The Deep State is real.

Barack Obama and the leadership in the FBI unleashed the Deep State on Donald Trump by spying on him during the 2016 campaign, and then made illegal leaks of classified information once he took office.

But that’s all about to change because Trey Gowdy just said the 11 words that spells doom for Obama’s Deep State.

In an interview on Fox News, Gowdy stated that a special counsel was necessary to investigate the misdeeds at the FBI because of the Department of Justice’s conflict of interest.

He said “…a special counsel is the only entity that can do this effectively.

Breitbart reports:

“Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told host Bill Hemmer he saw the appointment of a special counsel to investigate potential wrongdoing at the Department of Justice as the only means to possible given the conflicts of interest.

Gowdy argued the inspector general was incapable of interviewing witnesses beyond the employment of the Justice Department.

“The Department of Justice has a conflict, so they should not conduct the investigation,” Gowdy said. “Michael Horowitz, the inspector general, does not have access to non-DOJ employees, or those that have left the department or the FBI. So, he can’t do it. It needs to be done. It needs to be done by somebody your viewers have confidence in. I’ve been reluctant in the past to call for a special counsel, Bill. But this is a unique fact pattern, and I think special counsel is the only entity that can do this effectively.”

The FBI has a lot to answer for.

Critics contend they misled the FISA court on their application for a warrant to spy on Carter Page by not disclosing that the source of their information—the Steele dossier—was paid for by the Clinton campaign.

And former Director James Comey is alleged to have broken the law when he leaked memos about his conversations with President Trump that contained classified information.

And an upcoming Inspector General’s report is expected to detail how former deputy director Andrew McCabe misled investigators about press leaks he engineered during the Hillary Clinton email probe.

For months, Trump supporters wondered why the leadership at the Department of Justice sat on its hands while the Deep State fed stories to the press in an effort to wreck the Trump Presidency.

Now it appears the scandal is reaching a critical mass and inaction is no longer an option.

Do you think Jeff Sessions will appoint a special counsel to investigate the corruption and possible criminal behavior at the FBI?
