KB’s Opinion & Speculation| Recall back to 2017 when Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain joined forced with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, all taking part in a forum that was held in Italy. According to the Gateway Pundit, “We now know McCain and Coats are Deep State.” The news source questions, “Is Graham Deep State too?”
It was reported on September 2, 2017 that John McCain was visiting Italy:
Sen. John McCain is wrapping up the summer congressional recess in northern Italy, where he is attending the Ambrosetti Forum, along with the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., at a panel focused on the United States.
McCain, who is in Italy with wife Cindy McCain, is slated to speak at the gathering on Saturday.
Time reported on the Republican Senator’s speech just a few days after saying:
McCain, who attended the Ambrosetti Forum this weekend with his colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham, pointed to rhetoric from President Donald Trump as a reason some of these long-lasting relationships have been in doubt.
“I realize that I come to Italy at a time when many are questioning whether America is still committed to remaining engaged in the world, to upholding our traditional alliances, and standing up for the values we share,” McCain, a frequent Republican critic of the president, said, according to remarks shared by his staff. “I also realize — and there is no point in avoiding a little straight talk here — that this doubt has much to do with some of the actions and statements of our President.”
McCain used the speech to emphasize the valuable nature of the relationship the United States has with its European allies — especially with Italy, which he noted plays a role “in protecting our common security.” He then said there is a “real debate” occurring in the U.S. about the role it must play in the world and with other countries.
Keep in mind the late Senator McCain’s remarks about “upholding our traditional alliances, and standing up for the values we share.” Could this have been a signal to members of the Italian Deep State who McCain had worked alongside in order to remove Donald Trump from his position as President of the United States?
According to TGP, we are now aware that “DNI and Deep State Dan Coats is not on America’s side. It appears that he too has done all he can to obstruct the President and others attempting to obtain information on the illegal coup to remove the President from office.”
Last year Graham made a name for himself for the first time in decades. Graham was a McCain confidant and hadn’t stood for justice since the Clinton impeachment hearings when he was so effective in building a case against Clinton as a representative in the US House.
Finally, we saw some of that fire when Graham had enough during the Senate Hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
