Mark Penn, Former Clinton Pollster: ‘Deep State’ Did Indeed Conduct ‘Sting Operation’ on Team Trump


A former pollseter for Bill and Hillary Clinton went on New York AM 970 radio, “The Cats Roundtable,” and told host John Catsimatidis that the “Deep State” did indeed conduct a “sting operation” on Donald Trump’s campaign.

The remarks are especially significant given Penn’s former Clinton ties. He’s not exactly a Team Trumper — not exactly a member of the far right. And he’s been speaking out critically about the Robert Mueller investigation for days now.

His most recent remarks also come as the nation is learning more and more about the Deep State’s implant of a Cambridge professor, Stefan Halper — a spy — in the Trump campaign to target three officials: George Papadopolous, Sam Clovis and Carter Page.

But here’s the remarks from Penn, via Breitbart:

Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn examined the “out of hand” Robert Mueller investigation into President Donald Trump, saying the “deep state is clearly in a deep state of desperation.”

“Every day we discover more and more potential abuses — that the investigation didn’t have a foundation, that they used this flaky dossier, you know, that was never substantiated as part of their investigation,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis on his Sunday broadcast.

He continued,” And now, we’re finding out on top of that … perhaps they were even setting up a sting operation even before the investigation to try to entrap the Trump campaign, and you’re wondering, ‘Is that the American government?’”
