But Senator Rand Paul believes Haspel should share the CIA’s findings with all members of Congress.

Paul, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, exclaimed:

“To my mind this is the very definition of the deep state…”

“The deep state is that the intelligence agencies do things, conclude things, make conclusions but then the elected officials are prevented from knowing about this.”

Paul argued that if lawmakers aren’t allowed to have access to the intelligence community’s conclusions, then they can’t provide oversight.

“If we aren’t told about this and I’m not allowed to know about these conclusions, then I can’t have oversight,” he said.

“And so then state grows, the intelligence, the deep state grows and has more and more power.”

“I’ve read in the media that the CIA has said with high confidence that the crown prince was involved with killing Khashoggi,” Paul continued.

“I have not seen that intelligence nor have I even seen the conclusions. And today there’s yet another briefing and I’m being excluded. So really, this is the deep state at work … that your representatives don’t know what is going on in the intelligence agencies.”

We would be watching our back a little more than normal Senator Paul – truth like this is not acceptable in today’s America.

    • You’re absolutely right Carol and the other person/persons involved are running the Federal Reserve. When the Federal Reserve Act was passed it was probably the greatest act of treason ever perpetrated on the American people. To better understand this, read a book titled: ‘The Creature from Jekyll Island’…..the author’s last name is Griffin. The Federal Reserve was the brainchild of some of the multi Billionaire’s of the time by the names of Rockefeller, Rothschild, JPMorgan, et al. They need to be reined in and audited, but nobody seems to have the balls to get that process started. This is all intertwined with the New World Order/One World Government…….and, NO! I’m not a conspiracy theorist….this crap is for real! Think back to the late 80s and early 90s and try to remember how many times you heard George HW Bush talk about the One World Government….Oh, it’s for real alright! Be prepared!

  1. POTUS TRUMP needs to reign in these intelligence agencies. They are not elected representatives of the citizens, so they must disclose everything they know to the Congress and Senate and White House. Failure to do so should be grounds for immediate dismissal. Same with Judges, they are not elected by citizens so they have no business writing Laws, only elected officials can draft new Laws. Any judge that creates any form of a Law should be dismissed.

    • Twitler is THE last person to be in charge… he is not exactly a man of intelligence nor a man of honor….he is an embarrassment to the US and its people…

  2. If the intelligence agents don’t inform Congress and the White House, they are not doing their jobs. It is not their decision on what to do. Their job is to find true information and inform our , president AND Congress. OBAMA TOOK CONTROL OF THE CIA, THE FBI, AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND TRIED TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

  3. “Government by the people, for the people and of the people.” Not anymore, now our government confiscates our money through “taxation without representation”, as “business as usual”, and you (dumdass) citizen fools just shut the “f” up! Rand Paul is right again. We’ve allowed our government to become our overseers in almost all aspects of our lives. That’s what happens when we vote for socialist dictators, which we have for about a century, with few exceptions. As far as Presidents go Reagan and Trump have been the exceptions. Only a few Senators and Congressmen, are Constitionalist Americans, most however seem to embrace Socialism to at least some degree, and some pathetic ignorant fool’s even voted in openly admitted Socialists! Socialist’s ARE “Big Government Dictators” by definition! I’m afraid my generation (l’m 77) may be the last to understand what it means to be an American, with few exceptions the next one or hopefully two generations following those of mine. Hopefully the Republican party may once again be dominated by “Constitionalist’s”, and maybe, just maybe, the “Socialist party”, may once again just be “Democrats”. I know that’s alot to hope/ask for, but l’ll give it shot…..then again…..oh well….just a pie in the sky dream, ain’t it?………

  4. Rand Paul is right about the swamp running Congress, but Paul is also holding up much needed and justified aid to Israel and I condemn him for that. On that he is wrong.

  5. Sorry to use foul language here today, but this is a “no shit Sherlock” moment for Senator Rand. Of course the deep state is running Congress, and the rest of the US government. Certainly not the American people, although you can’t say we are not trying to wrestle it back from them.
