If that order sounds like something out of the criminal underworld, welcome to the Deep State, which is not too deep anymore, writhing and flexing in plain sight.

While Clapper was allegedly targeting Gen. Mike Flynn secretly through Washington Post columnist Ignatius, we know he was also targeting...
