CNN analyst Philip Mudd called for a “shadow government” to oppose President Trump after the president sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over U.S intelligence officials at a press conference on Monday.

“When do members of the president’s inner circle start to say, ‘Look, we have an overseas dilemma where [Trump] is portraying us, in terms of the American government, as worse than a tyrant?'” he asked.

Mudd pointed out that a number of federal institutions back Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe and want to see its conclusions.

“When do we see almost a shadow government come out and say – we cannot side with the government?” he asked. “Whether it’s the Cabinet or the Senate – I think that’s the question.”
