FDR: would-be victim of a coup?

Speaking of coups (and I was just a few days ago…):

Supposedly, FDR was slated to be the victim of a coup. but the would-be puppet-leader of the new regime shot it down (Smedley Butler). And he supposedly later shared the details to the forerunner of the House UnAmerican Activities Committee.

A bit too convenient, perhaps. But throw it in the “hm” category.
