Former Congressman Ron Paul claims ‘shadow government’ at work
Former Congressman Ron Paul claimed the Deep State or “secret government” were responsible for fanning the flames of hysteria over President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin.
When Paul was asked why the mainstream media was so up in arms about Trump’s meeting with Russian President in Helsinki, he said the hand of the “shadow government was at work.”
“It’s hard to say, but we usually describe that there is a secret government that likes to control things and most people know what we talk about when we talk about the ‘deep state.’ And they do have a lot of clout, they are very much involved in the media and the leadership of both parties, so both parties and the media are very, very, annoyed with Trump [being so] independent,” said Paul.
According to Infowars: The former Congressman also made the point that the deep state is paranoid about how much will be revealed about its own meddling in the affairs of foreign countries if Trump and Putin continue the dialogue.
“I guess it would come out on how much we’ve been involved when we shouldn’t be involved, for instance in Ukraine, and how that occurred,” he said.
Paul went on to call out media and political personalities who he said had become “completely unhinged” over Trump’s attempts to move towards peace.
Trump was savaged by the media for putting Russia’s interests before America’s when he appeared to throw the nation’s intelligence agencies “under the bus”.
However, Trump was clearly referring to elements of the deep state who control the intelligence agencies, the secret government that exploits America’s name and resources to further its own interests.
During the historic summit between US President Trump and Russian President Putin in Helsinki, Russia’s leader highlighted the international threat posed by billionaire globalist George Soros.
When asked about accusations that he attempted to manipulate, Putin explained that Russian individuals do not represent the whole of Russia, just as George Soros meddling in US elections isn’t representative on the rest of the United States.
“Take George Soros, for example,” Putin explains.
“Who uses his billions of dollars of capital. But that doesn’t make his position the posture of the United States, does it? No, it does not.”
As U.S. President Donald Trump stood side-by-side with Vladimir Putin on Monday, he refused to blame the Russian leader for meddling in the 2016 elections.
Instead, Trump suggested he doubts the findings of his own intelligence agencies, sparking a storm of criticism at home.
