The deep state is a mysterious entity that has long existed, particularly in the military-industrial complex and intelligence agencies, believes Robert W. Merry of National Interest. Ever since President Trump campaigned on the promise to improve relations with Russia, actors within the government have worked to prevent this by undermining him. Their bias against him was clear. The investigation into collusion with Russia was helped along with intel that was unverified. Certain people within important federal agencies have sought to use their power to enforce their agenda, which has happened for decades. The deep state is real.
The Republican-led assertion that a ‘deep state’ exists within the government and is trying to wrongly topple President Trump is false, argues Glen Carle of The Daily Beast. American intelligence agencies are apolitical and have done everything to complete their work in an unbiased manner. The Nunes Memo’s allegations against the FBI are an attempt to defame its investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 election. There are several systems in place that prevent political opinions from tainting the probe. FBI procedures repeatedly ruled that there was enough information to continue investigating. There is no deep state.
