Somehow, you still have liberals out there refusing to admit that there was (and still is) a deep state conspiracy against President Donald Trump and his supporters. You still have mainstream media hosts using phrases like, “Well, this is sure to fuel the deep state conspiracy theories that are common in the right-wing blogosphere.” Yeah, we’d say! When is there enough evidence that this is the case? How many people have to come out and admit to such a conspiracy before it goes from being a “theory” to a fact?
Well, former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe did his part this week to move the needle a little closer to the “fact” column, admitting to “60 Minutes” that he was the one who initiated the obstruction of justice investigation into Trump. Apparently unaware that Trump has the constitutional authority to fire the FBI director at will, McCabe leaped to start the investigation after the president sent his boss, Jim Comey, to the unemployment line.
Furthermore, McCabe also said that during this time, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered several times to wear a wire while talking to Trump, and he said that there were several high-level conversations about invoking the 25th Amendment against the president as a way of throwing him out of office.
If this isn’t the very definition of a deep state conspiracy against the president, then what is?
Put McCabe’s confessions together with the New York Times anonymous op-ed from last year which confirmed that there were members of a “conservative” Resistance within the executive branch who would take papers off Trump’s desk and otherwise sabotage his “bad” decisions. Put them together with everything we know about the FISA abuse that the FBI/DOJ engaged in to get a warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Put them together with the Mueller investigation, which seems designed solely to trap Trump campaign officials in lies for the purpose of turning them against the president.
Wasn’t this all supposed to be about Russian collusion at one point? What the hell happened to THAT?
Last week, William Barr was confirmed as the new Attorney General of the United States. While Barr has assured Congress that he will not interfere with the Mueller investigation, we certainly hope that he WILL embark on the serious investigation of DOJ wrongdoing that his predecessor refused to initiate. These people did nothing more or less than attempt a coup on our democracy, and they need to be held accountable. Until and unless they are, the American people cannot be expected to put their faith in this broken, corrupt agency of “justice.”
