The deep sate has existed for years. Most of the time the citizenry was not aware of its existense. Manipulation of the facts to fit the deep state's agenda was an ongoing process. Things will be done as the deep state desires or they will creat havoc on the opposition.
The liberal democrats have been a major force behind the deep state. When a democrat was in the white house all was peaceful Littl, if anything, was said when a crisis arose. Afterall it was in the deep state's best interest to often sweep the problem under the rug.
But, when a republican was elected the deep state put in motion various actions to hinder or remove the republican administration.
What is interesting is with the current administration the deep state has been caught in so many lies, the people are beginning to see how the deep state has manipulated the government for so long.
