The FISA Memo Confirms the Deep State and Its Hostility to Trump

If there was any reason to doubt that the deep state is real and that it is powerful, recent events should settle the question.

Anyone who doubts the deep state and its hostility to the American electorate need only read this liberal anti-Trump piece by Eugene Robinson. His surface message is: There is no deep state and it will punish Donald Trump for opposing it. Of course, that can only mean that there is a deep state and the liberals are all on its side.

Thus, Michael Goodwin writes in the New York Post, “The GOP memo proves the ‘deep state’ is real.

Now that we know what the declassified House memo says about government misconduct, we also know what it means: The Washington swamp — the deep state — is bigger, more vicious and more dangerous to American liberty than even a cynic could have imagined.

Trending: Thanks for you loyalty… IMPORTANT news about Eagle Rising…

Because of the memo and previous revelations, we know that swamp creatures are embedded in the top of the FBI and the Department of Justice. Some used their power to try to tip a presidential campaign based on their personal politics.

They conducted a sham investigation of the Democratic candidate and misled federal judges to spy on at least one associate of her Republican challenger.

To block exposure of their misdeeds, these officials falsely claimed that national security would be damaged. Add that despicable lie — issued in the name of the FBI itself — to their shameful records.

Thanks to the battle over the memo, we also know with 100 percent certainty that the mainstream media is part of the swamp. The efforts by The New York Times and The Washington Post, among others, to keep the memo from ever seeing sunshine were appalling.

Before it saw the memo, the Times’ editorial page called it proof of “The Republican Plot Against the FBI.” A Washington Post columnist warned President Trump he would be making a historic mistake in releasing it.

“Presidents don’t win fights with the FBI,” Eugene Robinson wrote, seemingly endorsing the blackmailing habits of the disgraced J. Edgar Hoover.

Oddly, the campaign by those papers coincided with the celebration of their roles in releasing the Pentagon Papers nearly 50 years ago, as heroically depicted in the movie “The Post.”
