Well, first of all, it is not a conspiracy. It is something that operates in broad daylight. It is not a conspiratorial cabal. These are simply people who have evolved [into] a kind of position. It is in their best interest to act in this way.
Not everything about the deep state operates “in broad daylight.” That’s ridiculous. And there are many conspiratorial cabals. They may not be the people he is talking about, but they certainly exist.
