Deep State Supporters Want Trump Removed From Office For "Russia Ties"

Wanting Improved Ties with Russia Considered Heresy. "Deep State" Supporters Want Trump Removed From Office

Global Research, March 05, 2017

Anti-Russia sentiment in Washington matches McCarthy era witch-hunt hysteria.
It's more dangerous because of bipartisan hawks infesting Congress and the administration in key defense, national security and intelligence positions.

Instead of Dwight Eisenhower warning of the dangers of the military/industrial complex in his farewell address, chicken hawks Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bush/Cheney, Obama, and now Trump consider muscular militarism a good thing, enormous risks ignored.

Trump is in trouble anyway. Deep State Hillary supporters want him delegitimized, undermined and removed from office - aiming at key officials in his administration, perhaps prelude to replacing him a more easily controlled figurehead like Pence.

Trump fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn over nothing, bowing to opposition forces wanting him out - solely for being soft on Russia, wanting improved relations.

So does AG Jeff Sessions, why he's targeted for removal, not for speaking to Russia's ambassador to Washington when a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Undemocratic Democrats and screaming headlines call for his head, wanting no change in hardline policy toward Moscow, virtually certain to get it, one of many broken Trump campaign pledges, more to come while he claims otherwise.

On Thursday, Sessions shamefully recused himself from federal investigations into the 2016 presidential campaign, related to (nonexistent) Russia election hacking - groundless claims with evidence.

FBI investigations so far found nothing, including about allegations of Trump financial ties to Russian pubic or private figures.

Witch-hunt investigations continue, checking phony allegations of relations between Trump aides and Moscow.

In a Thursday statement, Sessions said he "met with the relevant senior career (Justice) Department officials to discuss whether (to) recuse (himself) from any matters arising from the campaigns for President of the United States."

"Having concluded those meetings today, I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States," he said.

I have taken no actions regarding any such matters, to the extent they exist.

In a statement on Facebook, Trump said "Jeff Sessions is an honest man. He did not say anything wrong. He could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional."

This whole narrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win.

The Democrats are overplaying their hand. They lost the election and now, they have lost their grip on reality. The real story is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information. It is a total witch hunt!

Sessions remains AG, for how long remains to be seen. Pro-Hillary deep state long knives aren't through with him. Other administration officials close to Trump are vulnerable.

Will he stick by his people responsibly or throw them to the wolves one-by-one - undermining himself in the process?

What's going on is clear - an aggressive deep state, media supported, orchestrated campaign to delegitimize Trump, weaken him irreparably, perhaps ahead of removing him from office by impeachment and conviction, resignation or something more sinister.

At the same time, it aims to maintain hostility toward Russia and Vladimir Putin, risking direct confrontation - unthinkable possible nuclear war, madness if launched, ...

A Deep State Of Mind: America's Shadow Government And Its Silent Coup
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/10/433614.shtml

The future president will actually inherit not one but two shadow governments.

The first shadow government, referred to as COG or Continuity of Government, is made up of unelected individuals who have been appointed to run the government in the event of a "catastrophe." COG is a phantom menace waiting for the right circumstances—a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, an economic meltdown—to bring it out of the shadows, where it operates even now. When and if COG takes over, the police state will transition to martial law.

Yet it is the second shadow government—also referred to as the Deep State—that poses the greater threat to freedom right now. Comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who are actually calling the shots behind the scenes, this government within a government is the real reason "we the people" have no real control over our government.

The Deep State, which "operates according to its own compass heading regardless of who is formally in power," makes a mockery of elections and the entire concept of a representative government. If there is anything the Deep State requires it is silent, uninterrupted cash flow and the confidence that things will go on as they have in the past. It is even willing to tolerate a degree of gridlock: Partisan mud wrestling over cultural issues may be a useful distraction from its agenda.

So who or what is the Deep State?

Essay: Anatomy of the Deep State
February 21, 2014
by Mike Lofgren

The Deep State does not consist of the entire government. It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street. All these agencies are coordinated by the Executive Office of the President via the National Security Council.

Certain key areas of the judiciary belong to the Deep State, such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, whose actions are mysterious even to most members of Congress. Also included are a handful of vital federal trial courts, such as the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of Manhattan, where sensitive proceedings in national security cases are conducted. The final government component (and possibly last in precedence among the formal branches of government established by the Constitution) is a kind of rump Congress consisting of the congressional leadership and some (but not all) of the members of the defense and intelligence committees. The rest of Congress, normally so fractious and partisan, is mostly only intermittently aware of the Deep State and when required usually submits to a few well-chosen words from the State's emissaries.

Donald J. Trump is a treasonous, seditious traitor 21.Mar.2017 13:05

gwai lo

Donald Trump has worked with his idol Putin from the beginning to manipulate the 2016 election in his favor.
It was Vladimir Putin who authorized the hacking into the Democratic emails, and inserting fabricated emails into Hillary's
and other democratic websites, via Julian Assange.
All through the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump was aware of what was going on, and he ordered Michael Flynn, Carter Page, and others to communicate with the Russians, to ensure that he became Putin's puppet.
Trump deserves to be locked up in Leavenworth for the rest of his life for his crimes.
Trump, and his entire administration is illegitimate, and should be dissolved immediately, and VP Joe Biden should be sworn in
as the interim president, until a legitimate campaign is run and a legitimate candidate becomes the 45th president of the
United States.
There is only a nest of snakes infesting the White House. We should designate June 24th as Nation Whacking Day, to honor the
people of Springfield --- Homer, Moe, Apu, Wiggums, and all the others.
