Revenge of the Deep State

NY Times opinion headline:
Trump Demeaned Bureaucrats. This Is Their Revenge.
Ahh, that is what impeachment is all about. Deep State bureaucrats with foreign ethnic allegiances seemed to have gotten authority over policy with Ukraine, but Pres. Trump upset their plans. A female Russian-American had her feelings hurt when she was reassigned. Now they are getting their revenge by testifying against Trump at the Schiff hearings. From a NY Times editorial:
Representative Adam Schiff, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, interrupted the questioning to let the ambassador know that the president was attacking her.

After reading Ms. Yovanovitch one of the belligerent tweets, Mr. Schiff asked: “What effect do you think that has on other witnesses’ willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing?”

“Well, it’s very intimidating,” she said, visibly shaken.

Mr. Schiff assured her that “some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously.”

Translation: The president may just have earned himself an article of impeachment.
Really? Trump tweets a criticism of a traitorous incompetent Democrat stooge, Schiff reads it to her during her testimony, and the NY Times says that this is grounds for impeaching Trump!

News reports of this criticism cited other examples of Trump criticizing his enemies, as if there is something wrong with that.

If Trump has erred, it has been in tolerating his enemies much more than he should. Apparently his administration is filled with swamp-dwellers who actively work to undermine his agenda.
