Absolutely failing to provide a shred of evidence in court 70 times over to judges Trump not only appointed but was caught reminding them he appointed them and that this meant they “owed” him doesn’t seem to mean anything to these people. And if you think the side you support is so unbelievably dirty that every last one of them lives in paralyzing fear of apparently extremely easily obtained and presumably prolific amounts of evidence of terrible things they’ve done being used as blackmail material you might want to rethink what it is you see in their character. And considering the ways they flagrantly ignore the law in plain sight whatever they don’t want known must be some unthinkably twisted shit.
Also if this undefinable “Deep State” simply decides who is in charge why would they need a guy to “rubber stamp” anything? Much less someone who they would be giving a reason to resent and act against them if they were coercing them with threats. That kind of overcomplicates and endangers the whole secrecy thing.
