FBI confirms U.S. has a shadow government

According to Melissa Dykes of Activist Post, reportedly Bill Clinton once told senior White House reporter Sarah McClendon:

“Sarah, there’s a government inside the government, and I don’t control it.”

[Note: Some attribute the quote to George Herbert Walker Bush.]
Call it “deep state,” “secret government,” “double government” or “shadow government,” the terms all refer to more or less the same thing — that representative government in the U.S. is an illusion because we are actually ruled by a shadowy, unelected group of élites.
So who make up the shadow government?
One view is that the CIA initially formed America’s secret government. After 1981, it morphed into the “deep state” — an amalgamation of private corporations and enterprises, the media, telecommunications and social media which run most of the U.S. government from behind the scenes. (See “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, CIA, and America’s deep-state secret government“)
A more prosaic and less bombastic view of the shadow government is the Administrative State — the vast federal government bureaucracies staffed by unelected, faceless officials who, in “administering” the U.S. government, effectively are the government because they make the myriad of  administrative rules and regulations that implement the vague policies devised by Congress. In so doing, those faceless officials wield power over every facet of our lives. (See “America is ruled by an unelected double government“)
The Powers That Be - deep state
Now a recent dump of FBI’s files on the Hillary Clinton investigation reveals there really is a shadow government.
On October 17, 2016, the FBI issued nearly 100 new pages of notes and interview summaries concerning the Bureau’s decision not to launch a criminal charge against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton over her use of an unsecured email server. The FBI documents include an interview with an unnamed individual, who claimed that Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to Clinton went through a powerful group called the 7th Floor Group or the Shadow Government. Here’s page 56 of the FBI document:

There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE [State Department] officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) process. Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries. The known regular attendees included Jonathan FINER, Chief of Staff for Secretary of State John KERRY, Jennifer STOUT, Deputy Chief of Staff, Heather HIGGINBOTTOM, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, [Patrick] KENNEDY, Julia FRIFIELD, Assistant Secretary, Legislative Affairs, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser, [REDACTED] Office of the Legal Adviser overseeing STATE’s [REDACTED] and [REDACTED].

Here’s a screenshot of page 56 (h/t Activist Post):

The FBI issued the document containing the “7th floor group” on October 17. By October 19, two days later, someone had already posted an entry on “7th floor group” on Wikipedia, which says:

The 7th floor refers to the 7th floor of the Harry S Truman Building in Washington, DC, which acts as the office building for the US State Department, and contains a 7th floor that has no windows. […]
The 7th Floor Group is said to regularly discuss FOIA processes and Congressional records. Hillary Clinton’s office was located on the 7th Floor of the US State Department Headquarters, where she met with her top advisers, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and others. […] Currently, the 7th Floor Group meets on Wednesdays, which includes Secretary of State John Kerry, Deputy Chief of Staff Jennifer Park Stout, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom, Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield, and members of the Office of the Legal Adviser.

Does he look like the shadow government to you?

I don’t believe the 7th Floor Group is America’s actual shadow government, and certainly not the deep state. From its membership, the 7th Floor Group appears to be a collection of mid-level State Department officials. They are mere flunkies, just a step above we the little people — the public faces behind whom are the real powers that be. Like all puppeteers, those in the shadow government operate strictly behind the curtains.
Of course, talk of a shadow government immediately identifies you as a “conspiracy theory” nutcase, to be mocked, derided and dismissed.
By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the label “conspiracy theory” to discredit anyone who raised questions about the official narrative of the JFK assassination?

“…did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the label “conspiracy theory” to discredit anyone who raised questions about the official narrative of the JFK assassination?”
Now that kind of brazen chutzpah does take one aback: a classic pre-emptive strike, as the pot damns the kettle for being ‘too black’!

Great post with good intell. I would say that the CIA would be the backbone or infrastructure of the deep state, and that this “7th Floor Group” is one of their apparatchik arms. I would go so far as to say that the deep state or secret government is fluid, in that it can MORPH: They won’t be limited to one group or apparatus. It is important to note that the CIA is the real government, in that they take their orders from the Rothschild Gang, ultimately. They pull the Rothschilds’ strings on governments and people. They run the black… Read more »

I would like to know how well or not, the different global elitist groups get along with each other. How many groups are there? Is Soros a part of the Rothschild bunch? Who do the world’s royals align with? Who do our own US military/industrial complex black ops align with? With the kind of power these evil, narcissist people crave, it would be interesting to know the history of the power struggles between the global elitists.

I have adopted the view outlined by Joseph Farrell in his ¨Nazi International,¨ ¨The Reich of the Black Sun¨ and ¨The Third Way,¨ by Alfred W. McCoy in his “The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade” and by William Engdahl in “A Century of War, Anglo-American Oil Politics And The New World Order.” See also Peter Dale Scott´s writings. Essentially I am referring to a consortium of intelligence agencies, their bankers and the drug cartels who finance themselves off money laundering and resource expropriation. Post WW2 theft of Axis booty was used to finance intelligence agencies… Read more »

I have to question just how powerful these little people are. I have my doubts. I would suspect they are the front group reporting back to their handlers. For this group could be stopped in a nano. I would also suspect Soros is in there somewhere since everyone has their hand out to him. Just look at all the dirty and dangerous groups that BO has let into “our” White House that should have never been given the clearance. And the power that has been turned over to the UN. Perhaps there is more than one group holding control over… Read more »

There in little doubt that a “deep State” does exist and has its own agenda which is not aligned with the American People.
