Deep State

Mark Penn (Clinton Adviser) Laying Out Truth
Mark Penn served as pollster and adviser to President Clinton from 1995 to 2000, including during his impeachment.

This former Clinton adviser is woke.

From The Hill ... ect-us-all

The “deep state” is in a deep state of desperation. With little time left before the Justice Department inspector general’s report becomes public, and with special counsel Robert Mueller having failed to bring down Donald Trump after a year of trying, they know a reckoning is coming.


With this report on the way and congressional investigators beginning to zero in on the lack of hard, verified evidence for starting the Trump investigation, current and former intelligence and Justice officials are dumping everything they can think of to save their reputations.

But it is backfiring. They started by telling the story of Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat, as having remembered a months-old bar conversation with George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the Trump presidential campaign. But how did the FBI know they should talk to him? That’s left out of their narrative.

Downer’s signature appears on a $25 million contribution to the Clinton Foundation. You don’t need much imagination to figure that he was close with Clinton Foundation operatives who relayed information to the State Department, who then called the FBI to complete the loop. No, it wasn’t intelligence — it was likely opposition research from the start.


Finding the “off” switch will not be easy. Step one here is for the inspector general’s report to knock Comey out of the witness box. Next, the full origins of the investigation and its lack of any real intelligence needs to come out in the open. The attorney general, himself the target of a secret investigation, needs to take back his Justice Department. He needs to act quickly — along with U.S. Attorney John Huber, appointed to conduct an internal review of the FBI — on the James Comey and Andrew McCabe matters following the inspector general report, and then announce an expanded probe into other abuses of power.

Stopping Mueller is not about any one president or one party — it’s about all presidents and all parties. It’s about cleaning out and reforming the deep state so that our intelligence operations are never again used against opposing campaigns without the firmest of evidence. It’s about letting people work for campaigns and administrations without needing legal defense funds. It’s about relying on our elections to decide our differences.
