(Tea Party 247) – The swamp never really got that empty, did it?
President Donald Trump is now a former president, and looking back on the four years he did daily battle with the Deep State as they sought to undermine and subvert the will of the American people in electing him, it’s easy to see why the swamp may have won this round.
It was all around him.
Trump appointed CIA Director Gina Haspel resigned from the outgoing administration one day before President Joe Biden was sworn in on January 20th.
Appointed to head the agency in 2018, Haspel became the first woman to fill the post.

This is something that, had she been nominated by a Democrat, she would have been hailed as a hero and unanimously confirmed.
Instead, she was subject to the usual propagandistic and hypocritical grilling by virtue-signaling Senate Democrats who used the entire Trump era to loudly complain and fashioned that into their platform.
Of course, Haspel herself would go on to prove a loyal proselyte of the ways of the Deep State.
The Gateway Pundit calls to mind that Haspel blocked the release of Spygate-linked documents which would have shed light on the degree to which the previous administration, in which the now-President served, used intelligence to infiltrate the Trump campaign and later presidency.
“According to his handwritten notes, former CIA Director Brennan subsequently briefed President Obama and other senior national security officials on the intelligence, including the ‘alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016 of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal and claiming interference by Russian security services,’” Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe has said.
Haspel, they note, was hand-picked by former CIA Director John Brennan to head up the CIA’s operations in London in the 2016 election.
This is also where one Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy hired by the Clinton campaign to dig up phony “intelligence” on Donald Trump, was based, by the way.
No wonder she blocked the release.
The Federalist’s Sean Davis has said that Haspel was personally blocking the declassification of Spygate-linked documents.
“I’m told that it is Gina Haspel personally who is blocking continued declassification of these documents that will show the American people the truth of what actually happened,” he reported.
“Many of the people blocking these documents are likely implicated by them. You have these career bureaucrats whose careers may be destroyed by the facts within them,” Davis told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in October.
Meanwhile, over the weekend, Ratcliffe issued a letter to Congress explaining that the CIA, under Haspel, had also worked to cover up Chinese interference in the 2020 election.
