do. This attempted coup against our democracy to impose a no deal Brexit cannot be allowed to stand.
