FOX News' Steve Hilton says there is enough suspicion to believe that "the establishment in the government bureaucracy" took steps to prevent a Trump presidency. Hilton also called for an investigation "equivalent" to the Mueller probe into possible deep state meddling on Wednesday's broadcast of the Special Report panel.
STEVE HILTON, FOX NEWS HOST: It wasn't that long ago that the left and parts of the establishment media, I'm thinking in particular The New York Times, were deeply suspicious of what we now describe as the 'deep state.' When we had James Clapper going to Congress and lying about surveilling the American people. There this suspicion of the security services and the intelligence agencies. And now that they seem to be against Trump we're supposed to believe that they're purer-than-pure, everything they say is gospel and there is no ground for any suspicion.
I think that there is no question that there are sufficient reasons to think that the establishment in the government bureaucracy thought that the prospect of a Trump presidency was unthinkable, unacceptable, and took steps to try to stop it.
There's enough suspicion there to think that we really do need a thorough investigation that's equivalent to the investigation on Russian meddling -- which is really important -- to get to the potential of deep state meddling.
