If the Democrats were hoping to tamp down talk of the “Deep State”, they sure aren’t doing a great job of it.
The most prescient modern examples of this allegedly clandestine cabal has reared its ugly head once again in Washington DC, this time as new documents reveal the FBI’s willingness to trick former national security adviser Michael Flynn into lying to them. As it turns out, General Flynn is currently working to withdraw his earlier guilty plea on just such a charge, and the revelations could not have come at a more perfect time.
Now, efforts by the GOP to dig deeper into this possible malfeasance have come up empty-handed and they’re blaming that on notorious Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff.
The letter, directed to Schiff, D-Calif., and committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., referenced the panel’s investigation into “Russian active measures to influence the 2016 presidential election, including whether individuals associated with the presidential campaigns worked with Russia,” which began in January 2017.
The committee “after interviewing 73 individuals and reviewing over 300,000 documents” issued a report in 2018 revealing that “the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia,” it states. It adds that the committee voted in September 2018 to release “53 transcripts.”
“We understand now that Chairman Schiff is blocking the release of these transcripts,” they wrote. “This news, if accurate, is disturbing—especially in light of Chairman Schiff’s cries in 2019 for transparency regarding allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
As the RussiaGate conspiracy theory falls apart, the case against Schiff and the Deep State grows more solid by the day.
