CNN analyst and former intelligence officer Philip Mudd made headlines following President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s joint press conference on Monday, as Mudd called for a “shadow government” to stop the Trump administration.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared Trump’s performance at Helsinki “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I’ve ever seen.”

Mudd agreed and then went further.

“My question would be when do member of the President’s inner circle start to say, ‘Look, we have an overseas dilemma where you are portraying, in terms of the American government, as worse than a tyrant, that is Vladimir Putin.'”

He added: “The Secretary of Homeland Security came out with statements this week about continued Russian interference. This was not on Obama’s watch, that’s this week. FBI director continues the investigation. Department of Justice continues support for the investigation. Congress continues saying that this investigation is legitimate.”

Then Mudd made the surprising call for a “shadow government” to stop Trump.

“Curious point in American government,” Mudd said. “When do we see almost a shadow government come out and say, ‘We cannot side with the government, whether its cabinet or the Senate.’ I think that’s the big question.”
