First, when Trump uses his term, “the Deep State,” he is talking about anyone who does not support his vile agenda. In other words, he is talking about real Americans.
The truth is that it is another ‘attack phrase’ and a pitiful attempt to demean his many adversaries. However, as it always does, the truth will eventually rise above lies. Trump has been proven a criminal and a façade. He took great pleasure in firing James Comey. Of course, he lacked to courage to face the former FBI Director. Mr. Comey learned about removal from his post on television while in Los Angeles.
Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are another part of the story, and the part which rebukes Trump’s fallacious conspiracy theory about a “deep state.”
During the 2016 campaign Strzok and his lover, Page, communicated their concern and disdain for Trump frequently. When the orange child learned of this fact, he immediately threw a temper tantrum. How dare anyone involved in our government have an opinion about the future of our nation.
As ranking members of the FBI, Strzok and Page were involved in the investigation of Trump’s stooge, Carter Page who had visited Moscow during the campaign. The right-wing later claimed that a conspiracy was created to prevent Trump’s winning the election. This was proven untrue.
McCabe was a primary figure in the Russia investigation. As a deputy FBI director, his position was responsible for communication with the press and the dissemination of information to the public.
Today, Friday, February 14, 2020, the Department of Justice declined to pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. He had been accused of lying to investigators about conversations he had with reporters. McCabe had long insisted that if he had done so it had been purely accidental, and noted that, in his role, he was authorized to speak to the media.
This debunked Trump’s claims of a “deep state” intent on destroying his presidency once and for all. Your illegitimate president never ceased his attempts to defend his victory in the Electoral College. The enormous amount of evidence that Russia and the mainstream media contributed to his illegitimate presidency can no longer be denied. If Moscow Mitch McConnell had not prevented the American people from learning about foreign interference in October of 2016, Trump would never have become the 45th president of the United States. No conspiracy theories; facts.
Trump’s illegitimate presidency is a “house of cards.” If a handful of Republicans would admit the truth and end their devotion to the fascist in the White House, Trump would cease to be a danger to America and the world. Sadly, this Republican Party in name only has abandoned the party of Lincoln and the principles it held dear in the mid 1860’s. If Abraham Lincoln were alive today, he would be a Democrat.
The Truth is that Trump is not a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent. He is what I call a Capitalistic Fascist. Money is his only god, and he is his only ally and friend. This narcissistic egomaniac is unfit to claim the title of President of the United States.
