Wait, I was told the very idea of a "shadow government" or "deep state" was fantastical right wing nonsense. Yet here you have a former CIA official and current CNN analyst wondering why they haven't staged a coup yet.
CNN analyst and former CIA official Philip Mudd on Monday wondered whether "almost a shadow government” will come out against President Donald Trump after the controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Curious point in American government: When do we see almost a shadow government come out and say, ‘we cannot side with the government,’ whether it’s the Cabinet or the Senate,” Mudd said during a broadcast in Helsinki, Finland.
