The extraordinary story published Friday night in The New York Times headlined F.B.I. Opened Inquiry into Whether Trump was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia tells us how deeply sick the Washington establishment has become.
A group of bureaucrats elected by no one sat in a room and decided they would investigate the new president of the United States for possible treason. Let me repeat: treason. This is, after all, the implication of this investigation.
This group of bureaucrats reports to no one in elected authority. In a Justice Department where employees gave 97 percent of their presidential campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton, the hostility toward and fear of newly elected President Trump was deep.
The senior members of the Justice Department (all promoted under the Obama administration) were clearly prepared to go all-out to repudiate the verdict of the American people in the 2016 election.
Further, these were Justice Department bureaucrats who had ignored the Clinton Foundation scandals, minimized the investigation into the Clinton email and Internet scandal, and ignored former President Clinton collecting money from Russians overseas while his wife was secretary of state.
Suddenly, these hitherto passive, dispassionate, and tolerant law enforcement bureaucrats were galvanized into investigating a president for possible treason.
When they made this decision, who did they share it with? Obviously, they could not go to President Trump, since he was the target of their investigation.

And nothing will be done about it.
This just in from the doh-j. YUGE cricket sounds being heard from doh-j HQ.
This would be the time for the Senate to call down hellfire on the DOJ, but don’t hold your breathe.
The FBI along with the CIA has decided it sits in judgement of the President AND his policies. It illegally secretly investigates him and passes judgement on whether how he has decided on the policies he embarks on.
This was a coup attempting to neutralize our vote.
They must be disbanded. All legitimate intelligence functions should pass over to DOD.
How long can the Republic survive deep state coups?
Hillary and Obama lead a coup attempt and they walk free.
Justice = Indict; try; convict; sentence; publicly hang.
Thank you Jeff, that’s the second time that’s happened with Fox site in the last month or so and I don’t know what’s happening.
Sessions is working behind the scenes.
Trust the plan
Millions of sealed indictments ready to go
Q Q Q
Huber is on it
Blah Blah Blah.
President Trump needs to start firing everyone.
Yep, heads should roll over this but it’s doubtful they will.
Ruthie is healthy, down in Gitmo, and supervising the upcoming tribunals. You heard it here first.
Let us never forget hysterical “Never Trumpism” and blacklisting of Trump supporters was birthed by Republicans. Those Republicans have never taken ownership of it.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
“Let us never forget hysterical Never Trumpism and blacklisting of Trump supporters was birthed by Republicans.”
I haven’t forgotten any of the bullying, intolerant Hussein Head pieces of obama HERE.
Newt NAILS it exactly.
Unfortunately not a surprise.
This was Stzrok,Page,McCabe behaving disgracefully.
We may not even survive this one as it is still ongoing.
Remember, what you call "deep state" is in truth, just our government.
Should enough citizens finally get fed up with our government doing nothing of consequence to those responsible and decide to take it to the streets, what results may be quite different than what our founders invisioned.
