"Secret society" in this case actually means deep state, without saying "deep state"
It's as real as it gets now.
“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States
"Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand." ~ Benjamin Disraeli; Prime Minister of England
Past presidents of the United States and other high profile political leaders have repeatedly issued warnings over the last 214 years that the U.S. government is under the control of an “invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”
According to six of our former presidents, one vice-president, and a myriad of other high profile political leaders, an invisible government that is “incredibly evil in intent” has been in control of the U.S. government “ever since the days of Andrew Jackson” (since at least 1836). They “virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties…
From Washington to JFK: Former Presidents Warn About Illuminati
"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the fields of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." ~ Woodrow Wilson
“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation).” ~ George Washington

Hahahah, can this year get any better?
Charges filed against Team Clinton, charges filed against the last president for illegally spying on a political candidate, and Mueller and company get charges filed for malicious prosecution, and Feinstein and company be impeached for ethics violations.
It can get a whole lot better.

Just wondering how high the pucker-factor is in DC right now.
Not that I think anything will come of it, but what we've all guessed at for years is finally confirmed.
My guess is "not very" - at least over this.
That the FBI and intelligence agencies dislike Trump is no real surprise. He's been attacking them since he was a candidate. Not many human beings will cower and crawl and lick the hand of someone who kicks them and calls them names.

They exchanged 50,000 text messages over the course of TWO YEARS. That's roughly 35 texts a day each.
There are an estimated 400 text messages, over the course of 5 months, missing.
The Justice Department’s inspector general is investigating why the FBI did not retain text messages for five months, including those exchanged by two senior officials involved in the probes of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
In December, the Justice Department provided Congress with 375 text messages dated between Aug. 16, 2015, and Dec. 1, 2016, including those between Strzok and Page, according to a letter that Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd sent to Congress on Friday.
Trump on Tuesday called news the FBI was missing five months' worth of texts from the agent, Peter Strzok, "one of the biggest stories in a long time." Strzok was removed from Mueller's team following the discovery of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with an FBI lawyer, that is incorrect. Trump suggested incorrectly the number of missing messages was "perhaps 50,000." The Justice Department says that's the overall number of messages found on FBI servers.
His tweet appeared to confuse the number of missing texts, which is unknown, with the overall 50,000 texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page that were discovered on Justice Department servers.

Wait for it.
If there is some substance, there will be judge and jury.
Or at least some kind of cleaning the ranks, as per usual for every new ruler.
Haven't seen anything of that kind, yet.
Rep. Ron Johnson, the chair of the House Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said Tuesday Congress had developed intelligence on a group of FBI officials holding clandestine meetings away from the Bureau’s Washington D.C. HQ, according to his interview on FOX News
An FBI informant has apparently informed Congress that a secret society at the FBI was holding secret meetings off-site after the election of Donald Trump.
On Special Report with Bret Baier Tuesday evening, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) called it "corruption of the highest levels of the FBI."
"That secret society — we have an informant that's talking about a group that were holding secret meetings off-site," Johnson said. "There is so much smoke here."
This comes after text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page, his paramour, revealed that a "secret society" of officials within the FBI met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect.
"A secret society?" Baier asked." Secret meetings off-site of the Justice Department? And you have an informant saying that?"
"Correct," Johnson answered matter-of-factly
