How dirty can you be…
President Donald Trump has been complaining about the Deep State but now one of the former directors of the CIA has basically admitted to its existence.
It came during an interview with Margaret Brennan on CSPAN as she interviewed John McLaughlin, who led the CIA during the administration of former President George W. Bush.
“But there is nothing unique you have to agree, that now the impeachment sparked by complaint from someone in the intelligence community.

“It feeds the president’s concern and often used the term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out,” Brennan said.
“Thank God for the deep state,” McLaughlin said as the crowd laughed. “I mean I think everyone has seen this progression of diplomats and intelligence officers and White House people trooping up to Capitol Hill right now and saying these are people who are doing their duty or responding to a higher call.
“It doesn’t- I guess it doesn’t suit- well think about it for a minute, with all of the people who knew what was going on here, it took a an intelligence operative to step up, step forward and say something about it.
“Which was the trigger that then unleashed everything else. Why does that happen? Tell the American people why that happens is, this is the institution in the U.S. government that with all of his flaws and makes mistakes, is institutionally committed to objectivity and to telling the truth.
“It is one of the few institutions in Washington that is not in a chain of command that makes or implements policy. His whole job is to speak the truth. It is engraved in marble in the lobby,” he said.But what he did not mention, what no journalist wants to mention, is that the whistleblower has allegedly been found to be a Democrat operative.
