The Deep State has schemed to take down Donald Trump.

For months they have planted leaks in press stories designed to create an air of scandal that will hamstring the administration.

But the Deep State just got bad news as Congress is zeroing in on their leader.

Ben Rhodes was the Deputy National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.

He was a figure of great controversy.

In order to sell the Iran deal, he created a press “echo chamber” where he could plant false stories about the negotiations and sell the American people on Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal.

Conservatives have pointed to Rhodes and his echo chamber as the culprits behind the illegal leaks of classified information plaguing the Trump administration.

There has been on average one leak a day since Trump has taken office.

All of this has added up to a plot against Trump designed to ruin his Presidency by forcing him to resign or creating a toxic environment that guarantees he lose the re-election in 2020.

But one Congressman revealed that Trey Gowdy is digging into the Deep State’s plot and that it is bad news for Rhodes and other big names from the Obama administration.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., wouldn’t say Saturday whether the House Oversight Committee is going to call former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to testify about potentially playing a role in the leaks from the Trump administration of classified information to reporters.

During an interview with MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt, DeSantis admitted he’s spoken to his committee’s chairman, Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, about it, and while he would defer to Gowdy to identify people of interest, he did say the panel has brought in some “big names.”

“They’re doing a lot more than what the press knows in terms of some of the people they have brought in,” DeSantis said. “They’ve brought in some big names that I’m not authorized to say…

…. Hewitt had asked DeSantis about Rhodes in particular because of an interview he did recently with the Washington Free Beacon in which he accused Rhodes of being a primary source of the leaks causing harm to the Trump administration and called on Trump to remove all Obama official holdovers from his administration.

DeSantis further explained to Hewitt that Rhodes may be in contact with Obama holdovers in the National Security Council, who are behind the “selective leaking” hurting Trump’s ability to conduct foreign policy.”

Reining in the Deep State has become a critical endeavor.

These leakers are not whistle blowers trying to expose wrong doing.

It is a deliberate attempt to overturn the results of the election.

Conservatives believe these leakers must be rooted out and held accountable.

And that means the administration and Congressional Republicans must go beyond “naming and shaming” the Deep State leakers.

They need to prosecute the individuals who illegally leaked classified information.
