The term “Deep State” has been around for some time. Usually it refers to the military using undue influence on a civilian government. Recently, it has been used by some Republicans who have charged that an organized element in the executive branch has formed to hurt the Trump presidency.
Does it exist? The idea that there is a conspiracy so vast that it is a government within our government is absurd. However, there are a number of individuals either working together or separately against the Trump administration.
We have seen ample evidence. Some within the Justice Department and FBI have conspired to hurt Trump’s chances of being elected. Peter Strozk and Lisa Page even talked about an “insurance policy” to prevent his election. There have been numerous leaks of classified information. A former FBI agent was just sentenced to prison and a Treasury employee has just been arrested for leaking.
Americans of all political stripes should be outraged that there are those within our government are plotting to harm a presidential administration. Unfortunately, it looks like many on the Left no longer believe in democracy. Instead, they want a Democratacy, in which only one party rules.
