(National Sentinel) It’s Real: Since President Donald J. Trump took his oath of office he’s been under assault — from leaks, from subversion, from intimidation, and stonewalling of his agenda, by members of the “Deep State,” which a series of experts reveal absolutely does exist.
As reported by The Daily Caller, most Americans overwhelmingly believe that a Deep State exists and that “it’s secretly manipulating or directing national policy.”
But who are these people and aren’t they supposed to be working for — not against — the president? And how come they believe they are so untouchable they can mock, defy, and undercut him?
“These are career individuals who essentially have learned how to use the tools of state for their own personal political objectives,” Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a former Army officer with decades of intelligence experience, told The Daily Caller in a recently-released video (see below).
“The concept of the Deep State refers, in the popular imagination, to a group of unelected officials who work within the intelligence community and have the power to frustrate or subvert a sitting president of the United States,” noted award-winning investigative journalist James Rosen. “Maybe even to evict one.”
“A lot of these people cannot be fired, and they consistently leak damaging information about” President Trump, adds Saagar Enjeti, White House correspondent for The Daily Caller.
