War declared on ‘deep state’ political agenda

‘This goes far beyond incidental surveillance. This was spying on political enemies’


The powerful public interest legal firm American Center for Law and Justice is declaring war on the “deep state,” comprised of entrenched bureaucrats who apparently are using their position and power to try to undermine the president.

“First, the Trump transition team was caught up in surveillance conducted by the Obama administration, wrote ACLJ’s chief counsel, Jay Sekulow. “Second someone in the Obama administration unmasked the names of those on the Trump transition team who were caught up in that surveillance. Third, in its final days, the Obama administration changed the rules in order to widely disseminate this information. Fourth, the deep state bureaucracy leaked this information to the media,”

Sekulow said it’s looking more and more “with each passing day” like “an orchestrated conspiracy where the conspirators’ marching orders come from the highest levels.”

The concept of a “deep state” or “shadow government” isn’t unknown. In the United Kingdom the losing political party forms such a chain of command to “shadow” the sitting government and hold it accountable.

That apparently is what is happening now in the United States. Instead of leaving Washington, as most former presidents have done, President Obama has set up a command center in a mansion only a few miles from the White House.

And since President Trump’s inauguration, there has been an almost steady flow of claims against his administration based on leaked information from the intelligence community.

A central figure has been Susan Rice, Obama’s then-national security adviser, who at one point denied knowing about such activities but has admitted intentionally “unmasking” Trump campaign officials swept up in U.S. surveillance.

“Now we know this goes far beyond incidental surveillance. This was spying on political enemies,” Sekulow said.

His organization has gone to court when the federal government has not been responsive to Freedom of Information Act requests regarding the surveillance.

One complaint, filed this week, is against the National Security Agency and the nation’s director of national intelligence, contending they failed to respond within the allowed time limit.

ACLJ is seeking details of the process through which the government’s rules were changed to allow “dissemination of raw signals intelligence information.”
