Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 02, 2018

President Donald Trump accused the Justice Department Tuesday of being part of the "deep state" and urged prosecution against a top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey. He also claimed that U.S. sanctions on North Korea were having a "big impact" and that he was responsible for preventing commercial aviation deaths in 2017. As he remains shadowed by the special counsel's Russia investigation, Trump has seized on recent revelations of anti-Trump behavior by some FBI officials, including some who once worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, to claim bias against him. The president's reference Tuesday to "Deep State Justice Dept" suggests that federal law enforcement is part of an entrenched bureaucracy that Trump and his supporters say didn't want him to be elected and is actively working to undermine his presidency

He might as well say FBI is part of the 'Boogie Boogie Step Step State'.

What he means is FBI trying to enforce the law, and he resents being personally held to that standard.

I liked the part where last week the Dep Dir of the FBI confirmed to Congress that Comey told him about Trump's loyalty pledge at the time.

"Trump first embraced the so-called "deep state" in a tweet in late November 2017 after, apparently, watching a segment on Fox News.

Consider what's being alleged here: That the Justice Department is refusing to prosecute criminals -- including the former director of the FBI! -- because the deep state is protecting those people.

That sounds a little off, right? Like, if your uncle spent 15 minutes at Christmas dinner bending your ear with that exact theory, you would ask your mom afterward: "What is the deal with Uncle Harold?"

Now, consider the source: This is the President of the United States we are talking about. The most powerful person in the country -- and maybe the world. The person who chose the man -- Jeff Sessions -- who runs the Justice Department."

"He (Trump) also claimed that U.S. sanctions on North Korea were having a "big impact" and that he was responsible for preventing commercial aviation deaths in 2017."

The man is as crazy as a --------- rat.
