An interesting tidbit from CNN, where Philip Mudd serves as a counterterrorism analyst: back in 2005, at the establishment of the FBI’s National Security Branch, then-FBI Director Robert Mueller appointed Mudd to serve as the branch’s first-ever deputy director, so we know he and Mueller go back.
He retired as the FBI’s senior intelligence adviser, and on Monday he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper he’s waiting for “almost a shadow government” to come out and say, “We can’t side with the government.”
Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire has the video clip.

Hmm … the emergence of a shadow government. Interesting … in theory, of course.
You mean the one that’s already opposing him?

Obama already has that covered

He means another one right?

You mean they want another one? Obama/Hillary/Brennan/Clapper and Comey isn't enough?

He's acknowledging a shadow government, it's called Deep State.

We already have one. It's called the deep state.

Isn’t that the definition of the deep state ?

the shadow government that doesn't exist needs to step out of the shadows and assert itself even though it doesn't exist 'cause ya know the shadow govt/deep state is a conspiracy theory.

Are they admitting on TV that there is a deep state now? https://t.co/s7M4QgDNoU

Let me get this straight, this meathead is openly saying, that the elected help need their "non elected betters" to steer the ship? I bet this is exactly what the founding fathers thought we needed. Just the idea that government is so bloated, that such a thing is real, is awful.

Someone get him the memo. There exists a shadow goverment (Globalists and Marxists) and deep state (bureaucrats and >9,000 SES) actively working to overthrow a democratically elected president. Mudd pie needs to pull his head out of his A double snake.

They say insane stuff like this then run around thinking they're somehow more rational and reasonable than Trump.

Don’t they already have that in place? It’s the MSM… not working too well for them thankfully.

@CNN has gone full coup, it was only a matter of time. They have wanted to over throw our government for months
— Ginger (@missgingerbaker) July 16, 2018
CNN has gone full tilt. It's only a matter of time before they are unequivocally endorsing either a Daylight Coup or the assassination of the a president. https://t.co/xj45KBmlj0

THIS is treason. But because it’s on CNN no one’s likely to notice. https://t.co/Vts5qX7Zae
