It seems the former Acting CIA Director John McLaughlin is praising the “Deep State” and it’s a role in the current mess with have with the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

McLaughlin was referring to the fact that an intelligence officer filed the whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s July call with Ukraine, in which there was a conversation that the Democrats have described as showing Trump inappropriately asked a foreign country to interfere in the 2020 elections by investigating his political rival.

The former intelligence official spoke at an event hosted by George Mason University, joined by former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former CIA Director John Brennan. It should be noted that both of whom have been critical of the president.

Also to be pointed out is that this whole impeachment inquiry is just signally more and more every day that the conspiracy theories of a”Deep State” are more likely than ever, confirming Trump’s concerns and Tweets.

“There is something unique you have to agree that now that the impeachment inquiry is underway, sparked by a complaint from someone within the intelligence community, it feeds the president’s concern, an often-used term about a ‘deep state’ being there to take him out,”

Stated by CBS reporter Margaret Brennan

“Well, you know, thank God for the ‘deep state’,”

McLaughlin responded, provoking laughter and applause.

He went on to praise the intelligence community.

“This is the institution within the U.S. government — that with all of its flaws, and it makes mistakes — is institutionally committed to objectivity and 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. Its whole job is to speak the truth — it’s engraved in marble in the lobby.”

“With all of the people who knew what was going on here, it took an intelligence officer to step forward and say something about it, which was the trigger that then unleashed everything else,”

These comments came just before the House voted to approve a resolution for ground rules in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Trump.

Opinion: Looking into this is that this was all over the fact that Trump just wanted to know why Biden was able to pressure Ukraine into dropping a legal case and inquiry into Biden’s son. It’s all a bit odd that our President Trump would be getting impeached over the exact thing that Joe Biden actually did when all Trump did was ask questions. More Double Standards of course!

And he deployed a trendy put-down to call out Meadows for committing the social media sin of not tagging him: “@ me next time, bruh.”Fox News’ Brooke Singman and Jake Gibson contributed to this report.Comey, during June 2017 testimony, said he deliberately leaked a memo in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.It remains unclear how tough the IG report will be on Comey, but the review pertains to memos he wrote memorializing his interactions with President Trump in the days leading up to his firing. He then passed those documents to a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.The report related to Comey’s leaks is separate from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPDOJ WILL NOT PROSECUTE COMEY FOR LEAKING MEMOS: SOURCESThe light-hearted feud belies the apparent severity of the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation. Officials confirmed Thursday that following a referral from the IG, the department has decided against prosecuting Comey for leaking classified information.“As the IG report on Comey approaches, we’re getting the sound of silence. No Comey tweets. No softball interviews,” he tweeted. “Must be tougher when you get questioned by a DOJ Inspector General. The truth is coming. His actions will come to light. And the verdict won’t be pretty.”After the fact, the FBI classified two of those memos as “confidential.”James Comey tangled with Rep. Mark Meadows in the Twitter arena overnight after the Republican congressman accused the feisty former FBI director of going silent ahead of the release of what could be a damaging inspector general report.“I didn’t consider it part of an FBI file,” Comey told Fox News’ Bret Baier last year. “It was my personal aide-memoire…I always thought of it as mine.”FBI AGENTS RETRIEVED MEMOS FROM COMEY’S HOUSEComey hit back, tweeting that he’s simply waiting “for facts” before speaking publicly and suggesting he’s not concerned – before calling out Meadows for not following the Twitter code of honor:Comey, whom Trump fired in May 2017, denied that sharing the memos with his legal team constituted a leak of classified information. Instead, he compared the process to keeping “a diary.”On May 17, Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to lead the Russia investigation.But Fox News is told the release of Horowitz’s report is “imminent.” And Meadows, R-N.C., entered the fray by suggesting the report will contain damaging details for Comey.  The New York Times published the report with Comey’s memos on May 16, 2017, revealing the contents of the memo which said the president asked him to shut down the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn in an Oval Office meeting.“I love transparency. I just wait for facts before I talk about them. I’m confident the results of all IG reports will show honest public servants worked hard to protect this country from a threat this president and his enablers won’t acknowledge. And @ me next time, bruh.”
