Days before President-elect Donald J. Trump was inaugurated, Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer of New York issued a warning to the incoming commander-in-chief: Don’t pick a fight with the U.S. intelligence community.
Specifically, Schumer was responding to Trump’s criticism of reports that U.S. intelligence agencies had clear evidence that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, ostensibly because Moscow ‘didn’t like Clinton.’
“Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer cryptically said. “So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”
Think about that for a moment. Here was an establishment politician — a Democrat, sure, but more than anything else an establishment politician — admitting that the Deep State was more powerful than the president of the United States, the person to which the intelligence community is supposed to answer (as well as the American people).
Schumer was also tacitly admitting that the intelligence community — part and parcel of the Deep State — was also more powerful than Congress, which is supposed to have oversight responsibility.
How could that be? How could it be that the intelligence apparatus of the United States had become a power unto itself, beyond the scope of the Executive Branch and beyond the control of Congress?
Could it be that over the years and decades, there was an intentional effort by past presidents and members of the political establishment in both parties to establish the intelligence community as the de facto head of the country? Because for all intents and purposes, it now is.
As NationalSecurity.news noted in a December 2016 analysis, intelligence community’s narrative that Trump and Russia ‘colluded’ to ‘steal the election’ from Hillary Clinton because President Vladimir Putin had a personal animus against her never made any sense. We now know why (though we suspected even back then): The Clintons have so many nefarious, nebulous ties to Putin and his government she would, as president, be beholden to anything he wanted. She would have become the Russian mole in the White House.
But instead, we’ve been lead to believe it’s Trump who’s the Manchurian president. And it’s all been based on a narrative that has been manufactured by a politicized U.S. justice system, FBI, and Deep State intelligence apparatus. (Related: DEEP STATE: Rep. Jordan says FBI paid for, then based its Team Trump probe on BOGUS ‘dossier’.)
Republicans in Congress increasingly believe, for instance, that the Obama administration — nay, the former president himself — was behind a plot to destroy Trump’s candidacy, then his presidency after he unexpectedly beat Clinton in November 2016. We’re discovering more and more by the day now, as ours and other alternative media outlets publish more information about how the Obama regime manipulated the FISA court to obtain a surveillance warrant so they could spy on Trump’s campaign.
We’re discovering that the so-called “Trump dossier” was likely used to justify that warrant, despite the fact that is complete garbage. We’re learning that operatives within the FBI and Justice Department were involved in its creation. We’ve learned that it was originally supposed to be opposition research, paid for by Trump’s opponent.
And, we’re likely to learn that Obama was orchestrating all of it, which — if true — proves that the Deep State not only exists, but that it’s a super-nationalist force that operates outside of the confines of the Constitution, Congress, and even the presidency itself.
There is much more to come regarding this subject. Stay tuned. Read DeepState.news for more details.
