FROM THIS EPISODE

In this divided country, it’s no surprise that “deep state” means different things to different people. Rush Limbaugh and others on the far-right see an entrenched bureaucracy planting leaks to the media to undermine President Trump. In his book, Deep State: the Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of Shadow Government, Michael Lofgren describes a history of private interests in control of public institutions. It's Ike's "military-industrial complex" on steroids, with players including Wall Street and Silicon Valley, enhancing their profits at the expense of public service.
