The scope of the "deep state" caught one top Republican by surprise.
California Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday about his efforts to raise awareness of bureaucracy within the federal government believed to be undermining President Trump.
"One thing that I tell the American people every time that I speak and I go out on the road and I talk to people is that, remember, the deep state here is much worse than even I thought it ever was," Nunes said in an interview along with Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, to talk about efforts to renew and reform parts of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Trumps distrust of people inside the White House and the federal government has intensified since his impeachment and acquittal, and he believes his government is filled with snakes he wants to be fired and replaced. Steps are already being taken to weed them out.
A network of conservative activists led by Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is helping compile detailed memos of disloyal government officials they want to be fired, while also finding Trump loyalists to replace them, according to Axios.
Nunes, a key Trump ally who was instrumental in drawing attention to alleged government surveillance abuses against the president's 2016 campaign and leakers, also touched on the 2020 election while promoting a website he started, DefendUSA.com, to combat "the radical left, fake news media, and deep state."
The congressman said Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist from Vermont who is the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, is their preferred candidate.
"People have to remember that this is one yard in a cloud of dust. You have to wake up every day to fight, because the socialist Left, they work hard to take over the Democratic Party. They work hard to get Bernie Sanders in the lead," Nunes said. "They're not going away."
They need to start going after the people who spied on the campaign and were involved with the dossier.
Devin Nunes for President 2024.
It does appear that our corrupt pols on both sides used their political positions made billion$ when the political manufacturing reorganization done at US workers expense of both the USSR and China took place.

It may be our only hope.
Nothing but a bunch of "company men." They'll defend the worst, because they are part of the company.
Republicans, by their ‘nature’, are very naive, trusting and avuncular.
Democrats, OTOH, are exactly opposite, even though they claim to be all three. They are mean, suspicious and uncaring for any but themselves.
I believe Nunes just didn’t want to believe it was as bad as it is...................
Good analysis, Red Badger. I’m hoping so, but at times it’s tough. Thanks for the optimism.
Heavenly Father, please guide and strengthen, and PROTECT DJT.
They just killed Philip Haney who did more than anyone to expose Deep State and Muslim Brotherhood in govt. Hopefully his second book will still be published.
