This is pretty shocking.
For months now, we’ve been told that the ‘deep state’ is a conspiracy theory.
Now people on the left are openly celebrating its existence.
Even the former director of the CIA.
FOX News reports:
Ex-acting CIA boss expresses gratitude for ‘deep state’ involvement in impeachment inquiry
Former Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin indicated on Wednesday that he was grateful for the “deep state’s” role in prompting the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
CBS reporter Margaret Brennan had noted to McLaughlin that the origin of the impeachment inquiry likely furthered Trump’s concerns about the “deep state”.
“There is something unique you have to agree that now that the impeachment inquiry is underway, sparked by a complaint from someone within the intelligence community, it feeds the president’s concern, an often-used term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out,” she said.
“Well, you know, thank God for the ‘deep state’,” McLaughlin responded, provoking laughter and applause.
His comments came just a day before the House would vote to approve a resolution for ground rules in Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
The former intelligence official was speaking at an event hosted by George Mason University, joined by former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former CIA Director John Brennan — both of whom have been critical of the president.

Is that astounding, or what?
I’m old enough to remember being told the Deep State was just a “right-wing conspiracy theory”. Funny, because that’s exactly what they call what’s about to be reported by the IG and prosecuted by the DOJ…..

I'm old enough to remember when talk of a "deep state" was ridiculed as a conspiracy theory. Good to know is finally being confirmed.

They really believe in their own BS. The CIA has slipped so low it's hard to recognize.

The flagrant disrespect for the will of the American people on display here is genuinely shocking.
