Commenting on the "deep state" and the occult in the federal government, Lt. Col. (ret.) Robert Maginnis, a Pentagon security and intelligence official and a senior fellow for National Security with the Family Research Council, said he has "personally met people" that identify as "witches" in the government and added that "Washington is the heart of evil in the United States, as well as the world."
During an interview on The Jim Bakker Show, Sept. 29, Maginnis explained that there are essentially three layers operating in the federal government: the politicians and the bureaucats; the lobbyists, special interests, and other groups that seek to influence the politicians; and the demonic or spiritual level that influences the first two layers.
To put it into context, Maginnis, a West Point graduate, said, “I have 50 years in Washington, D.C. I am coming here today -- literally my job is in the Pentagon. I’ve been there 15 years this time. Before that I was the vice president for policy at the Family Research Council in Washington, so I dealt with all the policy."
"I’ve personally met people that identify themselves as witches that are in the government," he said. "I have seen things in the government I will not talk about."
"But over 50 years, I’ve got a wealth of experience of working with the political class, the bureaucracy, the lobbyists, who I know," he said. "I’ve been in the non-government organizations and then, of course, I’ve been very much involved in the spiritual climate in Washington."
"So when I talk about those three layers [of governance and the occult], they’re all very, very clear to me, they’re all very interactive," said Maginnis, "and Washington is the heart of evil in the United States, as well as the world.”
Earlier this year, Maginnis, the former chief of the U.S. Army Infantry School's leadership and ethics training branch, described the nation's capital as follows: “You have a lot of witchcraft. You have a lot of hedonism. You have all the issues. When I think of Sodom and Gomorrah I often think of Washington, D.C. in the same thought."
Over the years, Lt. Col. (ret.) Maginnis has testified numerous times before Congress and appeared on countless news outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel.
