The Deep State is out to get Donald Trump.
Americans would be shocked to learn the extent of their plot.
And Senator Rand Paul just revealed one of the Deep State’s biggest secrets and now all hell is breaking loose.
Senator Paul stunned Americans when he revealed that anti-Trump FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page still maintain their security clearances.
They were reassigned after it was revealed they had exchanged text messages expressing their hatred of the President and viewed the Russia investigation as “an insurance policy” against him winning.

The blog Hot Air praised Paul for this information because everyone should be alarmed that Deep State operatives who have demonstrated clear political bias can still maintain the ability to search databases containing information on American citizens:
“This is canny packaging by Paul of one of his pet issues. He’s been pushing for months for reforms to FISA’s Section 702 to require a new warrant whenever U.S. intelligence wants to search a database containing information on American citizens that’s been incidentally collected in foreign surveillance. The politics of mass surveillance are rarely galvanizing to either the left or right, though. And despite his endless criticism of the FBI and the “deep state,” Trump isn’t the sort to relinquish a law-enforcement tool that might be useful in sniffing out terrorist plots. Paul’s dilemma, then, is how to tilt the average voter — and the president — towards the side of libertarianism.
The answer is to steer away from abstract arguments and give them a vivid, concrete example: Do you want Peter Strzok or Lisa Page running rogue database queries about Trump and his associates? If he frames this in terms of the Fourth Amendment or “liberty,” people will zone out. If he frames it in terms of “Trump haters” harassing the president, now he’s cooking. The tweet above, in fact, seems phrased to appeal squarely to Trump himself. If you want get the Republican Party excited about civil liberties, you need to get the man who owns the party excited about it. And nothing gets through to him quite like warning him how he, personally, might be getting taken advantage of.”
But it also shows that their reassignment was just a fig leaf.
They still have the power to access classified information and engineer leaks if they so choose.
Does this alarm you?
