President Donald Trump has had to fight against a rogue FBI since the very beginning of his presidency. Corrupt officials like James Comey and Robert Mueller illegally used their positions of power to target Donald Trump’s presidential campaign while secretly spying on him. And now, Trump is fighting back.
In an interview on Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump revealed that one of his goals is to break up the “deep state” during his presidency. Trump made the comment days after reportedly directing Attorney General William Barr to have deep state officials jailed for their crimes. And although, Joe Biden won’t be investigated, other high ranking Democrats will be.
In an exclusive interview with Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson, Trump stated:
“What am I doing? I’m fighting the deep state. I’m fighting the swamp…If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country.”
During the interview, Attkisson agreed with the president. And hours later, she even told reporters that she had also been spied on by Obama officials of the “deep state” – just like Trump had been targeted.
“I am one of the first people who was able to identify myself as a target of illegal spying under the Obama administration.”
“I believe many, many others were spied on but do not know. It was only thanks to help from intelligence contacts that I even learned that government agents were spying on me. Otherwise, I never suspected it or would have known.”
Attkisson has long asserted that the feds wrongfully surveilled her electronic devices from 2011-14, part of an operation tied to her reporting on the Justice Department’s botched “Fast and Furious” gun-running scheme. She claims that the Justice Department, which was spearheaded by Eric Holder, illegally harassed her because she was giving them bad publicity.
All of this happened under the Obama administration. And many of those same officials who targeted her are still in power.
Trump Brings In Bill Barr
President Donald Trump is doing everything in his power to stop the endless corruption by the former Obama officials. He’s firing as many people as he can that have ties to Obama and the corrupt deep state in order to clean up the White House. And now he’s even taking legal action to have the officials punished in a court of law.
President Trump has reportedly reached out to Attorney General William Barr to investigate the deep state officials who spied on him during his campaign.
And although Barr has recently made a gesture of saying at a news conference Monday that he would not, in fact, seek to lock up Barack Obama or Joe Biden – he will be going after other officials, including James Comey. And apparently the only reason Barr won’t go after Obama is that it would set up a horrible precedent and could lead to Democrats targeting Trump again in the future.
William Barr has also directed the Justice Department to to undo prosecutions of Trump campaign advisers Roger Stone and Michael Flynn – who were illegally targeted by the FBI.
Needless to say, this is a huge step. And it could be one of the acts that will put Donald Trump in American history books forever.
