Trump vs Deep State

Trump is now on the warpath against the Deep State which is targeting him, now calling for an investigation into former president Barack Obama for requesting wiretapping of Trump Tower during the election campaign. This follows the announcement by Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions in recusing himself from handling any investigation into allegations of Trump ties with Russia. Mr Sessions had recused himself following Deep State leaks against him which exposed that he too had met with the Russian ambassador, albeit as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Like the ISI, the American security apparatus seems to be acting like an independent rogue entity, systematically using its surveillance powers to selectively gather and expose information on those it deems to be a threat to its vested interests. Because Trump is strong-willed, rather than being cowed he is instead gearing up for counter-attack against Deep State forces, and preparing to take his case to the American people.

#deepstate is rogue. even the nytimes has started using that term, of course, pretending that it's not deepstate. just like rahul, sonia and manmohan used to blame 'the government' when they were ruling.
