Despite being weakened, the deep state is still at war with President Trump.
Their operatives are lurking in the corners of the White House, waiting to strike.
But with one question that Trump hadn’t even considered, Rand Paul may have destroyed them for good.
Virtually every high-level official with anti-Trump loyalties has been taken down.
But the anti-Trump movement is still working to creep their way back into the higher levels of the Trump administration.
And in a shocking turn of events, somebody who Trump nominated could actually be an agent of the deep state.
On the surface, CIA director nominee Gina Haspel seems to be a good fit in the Trump administration.
That’s why every single Republican Senator is supporting her.
Well, every Republican Senator besides one.
Senator Rand Paul is refusing to support Haspel, and for good reason.
Paul is wondering whether Haspel was involved in spying on Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.
His suspicion is well warranted.
Haspel was very high up in the CIA as the spying was going on.
It is not only possible, but extremely likely that Haspel either knew it was going on, or was directly involved.
As reported by Politico:
“Rand Paul has one last question for CIA director nominee Gina Haspel: Was she at all involved with any surveillance of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign?
The Kentucky senator sent Haspel a letter on Tuesday laying out his suspicions. The missive amounts to a last-minute effort to derail Haspel before her expected confirmation by attempting to get the president’s own CIA nominee to admit to being aware of the intelligence community monitoring the president.
“She’s high enough up in the CIA. I think we should know what she knows about whether the Trump campaign was surveilled upon,” Paul said on Fox News. “Before she’s appointed, if she is indeed appointed, I would like to know what does she know about the surveillance of the Trump campaign and why was the CIA involved?”
Trump in 2017 accused former President Barack Obama of having his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower in New York. The Justice Department later said there was no evidence of any such wiretaps. One Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, was the subject of FBI surveillance, and other Trump advisers had conversations with people who were being monitored.
Paul is the only Republican senator who opposes Haspel right now. Enough Democrats have come out in support of her this week to seal her confirmation before the end of the month.”
If Haspel was indeed directly involved in spying on the President, that would be relevant information for him to know.
And if she knew it was going on, she should at the very least be required to explain herself.
This new revelation could be a serious warning sign about her future in the Trump administration.
She currently has enough support, as a number of Democrats have decided to support her nomination, and could be confirmed by the end of the month.
Do you think that Trump should look into whether his CIA nominee was involved in spying on his campaign?
