But these saboteurs have remained nameless by operating in the shadows.
Now one Congressman revealed who is the biggest threat to Trump.
Former Congressman Jason Chaffetz appeared on Fox and Friends and explained the Deep State’s efforts to sabotage Trump.
He claimed the Department of Justice has the manpower to prosecute leakers, but Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who also appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel on the Russia investigation – is acting as a roadblock.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Department of Justice isn’t going far enough to crack down on the illegal leaks flowing out of the executive branch, former Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning, adding that the “deep state” is trying to keep President Trump from restructuring the federal government.
“They need to start putting people in handcuffs,” Chaffetz said. “The deputy attorney general has no credibility on this, he is doing a press conference, most people don’t understand there are 72 inspectors general that have 13,000 employees. There are 500 inspectors general in just the Department of Justice. Report after report after report, when I was chairing [the House Oversight Committee], we read reports making criminal referrals to the Department of Justice and they don’t prosecute these people.”
“We could sit here all day long, look at people in the past, federal employees, violated the law documented by the inspector general, go put them in handcuffs we’ll get some credibility.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently announced a substantial increase in the number of leak investigations.
He also revealed four individuals had been charged with leaking classified information.
But more could be done.
The leaks are how the swamp is trying to derail Trump.
Why isn’t the Deputy Attorney General ordering more prosecution?
Trump supporters have suspected his motives since he appointed swamp creature Robert Mueller to probe allegations of Russian collusion.
That endeavor is coming up empty so Mueller is expanding his investigation into Trump’s businesses in order to conjure up any flimsy reason to justify Trump’s impeachment.
Rosenstein set him on that case and Chaffetz claims he is an obstacle into Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp by kneecapping the Deep State.
The first step in draining the swamp could be finding a new Deputy Attorney General.
