Hannity Guests Discuss “the Deep State”

AND ITS EFFECT ON UPCOMING INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT

by Sharon Rondeau

(Jun. 5, 2018) — On Tuesday’s “Hannity” show, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News contributor, and former White House spokesman Sean Spicer said that they believe DOJ and FBI employees are attempting to “slow down” the publication of the DOJ Inspector General’s anticipated report on the FBI’s handling of its Hillary Clinton private server investigation.

The report is expected to consist of between 400 and 500 pages assembled from nearly 18 months of the IG’s investigation into whether or not the FBI broke protocols in its probe of Clinton’s use of the private, unauthorized server over which she sent classified information but for which Clinton was not criminally charged as she sought the Oval Office.

Following Chaffetz and Spicer, investigative journalist Sara Carter was Hannity’s guest, during which time she said that the DOJ and FBI are attempting to “slow-roll” the release of the report as they make redactions for alleged “national security” reasons.

Carter maintained that redactions by the DOJ and FBI have been insisted upon in reports issued by congressional committee members only to be discovered to have posed no threat to national security, sources or methods.

Carter’s new column released Tuesday is titled, “Lawmakers Warn IG Being Pressured to Slow Roll Clinton FBI Report.”

Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg JarreTt then said that he believes former FBI Director James Comey “is in deep trouble” given his exoneration of Clinton on July 5, 2016 in a solo press conference wherein he berated her for a litany of transgressions but said that there was no criminal case.  Jarrett then divulged that he has interviewed four “former federal prosecutors” who were reportedly very critical of Comey’s actions.  He termed the review by the FBI and DOJ of the IG’s report an attempt to “sanitize” it.

“They have been obstructing at the FBI and DOJ,” Jarrett said in closing his segment.

As Carter predicted several weeks ago, her new report stated that the IG’s report “is expected to be ‘long and thorough’ and will criticize the handling of the investigation by former FBI Director James Comey.”

In the following segment, guest and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said that parts of the FBI and DOJ became “corrupted” beyond anyone’s ability to understand, although he did not provide a time frame or specifically name anyone.  He did, however, refer to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as part of “the Deep State,” a term used by many Trump-administration observers who believe that entrenched political operatives in what are expected to be apolitical government positions are attempting to undermine the Trump administration.

“This report is going to be so big and so devastating” that it will be “impossible” to ignore, Gingrich predicted.  Joining President Trump’s almost daily opining on Twitter, he called the investigation into Russian “meddling” and alleged “collusion” by the Trump campaign led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller “a witch hunt.”

Despite that, Gingrich expressed confidence in “the American justice system” to expose any bad actors.

    Bob68 indeed you couldn’t have said it any better than you did. Thanks.

    Since there are more Citizens than Congressmen and Senators it won’t be a fair fight
    when Trump exposes the deception and fraud. When the offal hits the fan and should
    a huge mass of Citizens respond, it won’t be pretty. Heads will roll.

    Further, I surmise as Team Arpaio has claimed so too Trump has had an insurance plan
    in place should he meet foul play. Still, once some rats begin to “roll over” others will
    follow and game over. Here too both Dems and the GOP will take a hit…

    When I listen to Hannity and his guest they often say they don’t understand why the Deep State and Obama are so afraid of Trump that they began spying on him, and his campaign, back in 2015. Seems to me most of them, and for sure Hannity, know for a fact Obama is an ineligible, identity fraud con-artist, and Trump scares the heck out of those complicit in putting Barry in office and covering for his massive fraud. Trump could reveal and act on the Obama Fraud, which involves most of Congress and the entire Deep State, and drain the swamp almost overnight. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Trump will do that…..but the Deep State doesn’t want that possibility hanging over them so they are trying everything possible to get Trump out of office. As early as 2009 I was posting Congress would never do anything to expose the truth about Barry because when they did nothing to stop him from being sworn in back in 2009, they gave America’s government and her military to the enemy…..a serious crime if there ever was one. It’s 2018 and the complicit in the mother of all crimes against America and her Constitution are still protecting Obama and anyone who could lead to him….to protect themselves. Unlikely in 2015 Trump was being spied on because they needed insurance to stop Trump from winning the presidency. What they needed was assurance that Trump was not about to drop a truth bomb on Obama and the entire charade of Obama being a legitimate president. Today that fear is driving the panic of the left and…..it’s obvious.
