This all started as a tweet from John Brennan (Former CIA Director (2013-17)):
When the full extent of your [Trump's] venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.
To which Samantha Powers (Professor of Practice @Harvard. Former U.S. Ambassador to UN) responded:
Not a good idea to piss off John Brennan
John Cardillo then notes:
In one tweet @SamanthaJPower perfectly explained why we have a Second Amendment. #2A
Or more diplomatically (but no less correct), Dinesh D’Souza (who knows something about this):
The Left wants us to be frightened of the Deep State on the grounds that we don’t control it, it controls us
Or still more diplomatically, but no less emphatic(ally correct), from Robert Barnes:
As we watch reaction to McCabe sacking by McCabe, Comey, Brennan & Powers, they reveal the degree to which they only think in terms of power (retaliatory threats against Trump) & reveal how deeply they believe they are above the law (they expected Sessions to ignore OIG & OPR).
My man, John Nolte, writes an entire article about this, Threats Against Trump Made by John Brennan and Samantha Power Must Be Investigated. His twitter tease is good and applies to this post:
If the Deep State wants to fool us into believing the Deep State doesn’t exist, the Deep State might want to stop making these kinds of Deep Statey threats.
