(National Sentinel)Â 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 byÂ The Daily Caller, most Americans overwhelmingly believe that a Deep State exists and thatÂ â€œitâ€™s secretly manipulating or directing national policy.â€
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?
â€œThese are career individuals who essentially have learned how to use the tools of state for their own personal political objectives,â€ Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a former Army officer with decades of intelligence experience, toldÂ The Daily Caller in a recently-released video (see below).
â€œThe 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.â€
â€œA lot of these people cannot be fired, and they consistently leak damaging information aboutâ€ President Trump, adds Saagar Enjeti, White House correspondent for The Daily Caller.
