Maybe you've heard, conservatives have been talking about government insiders undermining the Trump presidency; Obama officials and old, swamp-dwelling hands that are pushing a secret agenda behind the scenes. Is all this "deep state" talk just wild speculation?
The Supreme Court will hear Trump vs. Hawaii later this month, where President Trump's "travel ban" (vetting travelers from foreign nations with ties to terror organizations) will be reviewed by the Supreme Court. An Amicus Brief, meaning "friend of the court" was filed on behalf of Hawaii, who is suing the president over his policy.
According to the Daily Caller
, "Signatories to the brief who fall into this category include John Brennan, former director of the CIA, and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence. Both men have been intensely critical of President Donald Trump and resigned their posts effective the day he took office."
The briefs are typically filed by third parties that wish to argue in favor of one side or the other. This one was filed by, "The 52 signatories to the brief served in various diplomatic and national security capacities." The signatories are "aware of no specific threat or deficiencies in the current visa vetting system that would justify the complete, country-wide suspensions of travel to the United States prescribed here,”; now you know the Deep State is a thing.
