Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) appeared on Fox Business on Friday where he said that the ‘deep state’ is trying to take down President Trump.
Transcript: “Overall I think that they are dealing with seditious people within the Department of Justice, within the FBI, within the Department of Interior, within the CIA. There are people that do not approve of the Trump presidency and I think they are trying to take him down from the inside.
That sounds kind of conspiratorial but I think that’s what Trump’s looking at right now. I think you have people within the government – what you call the ‘deep state’ – bureaucrats, Obama appointees that hate Donald Trump.”

If this is true then those who are involved in trying to take down Donald Trump are actively committing Treason against the United States and they should be criminally prosecuted for their crimes.
From Cornell University Law School: “18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
If people in the government are waging war against President Trump then they’re also waging war against the American people.
