It Was the Deep State that Colluded with the Russians, not Trump

By Clarice Feldman September 24, 2017

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do.

The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes.

As the unmasking picked up pace after the election, the reasonable assumption is that its purpose was to undo the results of the election or hamstring the incoming President. Now Obama and his allies are or should be terrified that the scope of the illegal surveillance is revealing their criminal acts. ............Read more
