Paranoia strikes deep in the Trump White House. But maybe there really is something resembling a deep state embedded in the government.

Republican Senator Ben Sasse pondered the president’s paranoia on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, “I don’t understand the morality of why anyone would write the piece, because it seems pretty obvious to me that what it’s going to do is foster more paranoia.”
