The Deep State Is in Deep Trouble

Why would some "concerned citizen" suddenly leak information to ABC that Jeff Sessions was under investigation for perjuring himself (about Russia, of course) during his confirmation hearing now almost a year behind us?

Could it have something to do with the fact that the man who instigated that investigation was none other than Andrew McCabe, only recently fired by Sessions? Was someone or some group -- the ABC report specifies "sources" with an "s" -- trying to make the attorney general's act seem one of revenge, and thus illegitimate?

No doubt. But the problem is that Sessions was long ago exonerated of this charge by none other than Robert Mueller.

Furthermore, just hours after ABC trumpeted its "exclusive," current FBI director Christopher Wray reaffirmed that the firing of McCabe was justified. Indeed, he asserted that politics didn't influence McCabe's firing at all, and that the FBI was now operating "by the book." (Not, one would hope, the same book that appeared in Susan Rice's email.)

This leak is yet another manifestation of panic on the part of the cabal that tried to upend Trump's presidency. The Deep State is in deep trouble -- at least that part of it, anyway. (The part that wrote the omnibus budget bill seems to be doing just fine.)

And why are they so panicky?

Well, as we know, the inspector general's report is coming out soon, although some now say it may be delayed to as late as May. But that would only be because it is growing more extensive and thus more worrying to certain parties. And a secret prosecutor, it is known, is now working with the IG, making it more worrying still.
