Among the numerous endorsements former Vice President Joe Biden has received since winning primary contests in 10 of 14 possible states on Super Tuesday, several have come from a particular segment of official Washington, D.C. that won’t surprise anyone.
A group of Deep State operatives who have worked behind the scenes to clear former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing while pointing the finger at President Donald Trump every chance they get, have predictably come out in support of “Sleepy Joe’s” candidacy, Breitbart reports.
Obama-era officials backing Biden
Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice tweeted her support for Biden after his South Carolina primary win, calling him a “decent” man who would lead America with “deep compassion.”
During the previous administration, Rice backed U.S. intervention in Libya that allowed Islamic terrorists get their hooks into that country, Breitbart reported. She also infamously repeated talking points suggesting that outrage over a propaganda video is what led to the violence in Benghazi in 2012 that killed an ambassador and three other Americans, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary.
Obama-era CIA director John Brennan also came out to publicly back Biden, calling him “honest, decent, practical, & experienced,” adding that he thought Biden would “unify” the country and start to rebuild the supposedly flagging standing of America in the world.
Brennan has been a forceful and highly visible critic of President Donald Trump ever since he was relieved of his position as director of the CIA. He admitted that he gathered a group of officials together to investigate whether Trump colluded with Russia during his campaign, and he continues to insist that Trump did collude even after the Mueller investigation couldn’t find any evidence of such after three years and millions of dollars wasted, according to Breitbart.
Former FBI Director James Comey voiced his support for Biden on Super Tuesday. “I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office,” he tweeted. “There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie.”
Comey is another official who tried his best to get dirt on Trump, and his leaks of eventualy disproven material about Trump were instrumental in the 2017 appointment of a special counsel to probe the president, right around the time of his firing from the administration, according to Breitbart.
Loyalty to the Swamp
Not that anyone is surprised, but the administrative Deep State is making it clear to all observers that its loyalties have always been with the Democrats, specifically the establishment wing of the party that is comprised of individuals who have spent virtually their entire professional lives in D.C.
While folks like Brennan and Comey may have succeeded for a while in portraying themselves as loyal to the country and not to partisan interests, it ultimately became clear that they were determined to protect the entrenched bureaucratic structure from a political outsider like Trump no matter the cost.
However, the D.C. establishment and many of its power players have not fared terribly well in the Mueller investigation, in the Justice Department inspector general’s report, or the impeachment process, and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe may not end up going much better for them.
As such, Biden might be well advised to say “thanks, but no thanks” to these endorsements if he wants the support of the majority of Americans who live their lives beyond the Beltway.
