Leading liberals develop blueprint to expand 'deep state' and undercut Trump
WExaminer | Ryan Lovelace
Forlorn liberals took refuge at the American Constitution Society's national convention in Washington this week, discussing whether to encourage the growth of the "deep state" resistance inside the government or fight President Trump from outside.
"The election of Donald Trump was an assault on the federal bureaucracy," William Yeomans said to a room full of students and civil servants, including those recently displaced by Trump's administration. "His values are simply not consistent with the values of people who are committed to public service and who believe deeply in the importance of public service."
UCLA law professor Jon Michaels said he favors filling the Trump administration with liberals opposed to Trump's agenda.
