White House officials 'convinced they may be victims of deep state conspiracy'

White House officials 'convinced they may be victims of deep state conspiracy'Top White House aides – including Mr Trump’s trusted adviser Steve Bannon – are increasingly worried that the so-called “deep state” is conspiring to bring the presidency down, sources tell Politico. In the weeks after Mr Trump dismissed former FBI Director James Comey, the White House was hit with a series of damaging leaks, from Mr Trump alleged disclosure of highly classified intelligence to Russian officials, to his son-in-law’s reported attempt to set up back-channel communications with Russia. Commentators on Fox News, Mr Trump’s channel of choice, have helped push the idea that these leaks come from an American “deep state” – a body within the government working to bring down those in power.
