Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has never backed down the deep state corruption and despite harsh criticism has continued to expose its existence. His recent interview on Hannity is nothing short of a whistle-blowing break down of how deep the corruption really goes. It’s well worth watching.
According to The Washington Post, when the interviewer, NPR’s Rachel Martin, noted that it’s not the attorney general’s job to protect the president, Gingrich — tellingly — quibbled with the premise.
“No, that’s not true. It is the attorney general’s job to enforce the law,” Gingrich noted. He added that there was not yet any evidence of a crime. “So what is Mueller investigating?” he said. “Mueller’s engaged in a fishing expedition,” he added.
“If you believe the Justice Department doesn’t have a deep cultural bias, and you believe that the average conversation at the Justice Department is not anti-Trump, you’re living in a fantasyland,” Gingrich said. “And that’s the president’s frustration.”

To Trump’s critics, these assertions come off as paranoid fear of a non-existent shadow government and an effort to create a scapegoat for the White House’s struggles. But to Trump’s supporters, this represents an overdue challenge to an elite ruling class concerned only with maintaining its own grasp on power.
“Of course, the deep state exists. There’s a permanent state of massive bureaucracies that do whatever they want and set up deliberate leaks to attack the president,” said Newt Gingrich, a Trump confidant. “This is what the deep state does: They create a lie, spread a lie, fail to check the lie and then deny that they were behind the lie.”
Historians believe the concept of the “deep state” comes from Turkey, where the term “derin devlet” meant a clandestine network, including intelligence and military officers, which protected the ruling class in the 1920s. Similar ideas have taken hold in Egypt, where the military has allied itself with powerful business interests, and Pakistan, with its robust intelligence service.
