Is it true that a Florida pastor who supports U.S. President Donald Trump described the impeachment inquiry in Congress as a “Jew coup”?

It is indeed, reports Snopes.com’s Dan MacGuill. On the online channel, TruNews, Pastor Rick Wiles not only described congressional Democrats as “seditious Jews,” but said “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a hoax document at the heart of a long-debunked, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, “accurately predicted what was going to happen in the world.”
