Summary
"Three-quarters of Americans believe that a group of unelected government and military officials secretly manipulate or direct national policy in the United States. President Trump blames the 'deep state' for his impeachment. But what is the American 'deep state' and does it really exist? This sweeping exploration examines the CIA and FBI scandals of the past fifty years--from the Church Committee's exposure of Cold War abuses, to Abscam, to false intelligence about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, to NSA mass surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden. It then investigates the claims and counterclaims of the Trump era, and the relentless spread of conspiracy theories online and on-air. The feverish debate over the 'deep state' raises core questions about the future of American democracy. Based on dozens of interviews with career CIA operatives and FBI agents, In Deep answers whether the FBI, CIA, or politicians are protecting or abusing the public's trust"--
