    Deep State Fizzle

    Well....not that this will put an end to the CT, but the reality is now official.

    Donald Trump's 'Deep State' conspiracy theory just took a big hit - CNNPolitics

    President Donald Trump is deeply invested in the idea that there is a "Deep State" embedded within the government bureaucracy -- and centered in the Department of Justice -- which actively worked to defeat him in 2016 and then sought to undermine him once he won the presidency.

    That conspiracy theory, which has never had much merit, suffered a near-fatal blow Friday afternoon when the Department of Justice declined to pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe...
    Oh wait, I know. It's just more evidence that the deep state is protecting the deep state.


    Will this nuttiness ever end? I kind of doubt it.

    Naturally. That sort of non-thinking is how truthers are still around.

    I have had occasion to see someone go don't pay attention to that, go back and pay attention to this earlier IG report.
    Zelensky: [. . .] We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.

    Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though [. . . ]

    Well, let's see what's actually been happening, eh?

    Barr has assigned someone OUTSIDE of DC to look into this Flynn nonsense.

    Barr has assigned someone OUTSIDE of DC to look into this Stone nonsense.

    Liu...someone who had her fingers in every deep state and crooked action involving the DOJ, got played and has ended up out of the government entirely.

    McCabe was let off the hook for his lies to FBI investigators, but he faces the possibility of being indicted for FISA court abuses, among other things.

    And don't forget...Durham and his grand jury are still on the job.


    You know...if I were a deep state puke, I'd seriously think about quitting my job and moving out of the country.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Here's a guy who tonight probably finds himself yelling, "Deep State!"

    "Today a unanimous jury found Michael Avenatti guilty of misusing his client's information in an effort to extort tens of millions of dollars from the athletic apparel company Nike," U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. "While the defendant may have tried to hide behind legal terms and a suit and tie, the jury clearly saw the defendant's scheme for what it was -- an old-fashioned shakedown."


    Avenatti's attorney, Scott Srebnick, indicated that he would appeal the verdict. Avenatti did not testify during the three-week trial.
